St Mary-at-Hill

Church for Billingsgate

Welcome to St Mary-at-Hill


St Mary's is currently in vacancy; ie without a priest-in-charge, but arrangements are in place for all our usual activities to continue until an appointment is made.

Our partners at St Anne's Lutheran Church now share in the life of this place, where the Christian gospel has been preached for over 1000 years, in words and music and in loving service to the surrounding community. We are delighted to be sharing with them in faith, life and witness.

VENUE HIRE
To bring in income for our work, we let the space.  Wedding receptions, private receptions, formal or informal lunches or dinners can be accommodated.
St Mary-at-Hill is suitable for conferences, theatrical rehearsals and productions, choir and orchestra rehearsals, auditions and competitions, major concert performances, recitals and recordings. We own movable chairs, portable staging, an enviable piano and organ and have a splendid acoustic! What is not here can be hired in. To discuss a booking, contact the administrator.

THE BUILDING
Much of the original church was destroyed in the Great Fire of London (1666), but the walls and frame remained standing.  The building has survived two further major fires, and it stood unscathed through the Blitz. Although marked by its experiences, the spectacular interior retains the beauty and grace of Wren's vision.

WELCOME
During the week, St Mary’s is a sanctuary among the busy streets.  The versatile interior is much larger than is apparent from outside. You are invited to step in and see and share its splendour. Open to all. There are benches to sit on in the churchyard.  The area is tiny, but secluded.  The welcome inside the church is always warm.

Come and see.
