WELCOME TO ST-MARY-AT-HILL
On behalf of the Parish, Churchwardens and PCC I extend to St Anne's Lutheran congregation, on Trinity Sunday 2013, the warmest of welcomes to their new home here at St Mary-at-Hill.
We are so delighted that our partners at St Anne's will be sharing in the life of this place, where the Christian gospel has been preached for over 1000 years, both in words and music and in loving service to the surrounding community. We look forward very much to sharing in faith, life and witness and to discovering together God's future.
Holy, holy,holy is the Lord God Almighty; who was, and is, and is to come. (Rev 4:8)
The Rev'd Canon Dr Flora Winfield
The Church is usually open all day Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday. There is a service at 1300 on Wednesday and music playing on Thursday at lunchtime.
With the arrival of the Lutherans, even more will be happening each week, so watch out for more news soon

Do note the pictures in our toilets which are twinned with loos in the Congo.
See website to read about sanitation.
If the loos are shut, just ask for them to be opened

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.
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, opera and 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.
During the week, St Mary’s is a sanctuary of peace and quiet 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. There are benches to sit on in the churchyard. The area is tiny, but secluded. It is warm and welcoming inside when the weather outside is inclement, but pleasantly cool should it ever turn hot.
Come and see
