Welcome to St Mary’s church, a friendly Anglican community on Watford High Street. We are located in the heart of Watford, where the church has been the spiritual centre of the town for 800 years.


The main church building is currently being refurbished but we are still ‘open for business’: services are being held in the adjacent church centre, accessed through the double doors in the corner of the church forecourt, and the vicar and office administrator can be contacted as normal. The work will be completed in spring 2019 – come and see the end result!


St Mary’s is home to a vibrant group of ordinary people who are discovering that Jesus Christ is relevant to the lives of adults and children in the 21st century.


Our vision is to be a growing church in the heart of Watford that:

– shares the Christian message of God’s love and our salvation through Jesus Christ with the people of Watford and beyond;

– models the love, forgiveness and reconciliation that is exemplified through Jesus’ death on the cross;

– is welcoming to everyone, regardless of their status, wealth, gender, race, sexuality or religion

– provides a focus for public Christian worship.
