One parish, two churches

Welcome to a friendly church at the heart of our local community.

Christ Church offers a wide range of services throughout the week, culminating in our traditional Eucharist complete with incense, bells and choir. St Mary’s offers a more informal alternative with a choir.

We have lots of groups. Lots going on. And lots of ways to get involved. Old or young. Family, couple, or single. Committed. Undecided. Unconvinced. You’re welcome to join us.

So check out the service times, come along, and see what you think.

Adult Confirmation

Not confirmed yet? Want to know more? If you worship regularly and like to come up for a blessing at Communion, please do consider being confirmed. That would make you a full member of the church, sharing in Communion, one of the most important things we share together.

This year our confirmation service will be on Sunday 26th November at 4pm. In the weeks before that, we will offer a short series of weekly sessions, with ample opportunities to learn more about the Christian faith, to ask any questions you like and to get to know others on the same path.

The weekly classes will be at 7.30-9pm on Thursdays 2nd, 9th, 16th, November with the last session on Wednesday 22nd Nov. Please do let Fr Jack, Fr Richard or the Parish Office know if you are interested.

Upcoming events

We’re getting ready for a Cracker of a Christmas! Starting with our Cracker event on 2nd December. Read more about it here.

We hold regular events ranging from classical concerts and jazz nights to Wanstead’s Got Talent and the famous Parish Dog Show. Check out the diary to see what’s on the way.


Our weekly newsletter keeps you up with the latest notices, upcoming events, service times, ticket information, trips and pilgrimages. Oh yes – and parish news too.

Hire the Hall

The Parish Hall is an extremely popular venue for private parties and all kinds of other activities and events, from Antique fairs to Zumba classes. But book early – we get busy.


We maintain two beautiful churches. Perform a wide range of outreach work locally and overseas. And serve the community in a number of ways. Can you help?


Want to try a service but don’t know where to start? Interested in holding a wedding or baptism here? Or have any other questions about out parish?
