Welcome to the Parish of Wanstead. The Parish Office will be closed from Thursday 21st July until Tues 9th August. If there are urgent matters during that time, please contact the churchwardens (see Contacts page under About for details).
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.
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?
