The closure of our church building
It is with great sadness that the PCC has decided to close our church building until further notice. Supported by the Diocese of St Albans, and because of the local Covid-19 infection rate, we have concluded that it is not safe to encourage gatherings at St Mary’s.
Many other services, social and learning opportunities at this special time of year will continue online.

Serving East Barnet
Learn how we care for our community, and offer special services and support for you.
Welcome to St Mary’s, East Barnet
St Mary’s is an inclusive Christian community, seeking to learn more about Jesus and to explore his call to each one of us. Families and children play an important part in our community life, both in church and in our local schools. Whoever you are, and wherever you are on this shared journey of faith, you will be welcome at St Mary’s.
Our mission is educational, and we develop the depth of our faith in dialogue with the challenge of living in the modern world. Through a programme of learning initiatives, we explore important issues in theology, society and the arts. We regularly hold courses to prepare young people to receive communion and to help those exploring their faith before confirmation. Families and children play an important part in our community life both in church and in our local schools, and we have a very close relationship with St Mary’s Church of England Primary School.
We seek to serve our local area, and this church has been at the heart of the parish of East Barnet for nearly a thousand years: bearing a constant witness to the love of God.
