Worshipping in person and online
Our church building is open for in person services. Many of our services will also be broadcast online, including on our very own YouTube channel.
Our building is open for personal prayer on Wednesdays 10 am – 12 noon and Saturdays 2 – 4pm.
We also seek to support you in these difficult times by offering downloadable resources, pastoral care and practical help. Learn more here.
Annual Meeting of Parishioners and Annual Parochial Church Meeting
Our AMP and APCM will be on Sunday 23 May. At the Parish Eucharist that morning, the service will include a reflection on our annual report and the church’s life in 2020. The legal meetings will then take place on zoom at 5pm. Please contact the parish office for an invitation to zoom.
At the AMP the election of churchwardens will take place; and at the APCM questions may be asked on the annual report that will soon be published and elections to the PCC will take place.
We wish to empower a PCC that is confident and committed; and which continues to model the diversity and inclusivity of our community by strengthening the representation of those who are female, young, disabled, LGBTQIA+ or from BAME backgrounds on the PCC.
You can read our annual report here.

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.
