This year we celebrate over 800 years of Christian presence and witness in our community. 2015 marks a significant anniversary for St Mary's. Following the sealing of Magna Carta on 15th June 1215, Archbishop Stephen Langton returned to London and tradition says that he stopped in Barnes to consecrate the newly enlarged parish church of St Mary's. To mark the beginning of the celebrations the Bishop of Southwark, the Rt Rev'd Christopher Chessun, will be preaching at the Candlemas 10am Service on Sunday 1st February.

We shall be joining together after this service for refreshments together. Please bring a contribution and let us celebrate the launch together. Full details of the events planned to mark this historic year can be seen here

On the evening of the same day there be another special event: a Service of Light at 6pm with choral music by both Senior and Junior Choirs. Our choirs will be joined by the Duomo Singers and a harpist for a real feast of choral music by Britten, Howells and Rachmininov
