Facts about St Mary's Church Marylebone, London

The Church of Saint Mary on Wyndham Place and Bryanston Square in the heart of London is a Church of England in the parish of Marylebone, which is devoted to the Blessed Virgin Mary. It was constructed between 1823 and 1824 out of brick, and it has a rounded stone portico, a round tower, and a tiny dome that is crowned with a cross.

St. Mary’s Church Marylebone is a great place to visit whether you’re new to London, curious in Christianity, looking for a new spiritual home, are returning to church, or are just curious about what it’s like to worship with Londoners. On Sundays, the congregation has two services: one at 11:00 a.m., during which age-specific groups for kids and teenagers meet, and another at 6:30 p.m., which is open to people of all ages but skews significantly towards the young working population. Midweek, the church hosts a variety of workshops and seminars in which people from all walks of life are welcome.

Bombs dropped during World War II destroyed most of the church, however the tower and front façade were mostly spared from the destruction. Later on, the church underwent extensive remodelling to become a 5,000-cubic-meter venue for the revival of evangelical worship. This transformation was based on a concept that was developed by John Seely and Paul Paget.

The church features tall, crystal-clear windows that let in an abundance of natural light. Murals by Brian Thomas adorn the eastern and western walls. In spite of bombing, the church’s lectern, baptismal font, and Royal coat of arms are still intact
