Welcome to the Parish of St Mary and Christ Church, Hendon.
Christians have been worshipping in Hendon for over 1000 years. Today Hendon is a busy and diverse North London suburb, in which we try to lead lives shaped by the life, death and resurrection of Jesus Christ. Week by week, and day by day, we meet to worship in our two churches: St Mary’s, on Church End at the top of Greyhound Hill, and Christ Church, Brent Street.
Although our Churches remain closed for public worship, St Mary's will be OPEN for private prayer on Sundays from 14.00-16.00 and Tuesdays/Thursdays 12.00-14.00. Social distancing will be observed and hand santizer will be available. We look forward to welcoming you as you reflect and pray in this peaceful place. We are gathering for worship via Zoom at 10.00 each Sunday - please contact the Vicar for the link.
Please note that the Parish Office is also CLOSED at present: emails are being monitored on a daily basis.

In following this guidance, and encouraging people to stay at home, Bishop Sarah speaks of how we are showing love and care to our neighbours and helping to protect the most vulnerable. The church building may be closed; but the church's people continue to pray.

: At St Mary & Christ Church Hendon, we believe that every person has a value and dignity because we are created in God’s own image and likeness. This is fully realised in the person of Jesus Christ. This implies a duty to value all people as bearing the image of God and therefore to protect them from harm. Safeguarding arrangments can be found here
