Festal services

Feast days and other occasions

As a City-centre church, our congregations are drawn from among those working in the shops and offices of the Parish. These being closed at the weekend, there is no congregation for Sunday services at St Mary-le-Bow.

For Sunday worship, we refer you to St Paul's Cathedral, which is nearby, and to other local churches which may be found through the London Diocesan website. If you're looking for a church in your area or for your parish church, please click here:
