Service for the bereaved - 1 November at 6pm

In the weeks and months following a funeral of a loved one, it can seem as though the world has rushed on. We're especially aware that as Christmas approaches, many people are missing someone special. On Sunday evening 1 November at 6pm, we'll have a quiet service that will allow us to remember with thanksgiving, to hear the names of those who have died read aloud in the church, and to light a candle.

All are welcome and you don't have to be a member of St Mary's to join us.

We're glad to partner Cards for Good Causes in supporting local, national and international charities.

Winter tree lights sparkle

We're thrilled that local businesses have helped to make our little stretch of Upper Street sparkle throughout the winter.

Angel London, which works with hundreds of businesses in the area, spotted the opportunity to brighten up our side of the street, which until recently looked rather gloomy when the sun set. Now, with tens of thousands of bright white lights, using less energy than a dozen conventional household bulbs, people are guaranteed to look up.

Christine Lovett, Director of Angel London, told us that this was a great way to mark the growth of the business improvement district to our part of Upper Street. We've been really impressed by the way that Angel London has nurtured relationships between the business community, local residents and Islington Council and are very grateful indeed for the support and encouragement.

An extra hour in bed

Don't forget that the clocks go back this weekend, so do enjoy an extra hour in bed before coming to church bright-eyed and bushy-tailed.

The photograph shows the inside of our church clock face. Though the faces and the mechanism for the hands are over 200 years old, they tell the time with split-second accuracy. If you want to get up in the middle of the night, you'll even see the hands automatically turn backwards to reach the correct time!
