Ride and Stride 2013


We're delighted to be participating in Ride + Stride 2013 on Saturday 14 September.

Ride+Stride is a sponsored bike ride or walk in which people from all over the country walk or cycle between churches, exploring and enjoying the countryside from Cornwall to Northumberland. The money they raise helps to preserve some of Britain’s 47,000 churches, chapels and meeting houses which are at risk of falling into serious disrepair.

As long as it's not raining, cycling visitors to St Mary's on Ride and + Stride day may bring their bikes into the church, through the wide steps. Alternatively, there's a bike rack at the entrance door.

Our unusually large and bright church will be open from 9.30am until 5pm.
  • Toilet available to Riders and Striders
  • Water, squash and biscuits available throughout the day
  • Free church history booklets, self-guided tours, and friendly St Mary's hosts to answer your questions
  • Members of the City of London and Eastern Society of Organists playing our historic organ
