Welcome from The Ven. Amatu Onundu Christian-Iwuagwu
Welcome to St Mary the Virgin Anglican Church Harmondsworth website, one of the oldest church buildings in England – 1067AD; also serving Longford and Sipson.
We pride ourselves as a Bible Believing Anglican Church, diverse in age but united in our journey with God through faith in Christ Jesus. This faith is at the cornerstone of our Mission Action Plan.
You are welcome to come along whatever your age or whatever your background: whether you are one of Harmondsworth, Sipson or Longford regulars; a visitor from another parish or church tradition; a newcomer to church or the idea of church; an enquirer; a doubter; a struggler with life’s complexities; someone who is thinking about coming back to church after a while; or just someone who wants simply to come and sit quietly at the back.
We all need reminding from time to time that it is good to spend time together; or in peaceful reflection; or to come to understand more fully that God is never tired of enjoying our company and hearing from us.
We trust, above all, that the impression you will get from St Mary’s is of a place and a people of peace, of prayer; of hope and of love.
We do hope that you might be able to spend some time with us here at St Mary’s; the parish church threatened by the proposed Heathrow airport runway expansion.
Come to me, all you that are weary and are carrying heavy burdens,” Jesus says in Matthew’s Gospel, “and I will give you rest”.
Amen to that.
