Welcome to our website and our church!

‘God is our hope and strength, a very present help in trouble’

(Psalm 46)


The global outbreak of COVID-19 is having an unprecedented impact on our way of life, and the Church is no exception. Following advice from the Archbishops of Canterbury and York, public services at St Mary’s Hitchin on Sundays and on all other days of the week are suspended until further notice. As of 22 March 2020, the church building has also been closed to the public until further notice, and Church House is also closed.

The work of the church does continue. The Rev’d Chris Bunce, our Vicar can be contacted at: vicarstmaryshitchin@gmail.com.

Each Sunday during the lockdown you will be able to find a video of recorded worship and music to bring St Mary’s into your homes, at the following link: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC0JJ6EPrOIUybuFe3mJvFzg/videos

If you would like some resources to pray at home you can access the booklet Praying in a Pandemic.

If you would like to keep in touch with St Mary’s and receive the weekly Bulletin , please email Robin: robinwendysternberg@gmail.com and we add you to the circulation list.

You can also keep in touch with us through Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/StMarysChurchHitchin/ and Twitter @stmaryshitchin_ .

Keep us, good Lord,
under the shadow of your mercy in this time of uncertainty and distress.
Sustain and support the anxious and fearful,
and lift up all who are brought low;
that we may rejoice in your comfort
knowing that nothing can separate us from your love
in Christ Jesus our Lord. Amen.

The Rev’d Christopher Bunce

Vicar of St Mary’s, Hitchin & Team Rector of Hitchin with St Paul’s Walden and Preston
