The Parish of Walthamstow is a vibrant and diverse team of Anglican churches and we’d love to have you join us. As active members of the Church of England and the worldwide Christian family, we want to make Walthamstow a better place for everyone. We do this through our work with Citizens UK, the Forest Churches Emergency Night Shelter and through our Christians Against Poverty centre.

We welcome people of all ages and backgrounds. Join us as we seek to grow in our knowledge and love of God, to grow numerically, to grow in reach and impact in Walthamstow and to grow in our love for our neighbours and for each other.

We’re a local Church of England parish and part of the Diocese of Chelmsford.
