The Parish of Walthamstow is a vibrant and diverse team of Anglican churches seeking to serve our part of urban northeast London and see it transformed through the power of God’s Spirit, and we’d love to have you join us.

We aim to be active members of the Church of England and the worldwide Christian family. As a Parish, we are working to make Walthamstow a better place for everyone 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.

Listening Training with Citizens UK

Wednesday, 3rd May 2017, 7pm – 9.15pm, St Mary’s RC Primary School, Chingford 

As a Parish, we’re excited to be offering free training with Citizens UK on Wednesday, 3rd May, from 7pm – 9.15 pm at St Mary’s RC Primary School in Chingford. On the evening, we’ll meet on the platform at Walthamstow Central at 6.30pm to catch the overground train to Chingford.

At the Listening Training, we’ll learn more about key aspects of Community Organising, including how to have effective one-to-one conversations, how to host House Meetings and more. As part of strengthening our alliance in Waltham Forest, we’re hoping to have hundreds of conversations with our neighbours in 2017 about what matters most to them and what they are concerned about; from these conversations, we will then build a manifesto to present to politicians. Do join us on 3rd May – we’d love to have you!
