Who are we?
The Parish of Walthamstow is a vibrant and diverse team of churches seeking to serve our part of urban northeast London, and see it transformed through the power of God’s Spirit. We are very ordinary people, caught up with an extraordinary God. We aim to be active members of the Church of England and the worldwide Christian family. St Gabriel’s, St Luke’s, St Mary’s and St Stephen’s work together and individually as we seek to help shape tomorrow’s Walthamstow.
We welcome people of all ages, races, and backgrounds. Each church is distinctive and we enjoy our differences. Together we know a living faith in Jesus Christ, experience God’s truth through the Bible, and believe that God’s love offers hope for our whole community.
We’re a local Church of England parish and part of the Diocese of Chelmsford.
Each of our churches is pursuing a vision for their ministry and mission. We share an understanding of our Purpose (what we are here for) and our Values (how we do things).
We aim to be vibrant members of the Church of England and the worldwide Christian family who help shape tomorrow’s Walthamstow. St Gabriel’s, St Luke’s, St Mary’s and St Stephen’s are four churches who embrace each other’s diversity as we seek the common good together.
