Civic Service at St Mary's Harrow on the Hill

St. Mary's Harrow on the Hill

A place of peace and prayer for over 900 years


St. Mary's Church has been ministering to the Harrow community for over 900 years. Today, St Mary's is Harrow's most recognisable landmark and we remain a lively presence in what has become the most religiously diverse borough in the UK.


We hold regular services on Sunday and Wednesdays for everyone to attend.

Save the Spire Campaign


As many of you will know, we are currently faced with a £440,000 re-leading cost for our iconic spire. This will involve checking the medieval wooden frame on which the existing tiles are secured before boarding it over and replacing the lead. Our Save the Spire campaign is being conducted in partnership with the Spirewatch appeal, and the local community through events, fairs, and donations. So far, we have raised £180,000 but we're only some of the way there and the successful maintenance of the spire depends on your generous donations!

Donations can be made via our JustGiving page linked below, or directly through bank transfer. The Church bank details can be found in our campaign leaflet, which can be downloaded below.
