On a cold day in December 2017, Allchurches Trust attended a ground-breaking ceremony that had been 10 years in the planning. St Mary Magdalene’s Church on the edge of the canal at Paddington, between Little Venice on one side and the Warwick Estate on the other and not far from Grenfell Tower, is finally undergoing a major restoration.

A historic church in Paddington has become the only church in London to be shortlisted for a new £10,000 grant from the National Churches Trust.
The Grade I listed St Mary Magdalene’s Church in Paddington is the only church in the capital, and one of only five nationwide, to be shortlisted to receive the Friends Grant. The purpose of the grant is to provide additional support for churches which have previously received funding from the NCT, and are carrying out extensive restoration and expansion work.
St Mary Magdalene’s was previously awarded a £40,000 grant from the NCT, to help fund a project for the restoration of the historic fabric of the building, cleaning and restoring the stunning interior. This is part of a wider project backed by the Heritage Lottery Fund that includes the construction of a new annex to provide new facilities and meeting rooms, allowing St Mary Magdalene’s to increase its provision in the local community.
The contenders shortlisted for the Friends Grant include churches based in Derby, Wirral, Paisley and Gloucester, with only St Mary Magdalene’s representing London. The recipient of the grant will be chosen by the Friends of the National Churches Trust, with the winner being announced on 3 July.
Fr Henry Everett, Priest at St Mary Magdalene’s church said:
“We are delighted to have been recognised out of all the churches in London and shortlisted for this grant. The funding we have received so far will allow us to help restore St Mary Magdalene’s church to its former glory, and also begin expanding our facilities so that we can play a much greater pastoral and cultural role in the community. There are countless historic churches in London which do vital work, and we are very grateful for the NCT for choosing St Mary Magdalene’s as a potential recipients for this new grant.”
If you are a Friend of the National Churches Trust you can vote for St Mary Magdalene’s Church via the National Churches Trust website. If you are interested in learning more about the church’s restoration project you can do so by visiting their website.
First of all a huge thanks to all who have supported and attended our recent events at St Mary Magdalene’s. It’s wonderful to see the church come alive in the way that it can.
PDT with St. Mary Magdalene’ in Partnership with Westminster Adult Education Service invite you to attend the Winter Festival at St. Mary Magdalene’s.
On the 21 Saturday 1-3pm at St. Mary Magdalene’s Church you can expect to be spoiled with an array of fun activities for you and your children. Crèche, music and refreshments will be provided.
