You have made a great choice considering booking St Mary’s as a venue. We run events week-in-week out and have incredible and versatile spaces that can be tailored to suit your every need.
However, did you know that as a registered charity every time you book with us you are not only sourcing yourself an excellent event venue but also enabling our vast range of charitable projects and the upkeep of a Grade 1 listed heritage site?
Venue hire is one of the main avenues through which we fund our charitable work, Love Marylebone. Its aim is to engage with our community here in Marylebone (and further afield). With your support, we can continue to support and develop our many projects within the community.
Through Love Marylebone, a Social Supermarket provides affordable fresh food, cupboard staples and hygiene equipment. We also prepare homeless meals to be able to give nourishment and meaningful relationships to those who are homeless in London.
St Mary’s partners with charities such as CAP to be able to provide money courses to provide people with tools to budget money responsibly and to learn and grow in confidence in managing finances. Through the charity TLG, St Mary’s has partnered with the local primary school to be able to offer year-long mentoring schemes to support children in education. They also have volunteers who regularly visit Bakhita house, a safe house in Westminster for women who have escaped the trauma of trafficking. Bakhita House provides a home, safety and advice allowing them to begin the recovery process.
St Mary’s also has an over 20-year partnership with Kiwoko hospital and Goshen school in Uganda. Shadrach pictured below has incredible vision and love for his community in Uganda, and amongst countless other successes has set up a school with boarding options for orphans and a vocational college. It is incredible to be able to provide some support to the work he and his team are doing. It is so good when he comes to London to share his knowledge and wisdom with us too.
This is only a flavour of what we are doing here at St Mary’s and we would love for you to help ‘make change with us’. Every event we host helps us do even more for the community we are in and the projects we are engaged in.
