Our History- sample Mary’s was set up by St Mary’s Church in 2008 to manage and develop its long established community work so that it could grow and flourish meeting the needs of the local area in and around Islington. Children and young people have been an important focus of this work but not exclusively. St Mary’s Neighbourhood Centre and Crypt following its refurbishment in 2009 has become a busy hub of a very wide range of community activities welcoming thousands of visitors every year of all ages and backgrounds. Thanks to the generosity of St Mary’s church sharing its buildings, community activities have multiplied over the years and now run seven days a week from early morning to late night.
