Welcome to our church of St Mary Magdalene in Willen, designed by Robert Hooke after the Great Fire of London, and completed in 1680. It is a living, breathing church, often dubbed the jewel of Milton Keynes and Hooke's only complete building outside London, still in regular use almost 350 years later.

We pray for peace in Ukraine, Palestine, Israel and all the war-torn countries of our world
