Sermons at Great St Mary’s

 Many notable sermons have been preached from Great St Mary’s pulpit over the centuries. Many of the great names from the Reformation have addressed the Great St Mary’s congregation, including Latimer, Ridley, and Bray. The Reformation theologian Martin Bucer was buried in the church. Years later, his body was dug up and burnt during the reign of Queen Mary — however a memorial plaque marks the place of his tomb.

Recent visiting preachers at Great St Mary’s include:

  • The Rev’d Dr Jeremy Morris, Master of Trinity Hall
  • Professor Tina Beattie, Professor of Catholic Studies and Director of the Catherine of Siena College and Digby Stuart Research Centre for Religion, Society and Human Flourishing at the University of Roehampton
  • Professor Robin Kirkpatrick, Fellow of Robinson College,
  • The Rt Rev’d Dr Bill Musk formerly Assistant Bishop for North Africa in the Anglican Diocese of Egypt with North Africa and the Horn of Africa and also Rector of St George’s Church, Tunis
  • Werner G Jeanrond, St Benet’s Hall, University of Oxford
  • The Rev’d Lucy Winkett, of Selwyn College, Rector of St James’s, Piccadilly, London
