St Mary's Church, Battersea is the local Church of England parish church in Battersea.
The parish is now within the diocese of Southwark. Christians have worshipped there regularly for well over a thousand years and continue to do so to this day. It is a Grade I listed building.
St Mary's stands on one of the earliest known consecrated sites on the south bank of the River Thames. The original church was built as early as 800 AD, presumably by the Saxons, and the present building was completed in 1777.

The church has strong connections with art and literature through William Blake, who was married here, and Turner, who painted the river from the vestry window. Benedict Arnold and his family are buried in the crypt, and the church has links with the explorer "Scott of the Antarctic".
