St. Mary Staining is a lost church in Oat Lane,[1] northeast of St. Paul's Cathedral, in the City of London.

The first reference to it is to "Ecclesia de Staningehage" in 1189, probably deriving from a family from Staines holding land in the area of the church.[2] It was destroyed in the Great Fire of London in 1666 and not rebuilt.[3] Its parish was united to St. Michael Wood Street in 1670,[4] and later to St. Alban Wood Street in 1894, and finally St. Vedast Foster Lane in 1954.

Nikolaus Pevsner found a "few battered tombstones" in nearby Oat Lane.[5] Since 1965 its site has been a City of London Corporation garden, containing a historic tree; an adjacent office block was built semi-circular so as not to damage it.
