Welcome and supporting resources

Welcome to you all from St Mary Magdalene church, Hucknall.
Due to the lockdown in response to the rise in the virus, Helen, Martin and Jane feel the wisest course of action at the moment is to close our buildings for in-person public worship until further notice.

We will therefore be worshipping on Zoom at 10am each Sunday, and at 10:15am each Thursday. Please email the parish office for Zoom details at stmarymh@outlook.com.

Please consider whether you can give at this time. If so, here’s how you can help: make a secure, online donation to our churches via the Give A Little website.
In line with current Covid-19 restrictions and the National Lockdown from 5th January 2021, our churches are NOW CLOSED until further notice. We continue to be alive and active, through our worship of God and our care for each other.
The Vicar, Revd Helen Chantry (0115 8747369), or the churchwardens of this church can also be contacted in an emergency, by telephoning 0115 9631503 or 0115 9636643, or by emailing helenchantry@btopenworld.com or jane_haywood@hotmail.com or kowalskimh@aol.com
The Parish Office is not yet open again at the John Godber Centre but you can contact us to make enquiries about services, weddings, baptisms or funerals.
