Welcome and supporting resources

During this difficult time when our church buildings are closed, we are still church, praying and caring for our community. Hucknall Parish Church and St John’s on Nottingham Road, like all other churches, receive no central funding to pay our bills, maintain our beautiful buildings and sustain our work in offering care and support to everyone in our community.

The church relies on the generosity of our congregations, members of the Hucknall community and visitors from the UK and beyond. With the closure of our church buildings, we cannot receive all the gifts that we usually would.

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.

Welcome to you all. To offer support in the best way we are able to at present, our website home page has been changed to include information, guidance, and links to worship resources. It will be updated on a weekly basis.

The Church continues to be alive and active, but this and all church buildings in the Church of England are now closed. Our worship of God and our care for each other continue but cannot be done in this building. The churchwardens of this church can be contacted in an emergency by telephoning 0115 9636643 or 0115 9631503 or emailing jane_haywood@hotmail.com or kowalskimh@aol.com Thursday evening bookings through the Church Office are suspended until further notice.
