Welcome to you all from St Mary Magdalene, and St John the Evangelist churches, Hucknall.
Our churches are open for on-site worship and will remain open as long as it is safe to do so.

We are open for worship Sunday:
8am St Mary Magdalene – 9.30am St John the Evangelist – 11am St Mary Magdalene.

We are open for worship Tuesday:
Holy Communion 10:15am St Mary Magdalene, followed by coffee/tea and biscuits.

First Sunday in the month:
6pm Hope and Remembrance Service at St Mary Magdalene for those who have been bereaved.

We are a community of ordinary people who want to live a life of faith, hope and love in response to God’s love for the whole of creation. We worship the God we meet in Jesus.

As a group of ordinary people – despite worshipping an extraordinary God – we make mistakes, don’t always agree, will never know all the answers to life’s questions but we try to be open to the prompting of the Holy Spirit in how we live each day.

We worship at St Mary Magdalene on the Market Place and St John the Evangelist on Nottingham Rd. We are part of the Diocese of Southwell and Nottingham in the Church of England.

If you would like to join us for worship or any of our activities, would like info about baptism and weddings, or visit our historic buildings then contact us.

St Mary Magdalene with St John the Evangelist Churches take their duty and obligation to protect all, extremely seriously. We have adopted the national Church of England’s robust procedures and guidelines.
