Welcome and supporting resources

Latest update: we sadly find ourselves in the unfortunate position of once again not being able to host on-site worship in our churches. St Mary Magdalene, and St John the Evangelist are now closed for worship services for the period of lockdown between 5th November and 2nd December.

During this difficult time, we will again move to offering online worship via Zoom. If you have previously registered for worship in this way, future invitations will be sent to you as before. (Please email zoomworship@hucknallparishchurch.org.uk if you haven’t previously registered to take part).

FURTHER DETAILS CAN BE FOUND BELOW…

IMPORTANT: Click here to read a joint letter to the nation, from the Archbishop of Canterbury and the Archbishop of York.
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 is updated on a weekly basis.
