Welcome and supporting resources

Latest update: we are trying to be open when it is safe to be so for worship and prayer. We continue to pray in our homes, worship on Zoom and meet for fellowship in ways that are safe. We pray for the world at this difficult time and for wisdom for governments.

St Mary Magdalene’s Church is currently opening for Holy Communion on Thursdays at 10.15am, but sadly this is only for those who have booked in – for safety reasons. Please contact the parish office stmarymh@outlook.com, or 07538 735103, then remember your mask and take responsibility for your safety.

We are also open for Private Prayer on Sundays 4-5pm – again please bring your mask.

We worship on Zoom at 10am on Sunday – please email zoomworship@hucknallparishchurch.org.uk

These times will change as the situation develops – we hope to be open for Sunday worship soon.

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.

The Church continues to be alive and active, but we cannot open the building as often as usual. Our worship of God and our care for each other continue. The Vicar Rev Helen Chantry (0115 8747369), or the churchwardens of this church can 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
Thursday evening bookings through the Church Office are suspended until further notice.
