About Us

St Mary’s stands at the very heart of Ilkeston and is the ancient parish church of the town. We value both our history and location, seeking to reach out to the community that surrounds us and to value all that is best in our heritage, while being open to all the new things that God has in store for us.

Our Mission Statement commits St Mary’s to “making and sustaining dedicated followers of Jesus of all ages.” We value all those that God brings to us of whatever age and seek to help each grow in love of God and neighbour.

As a church we are seeking to build friendship with God and one another through biblical preaching, Home Groups, regular socials after our main Sunday service as well as through our other assorted activities.

We would be delighted to welcome you to St Mary’s.
