St Mary of the Purification
Welcome! ‘Our churches here in Blidworth and Rainworth are working together with God, enabling relationships in community’
Our vicar is Revd Zoe Burton
We seek to offer a safe peaceful space for people to meet with God and find their home within God’s family. Whether you consider yourself to have no faith or you are new to faith, or have been a Christian for a long time, all are welcome here, regardless of background, age or circumstances. We extend an invitation for people to come and experience God’s love for you!
Our church buildings are opening up after a 4 month's closure during the Covid 19 pandemic. The church has remained very much alive during this time and continues to do so: our Sunday services with coffee time afterwards and Morning Prayer services are currently online on Zoom, we meet for Zoom Coffee on Friday mornings and join online in Night Prayer which can be accessed through Facebook, Youtube and this website; the church is active in prayer and worship, supporting families through funeral ministry, in pastoral care, supporting and meeting needs and partnership with other organisations in our communities.
Ensuring that children and young people as well as adults are kept safe whilst in our care is an integral part of our church life. If you have any concerns about safeguarding please contact:
