LATEST CHURCH UPDATE!!! 01/11/2020 (Following Government Guidelines)

St Mary’s must now close from Thursday 5th November 2020


As a result of the Prime Minister's announcement this evening regarding the lockdown beginning on Thursday 5th November, the Church of England and the Diocese of Southwell & Nottingham has updated its guidance re: the opening of churches during the lockdown. 

 Places of worship, including St Mary’s Bulwell, will be closed unless they are being used for:


  • Funerals.  Funerals can take place, and can be attended by a maximum of 30 people.  It is advised that only close friends and family attend.  Associated ceremonies such as the setting of memorial stones and the burial of ashes can also continue with up to 15 people in attendance.  Anyone working (eg. Licensed Lay Ministers, organists, choir, clergy, vergers etc) are not included in the attendance figures.  Social distancing should be maintained between people who do not live together or share a support bubble.

  • Individual prayer.  St Mary’s will be open for individual prayer during what would have been our normal service times (9.30am – 10am Thursdays, and 10am – 11am Sundays)

  • Recording/broadcasting any acts of worship (including Collective Worship/Assemblies)

  • Formal childcare or where part of a school

  • Essential voluntary and public services, such as food banks.

  • Other exempted activities such as some support groups


Wedding ceremonies will not be permitted to take place except in exceptional circumstances.

Welcome to 
St Mary the Virgin and All Souls Church
Welcome to St Mary the Virgin & All Souls, Bulwell.
There has been a church building on this site since 1134 AD.

St Mary’s is the spiritual home for a loving community of people who share a faith in Jesus Christ.
We try to be inclusive in everything we do, welcoming everyone regardless of race, gender or orientation.

We are what some might call “High Church” and so our choir and servers are robed and our clergy wear vestments. Incense is used occasionally. However, we are not stuffy – we like to enjoy ourselves!

  On our new and improved website, you will find an array of information about what we enjoy and what we try - "with varying degrees of success" - to do well. Please use the menu at the top of the page for more information, and please get in touch if you have any questions.

We hope you will come along and give St Mary’s a try – perhaps even join us – we look forward to welcoming you.
