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.
Every Wednesday in Advent, Communion Service at 10 am
18th – Carol Service at 12 noon
24th – Christmas Eve Carol Service
The Service will be returning to the Ilkeston Market Place with the Salvation Army Band and members of local churches.
24th – Christmas Eve Holy Communion at 11:30pm
25th – Christmas Day Service at 10.00am
26th – Feast of St Stephen – No service
