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.

Prayer Along The Way
by Daphne Kitching

prayerWe have so many questions. Life is sometimes difficult and we can’t see our way. Thank you for Jesus who told us He is the Way. It doesn’t matter if we don’t always understand as long as we are on your special Way – 
in relationship with you through your precious Son, who died on the cross to make that possible. Help us to join the Way by putting our trust in what Jesus has done.
Help us to make it easy for others to find the Way – to find Jesus. Please give us revelation to know the right words to use and the right actions to take to draw people to you.
We ask in Jesus name and for your glory alone,
