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 from the Community of the Holy Name
Provided by John Puxty

prayer  Almighty God whose blessed Son Jesus Christ was given the Name above every name:
give us grace faithfully to bear His Name, to worship Him in the freedom of the Spirit,
and to proclaim Him as the Saviour of the world,
who is alive and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God now and forever.
