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.
The Vicar’s Prayer for December
Gracious God, this is a time for rejoicing, for celebration, for exulting in your goodness. We praise and thank you for the wonder of your love and for the supreme demonstration of that love in Jesus Christ. A child is born for us, a son is given – with joy we greet him!
From a book of prayers by Nick Fawcett
