Welcome to St.Mary's, Arnold.

St. Mary's is a busy church, which is situated just outside the centre of Arnold, off the Calverton Road. It has stood at the heart of our community for nearly 1000 years. The folk of Arnold people have worshipped here, cherished the building and maintained a tradition of ministry and care for our community.
We have now created a specific area on our website, which gives details on how we are doing church and also providing other information on what is going on. You will also need to review the new procedures for our services.

Churches are now allowed to be open again. However with the high incidence of Covid cases in our communities, St.Mary's will continue to be cautious with opening up until after the Summer Holidays.

Our Church is now open for Prayer every Wednesday :  from 2 pm to 3 pm  

Then every Sunday we will be meeting in Church at 10.30 am for Morning Worship and sometimes Communion. However it will be necessary to book in for each service the week before by contacting David Rodgers ( or 0115 953 1654)

There may also be a mid-week evening  Zoom service once a month and so do check first.
In everything we do, we are focussed on community, Bible reading, worship and prayer.

If this is your first visit, why not find out more about us by exploring our website? We hope this will encourage you to come along to one of our services. You will be very welcome!
On the pages of this website, you will find different articles and information about ministries and groups within our community. They are all important to us and each is a different facet of the commission God has given us. It is our desire and hope that wherever you get involved, you will find the same values and vision at the heart of all we do, from outreach to the young people in Arnold to reaching out to everybody in our community.
Now that restrictions on Churches have been relaxed, St. Mary's will be running a couple of events for children in the summer holidays.

Unfortunately our Activity Week was too difficult to run this year because of Covid-19, but we will be running a shorter version over two days, which we are sure you will enjoy.

We are also running three 'Open Play' sessions on three Monday mornings (See poster).

For more information please go to our Activity Week website page.
