A place to pop into for quiet reflection.

This church is right in the middle of town, but is a friendly and anaccessible place of worship. It also has a very nice adjoining coffee shop. The Verger is very welcoming and... read more

I am not a christian, so I can't say anything about the religious or spiritual side of it. I have visited to see the christmas carol service in the past, but I won't go again. The gorgeous old pews have all gone and now there are just rows of boring modern chairs. This has ruined the looks of the place,... More

This church is right in the middle of town, but is a friendly and anaccessible place of worship. It also has a very nice adjoining coffee shop. The Verger is very welcoming and you never feel out of place just popping whilst visiting the Town.

I attended St Mary's Church recently to watch a Television Workshop production of The Roses of Eyam. My previous visit had been for a friend's funeral so I visited with some trepidation. The beautiful and historic church proved to be a perfect venue for a true, yet tragic, event that occurred during the outbreak of the bubonic plague in 1665.... More

I've just come back from one of my rare visits to church, but I feel totally uplifted. This is a beautiful old church from the 1400s. You can still see some of the floor stonework and more amazingly the stained glass, most of which was destroyed by the English talabanistic Puritans in the English civil war. So you can compare...

Having rediscovered my faith. I have started to attend church. Not one , not two but three church’s in total. All not at the same time. This church I come sometimes on a Thursday morning at 8.30 for Communion. It can be daunting if there are just you and another person taking communion in a small room to the right... More

I am biased about St Mary's Church. My eldest was Christened here. It's not huge but it is exceptionally pretty. And they let me use my mums old pudding bowl instead of the font and we played Django Reignheart and Steffan Grappelli. So even though it's a traditional church in a pretty part of Nottingham's old lace market (in name... More

Grade 1 listed it is the largest mediaeval building in Nottingham. Beautiful stained glass windows carved screens and ancient tombs. Sited on a prominent hill St. Mary's, parts of which dating back to 1380 and has seen a lot of history.

The church is located within the Lace Market area of Nottingham, surrounded by beautiful old buildings of their own historical standing. The church is opened to the public for free and hosts many a concert of classical music in the evenings. There are postcards and leaflets about the history and architecture of the church that can be bought inside for... More
