St Mary's church
Move cursor over to enlarge
Welcome to St Mary the Virgin & All Souls, Bulwell. There has been a church building on this site since 1134 AD.

St Mary’s is the spiritual home for a loving community of people who share a faith in Jesus Christ. We try to be inclusive in everything we do, welcoming everyone regardless of race, gender or orientation.

We are what some might call “High Church” and so our choir and servers are robed and our clergy wear vestments. Incense is used occasionally. However, we are not stuffy – we like to enjoy ourselves!

  On these webpages you will find information about what we enjoy and what we try - with varying degrees of success - to do well. Please use the tabs at the side of the page for more information, and please get in touch if you have any questions.

We hope you will come along and give St Mary’s a try – perhaps even join us – we look forward to welcoming you.

Andrew Fisher
God bless you,

Fr Andrew Fisher, Vicar.
