St Mary’s Church, Plumtree continues to be alive and active, but our building must close.
We are experiencing a huge increase in the number of people falling sick with COVID-19. We must physically distance ourselves from one another and prevent the spread of infection in order to save lives.
Therefore, as well as public worship being suspended, this church, together with all church buildings in the Diocese of Southwell and Nottingham, is now closed.
Our worship of God and our care for each other continue but cannot be exercised in this church.
The COVID-19 page on this website contains details of how to join others online for prayer, worship, study, and community life.
In an emergency you can contact the Rector, Revd Trevor Kirkman.
"Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength… Love your neighbour as yourself. There is no commandment greater than these."
To protect the vulnerable amongst us, please do not leave your home other than for essential trips.
From the Archbishops of Canterbury and York:
"We are asking the Church of England in all its Parishes, Chaplaincies and ministries to serve all people in a new way. Public worship will have to stop for a season. Our usual pattern of Sunday services and other mid-week gatherings must be put on hold. But this does not mean that the Church of England has shut up shop. Far from it. We need to look at new ways of serving everyone."
"This is a defining moment for the Church of England. Are we truly a Church for all or just the Church for ourselves? We urge you sisters and brothers to become a different Church in these coming months: hopeful and rooted in the offering of prayer and praise and overflowing in service to the world."
