Services in Church during COVID-19
It is with sadness that, due to the rapidly rising Covid19 infection rates, we have taken the decision to temporarily suspend all communal worship at St Mary's for the coming weeks.
We feel that this is the most responsible thing to do, for the safety of us all.
We will continue to offer services online as often as possible.
The Church will be open for private prayer for 2 hours from 10.00 am until 12.00 midday Wednesdays and Sundays.
To keep you and others safe, when visiting St Mary's, please :
comply with "Test & Trace" requirements. Use the NHS app on your phone to check in using the QR code in the porch. If you do not have a mobile phone with the app, please complete a paper form on entry and post it in the box provided.
use the sanitiser provided on entry and before you leave.
wear a face mask or other face covering inside the church.
observe social distancing in the church and in the churchyard.
sit in one of the pews that have not been taped off.
please do not visit if have symptoms of Covid19 or have been in contact with someone who has.
Check this website regularly for the latest St Mary's updates and keep an eye on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.
Please, stay safe, keep well and keep in touch!
With every blessing.
Revd Trevor, the Churchwardens & the PCC

Welcome to St Mary's Plumtree Crib Service for Christmas Eve
Bishop of Southwell's Advent & Christmas Message
Thank You from Bishop Paul
At the moment, due to the Coronovirus pandemic, we are not able to offer Home Communion.
If you are a former communicant of Plumtree church but can no longer easily get to church through age or infirmity and would like to have Holy Communion brought to you in your own home, all you have to do is contact us.
St. Mary’s, Plumtree now has a group of licensed lay ministers who can administer communion throughout the parish and one phone call is all it will take to get it organised for you.
Full details of the scheme are contained on the Home Communion page.
Don’t miss out on such a fundamental part of what it is to be Christian just because you can’t get about very well. We’ll gladly come to you. St Mary’s church is not just about the building.
At the moment, life at St Mary's is rather different than we are used to. We look forward to welcoming you back to the following services in Church, as soon as we are able.
As well at the regular Sunday and Wednesday services, Plumtree Church holds special services to celebrate the following events:
- Easter (with flowers in church)
- Animal Service (on "Lottie's Field" or in church, pictured right)
- Battle of Britain Service
- Eucharist for Harvest (with flowers in church)
- Commemoration of the Departed
- Service of Remembrance
- Midnight Mass on Christmas Eve
