St Mary's Radcliffe on Trent

Sharing God's Love

Church Services

Toddlers and babies are very welcome in services. (Yes, we do realise that young children do not always stay in one place or keep totally quiet!!)

However, if you would feel more at ease, a special area is available in the tower room at the back of the church. Your child is welcome to play here during part or all of the service and you can still listen to the service via a speaker. It is also a good place to feed your baby if you would like some privacy.
Alternatively, if you would prefer somewhere more comfortable to sit,  there are now sofas in the carpeted area at the back of church.

The One Way Club (Sunday School) has a simple aim:
To help children grow in faith.

As part of this we try to help them understand the bible, have some fun, make some friends and learn about Jesus. It can be noisy at times, but it’s joyful.

We meet on Sunday mornings at 10.30am during term time. We join with everybody in church for the start of the 10.30am service then go to St Mary's Hall for our own activities until about 11.30am.

Boys Brigade and Anchor Association

See the BB and AA website


BB logoThe Boys' Brigade and Anchor Association for Girls have provided for the youth of Radcliffe for the last 60 years. We offer a fun, nurturing, Christian environment for children of all ages, and are committed to aiding youngsters with their mental, emotional and spiritual growth. Our evenings consist of games, craft, learning activities, and a lot of laughter.
We also offer free music tuition in our weekly band sessions, and provide leadership opportunities for our members appropriate to their age.

Life Groups

A Life Group is a place to find belonging.  Church is sometimes referred to as the family of God and it’s in Life Group where these close family relationships are built and we learn together what it means to follow Jesus.  Whether you’ve been a Christian for many years or are exploring questions relating to purpose, meaning, God, the Bible, religion, philosophy – there’ll be a place for you in one of our groups.
