Explore the Churches

We are the Churches of Sherwood Forest: All Saints in Clipstone, St. Mary’s in Edwinstowe and St. John the Evangelist in Perlethorpe. 

Our churches have been working in partnership for many years, and in 2011 we came together to share a priest and lay ministry team. 

“I appeal to you, brothers and sisters, in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that all of you agree with one another in what you say and that there be no divisions among you, but that you be perfectly united in mind and thought.” – 1 Corinthians 1:10

Join us in worship, and remember that God loves each and every one of us. Come support and join our worshipping community as we seek to place love at the heart of life.
