On 1st July 2007 the parishes of St Mary the Virgin and St Peter & All Saints were united, bringing together three distinctive church communities in the centre of Nottingham. The new website of the united parish at nottinghamchurches.org is developing rapidly but there is still a lot of material on this site that has not yet been incorporated in the new, and it remains here as an archive.
