St Mary & St Joseph The Worker Church


St Mary's Church on Park Street, Worksop was designed by the architect Matthew Hadfield and is in the Neo-gothic style. The land was donated by the 12th Duke of Norfolk and the church was built between 1838 and 1840. The roof is a copy of the magnificent hammer-beam roof in Westminster Hall.
The church was consecrated on 24th March 1926, and is now a Grade II listed building. The parish was within the Diocese of Nottingham until the formation of the Diocese of Hallam in 1980. It is part of the Bassetlaw Deanery.
On January 1st 2007 St Mary's joined with the other Worksop parish of St Joseph theWorker to form the new parish of St Mary & St Joseph the Worker.
The church underwent an extensive restoration programme in 2013-14. The church received support from Historic England. The church re-opened on 18th November 2014. The following evening the Church was rededicated by the Right Reverend Ralph Heskett,CSsR, Bishop of Hallam. St Mary's celebrated its 175th anniversary in 2015.
Many Catholic monarchs visited the church when staying as guests of the Dukes of Portland. The most notable was Archduke Franz Ferdinand of Austria shortly before his assassination at Sarajevo in 1914, which led to the start of the Great War.
