St Theresa's

The Catholic Community of St Teresa’s in Warsop welcomes you to our church.

The Eucharistic community is active and vibrant and is currently in the process of refurbishing in order to make the church more welcoming.

The church is situated at the top of the High Street, where the old High Street meets the main road at the point where the millennium cross stands. The church and hall are at different levels, with the church upstairs, and the hall underneath. The church is entered from the car park, mostly using the door to the right hand side. The hall has a separate access downstairs.

The church was built in 1974 and celebrates its 40th Anniversary on 8th February at 12 noon when Bishop Malcolm will concelebrate Mass and we would be delighted to welcome you to this event.

We are looking for old photographs and memorabilia. If you were baptised, confirmed, or married in this church, or you were part of the worshipping community at any time, please send photographs if you have them. You may email to saintteresascatholicchurch@gmail.com

Mass is celebrated at 10.45 am every Sunday, with coffee in the hall downstairs afterwards.
N.B. Please check our Service Schedule for services on other days .

History of St Theresa’s Church

The Catholic community in Warsop was formed as part of the St Joseph’s Parish, Shirebrook.

Mass was celebrated in a local pub and then in a hut close to where St Theresa’s Church now stands.

Fr. Joseph Henry was responsible for building the church and, on 20th February 1974, the Church of St Theresa’s was solemnly consecrated by Bishop Edward Ellis.

St Theresa’s was established as a separate parish in 1976, under the care of Fr. O’Hanlon and then Fr. McGovern. Under Fr. Birks, St Theresa’s parish was joined with St Charles Borromeo in Mansfield Woodhouse. After the death of Fr. Birks, the church of St Charles Borromeo was closed and ┬áSt Theresa’s parish joined with St Joseph’s Shirebrook and St Bernadette’s Bolsover under the care of Fr. McSpirit. The death of Fr. Birks left the Presbytery vacant. The Presentation Sisters moved into the Presbytery and became a vital part of the pastoral team and forming a group of lay Presentation Associates. On the retirement of Fr. McSpirit, Fr. Frank Carvill was appointed PP to the three churches. In 2004, St Theresa’s joined with St Philip Neri’s in Mansfield under the care of Fr. Philip Ziomek. In 2011, Bishop Malcolm re-aligned St Theresa’s with St Joseph’s and St Bernadette’s under the care of Canon Jonathan Cotton.
