St. Albans's Church, Sneinton, was built as a Church of England parish church on Bond Street in Sneinton, Nottingham. The parish was formed from the parishes of St. Stephen's Church, Sneinton, and St. Matthias' Church, Nottingham.

It was declared redundant by the Diocese of Southwell and Nottingham in 2003 and sold, and is now used as a Parish of the Apostolic Exarchate for Ukrainians, dedicated to Our Lady of Perpetual Succour and St Alban.


The church was designed by George Frederick Bodley and Thomas Garner. The memorial stone was laid on Tuesday 9 March 1886 by Revd. Canon Vernon Wollaston Hutton.[2] It was consecrated on Saturday 23 July 1887 by Bishop George Ridding,[3] and the construction cost was £10,447 (equivalent to £1,050,000 in 2015),[1]. It is built in brick and stone with a wagon roof, and consists of a chancel, nave, aisles, south porch, north west turret with 1 bell. There were seats for 565 people.

The South aisle was lengthened and vestries were erected in 1912 at a cost of £1,811.

It has an east window commemorating Canon Vernon Wollaston Hutton, vicar of Sneinton (St. Stephen's) from 1868 to 1884. The east window cost £200. The screen was the gift of the sons of Thomas and Alice Tew. The Lady Chapel reredos was provided by Mrs. Bowman-Hart, and an altar in St. Michael's chapel is to commemorate Charles Matthews and his son. There is a richly decorated font. The three windows in the side chapel were installed in 1913, 1915 and 1916.
