Welcome

Bakewell Parish Church is part of the Church of England and the Diocese of Derby, located in a beautiful market town in the heart of the Peak District. You can find opening times and how to find us here. Our church is dedicated to All Saints, and so as we gather together to worship and to serve our community, we are seeking to become God's holy people in the world. We offer refreshment and teaching to all who are trying to follow the way of Jesus Christ with the help of the Holy Spirit.

Our services include a variety of styles, from the traditional to the not-so-traditional. Children are especially welcome at Fusion and  Tots & Teds. We are continuing to develop ways to serve our local community better. You can find out more about our faith, our history and all our activities on this site.

5 July  Fourth Sunday after Trinity

The Collect

O God, the protector of all who trust in you,
without whom nothing is strong, nothing is holy:
increase and multiply upon us your mercy;
that with you as our ruler and guide
we may so pass through things temporal
that we lose not our hold on things eternal;
grant this, heavenly Father,
for our Lord Jesus Christ’s sake, who is alive and reigns with you,
in the unity of the Holy Spirit,
one God, now and for ever. Amen.

First Reading: Romans 7.15-25a

I do not understand my own actions. For I do not do what I want, but I do the very thing I hate. Now if I do what I do not want, I agree that the law is good. But in fact it is no longer I that do it, but sin that dwells within me. For I know that nothing good dwells within me, that is, in my flesh. I can will what is right, but I cannot do it. For I do not do the good I want, but the evil I do not want is what I do. Now if I do what I do not want, it is no longer I that do it, but sin that dwells within me.

So I find it to be a law that when I want to do what is good, evil lies close at hand. For I delight in the law of God in my inmost self, but I see in my members another law at war with the law of my mind, making me captive to the law of sin that dwells in my members. Wretched man that I am! Who will rescue me from this body of death? Thanks be to God through Jesus Christ our Lord! 

Gospel Reading: Matthew 11.16-19,25-30

At that time Jesus said, ‘To what will I compare this generation? It is like children sitting in the market-places and calling to one another,  “We played the flute for you, and you did not dance; we wailed, and you did not mourn.” For John came neither eating nor drinking, and they say, “He has a demon”; the Son of Man came eating and drinking, and they say, “Look, a glutton and a drunkard, a friend of tax-collectors and sinners!” Yet wisdom is vindicated by her deeds.

I thank you, Father, Lord of heaven and earth, because you have hidden these things from the wise and the intelligent and have revealed them to infants; yes, Father, for such was your gracious will. All things have been handed over to me by my Father; and no one knows the Son except the Father, and no one knows the Father except the Son and anyone to whom the Son chooses to reveal him. 

Come to me, all you that are weary and are carrying heavy burdens, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you, and learn from me; for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.’

Protocols for the Benefice during the current Covid 19 Crisis

The work of the Church

 The Government Guidelines of Monday 23rd March to restrict public movement and social interaction as part of the drive to keep people safe included the need to close and lock all of our church buildings and for there to be no access during the current crisis.

 Prayer is the primary work of the church, and whilst we cannot offer it in a church setting, we can continue to do so in our homes. Resources to help you interact with Morning and Evening Prayer can be found on the Church of England website at: www.churchofengland.org Look up Coronavirus Liturgy and Prayer Resources.

 Please pray daily (or more often!) for our five churches and parishes, those in need and those caring for them.  With public worship suspended and access to church buildings impossible, it is so important that we feel drawn together in the prayers we can offer. It doesn’t matter if you don’t feel articulate in praying or what particular style you may have- prayer unites, reassures, comforts, strengthens and offers our thoughts and intentions to God who is there in our midst.

 The clergy will be say in their respective homes every day at 9 am and 4 pm their prayers centred around the Daily Office. Why not try at one of those times to offer your prayer, thoughts and feelings to God and know that we are held together in love and unity?

 Funerals: 

Under Government Guideline, funerals are permitted in crematoriums and at the graveside for immediate family members only.                NO funeral services are permitted in church. 

 We will offer a large memorial/thanksgiving service in church once all of the pandemic restrictions have been lifted.  

Please now go to the 'Life Events' then 'Funerals' page on this website for further information and resources, or use the link here:  Funerals

 Weddings: 

As of March 23rd under the Government regulations, all weddings in the UK are suspended until further notice.  If you are looking to enquire/arrange a wedding in church for later in 2020 or 2021 or beyond, please contact Canon Tony.

Pastoral care:

We are all urged not to leave our homes unless it is for essential things, such as collecting necessary food or medical supplies. Therefore, no visiting of people in their homes is allowed as part of our pastoral care for one another. You may have volunteered to offer practical help to people (delivering food, shopping), but we are not recommending, because of Safeguarding, (the need for a DBS and attending the appropriate Safeguarding training), for people to do anything on behalf of the church and if you are possibly going to be involved with any community distribution, then it will be with the strictest health guards and with the necessary Safeguarding checks. 

The Clergy Team, under the coordination of Revd Brenda Jackson, are undertaking to maintain contact with members of the church community within the benefice who have given their permission for this to happen under GDPR.

The Clergy Team will coordinate the phoning of people weekly, moving to fortnightly for those who are coping, and escalating to a central place for people who need extra telephone care.  A central list of names, emails and telephone numbers will be kept on the Church’s GDPR-compliant database. Instructions on how to access this database will be sent out to all wardens and pastoral team volunteers asap.

Nobody will be doing the official contacting of people without the endorsement of Revd Brenda and those being contacted will have the opportunity to opt out under the GDPR guidelines. 

Communications:

Our only form of communication will be by phone and possibly by email. The Pastoral Care Team will keep in touch with isolated people and others after liaising with Revd Brenda.

We are trying to prevent anybody being missed, as well as people not receiving multiple calls. The local churches want to support the work of other agencies and groups caring for people in the community and so we will be collecting all sorts of contact details to resource particular needs that we may become aware of, and for community group activity to be a source for our prayer.

We may want to consider offering to hold next of kin details for parishioners who live alone, but we will make sure any such personal information is stored securely and we have the individual’s permission to have these details  in keeping with General Data Protection regulations. 

The clergy will organise a weekly recording of a Benefice Service with homily which will be broadcast live on the Bakewell All Saints Facebook page at 10.30 every Sunday, the video will also be available to view on this website on the 'Worship' page under 'Coming Services'.

Finances: 

Although naturally our church finances are the last thing on our minds, we need to remember that although there is no public worship our giving needs to continue if we are to continue the work of the church. Although running expenses will diminish, there are still overheads we have to cover: The Diocesan Common Fund; the covering of essential working expenses; paying utility bills, insurance etc. It would be dreadful if we felt we had to cut our costs in order to keep a healthy bank balance.

And finally:

Please do not lose hope. Find ways to remain positive. In loving and caring for your neighbour and those who are doing the caring, remember to love yourself. 

In these unprecedented times, as we learn how to sing the Lord’s song in this strange land, I pray you know His peace

Lord Jesus Christ,
you taught us to love our neighbour,
and to care for those in need
as if we were caring for you.
In this time of anxiety, give us strength
to comfort the fearful, to tend the sick,
and to assure the isolated
of our love, and your love,
for your name’s sake. Amen. 

God of compassion,
be close to those who are ill, afraid or in isolation.
In their loneliness, be their consolation;
in their anxiety, be their hope;
in their darkness, be their light;
through him who suffered alone on the cross,
but reigns with you in glory,Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

Canon Tony 

 

 

 News from the Buxton Food Bank:  

Will the need for foodbanks increase? 

More people will lose jobs and need to claim benefits. They have to wait for at least five weeks for their first payment. They can take out a loan during those five weeks but this gets deducted from their next 11 monthly payments.  Many High Peak businesses will be affected because the crisis is expected to hit the tourism market particularly hard. The government is supporting businesses to keep people in work, but we have not heard of additional plans to support people who lose jobs and need to claim benefits, especially self-employed people.

When children who get free school meals are off school, their family will have extra expenses.

How do people access High Peak Foodbank? 

From 17th March to refer to the foodbank ring 07811 684299. An appointment time will be given.

To receive a food parcel, clients must have no money or food and be taking steps to resolve their situation. Self-isolation alone is not a reason to need the foodbank.

What can I do? 

There are several things you can do to help:

ï       Donate online at highpeakfoodbank.co.uk to help us cover core costs to help meet the emergency needs of some of the most vulnerable in our communities. 

ï       At some point we may ask for increased food donations. Please be prepared to donate if you can.

Donations

You can donate food items in the Co-op supermarket, Methodist and Anglican Churches in Bakewell, and Bakewell Library. 

At the moment we need: UHT milk, tinned meat, pasta sauce and plastic bags.

Donate online at www.highpeakfoodbank.co.uk or post cheques made payable to High Peak Foodbank to URC, Hardwick Square East, Buxton SK17 6PT.

PCR2 

As part of the process of rooting out and dealing with all cases of abuse, past and present in the C of E, the Church is undertaking a review, Past Cases Review 2, into all records and reports held by Parishes, to make sure that all cases have been properly dealt with. For some churches this will be a longer process than for others.

Individual survivors who wish to make representations to the PCR2 process in the Derby Diocese or who need to come forward with information or make any disclosures regarding church related abuse are encouraged to make direct contact with the Safeguarding Team 01332 388678

However, recognising that this may not feel safe for those with experience of abuse from within the church, a dedicated national helpline - 0800 80 20 20 - operated independently from the church, by the NSPCC, was set up in September 2019 and remains available.

Survivors and victims can use the helpline to provide information or to raise concerns regarding abuse within the Church of England context; whether they are reporting issues relating to children, adults or seeking to whistle blow about poor safeguarding practice. 

Survivors were not invited to contribute to the 2007-2009 PCR and the Church has wanted to ensure a different, trauma informed approach is taken by PCR2.  Listening to survivor voices has helped to shape how this review will be conducted. 

We hope that this will be part of ensuring that the Church is a safe environment for all.
