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 Messy Church, Fusion, The Gathering, Tots and Teds and WonderZone. 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. Whether you join us at one of our forthcoming services or our other events, we look forward to welcoming you.

We wish to appoint an inspirational Organist/Choir Master/Mistress who will continue to develop the musical life of the parish, lead choir and play for services.

All Saints, Bakewell has a small but enthusiastic adult robed choir which sings at the Parish Choral Eucharist, Evensong, Occasional Offices (weddings and funerals) and other special services.

The choral repertoire is from Tudor to contemporary.  There are other organists who can cover holidays and other occasions to support you.

Plans are in place for the refurbishing of the Brindley and Foster 3 manual fine pipe organ and we hope to do this in 2019/2020.  There is an opportunity to be part of this process.

Remuneration follows the RSCM scale for a Band B church.

An Enhanced DBS will be required.

Bakewell is a Peak District Town with an annual Well Dressing.
