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. Whether you join us at one of our forthcoming services or our other events, we look forward to welcoming you.

Church of England Coronavirus (COVID-19) guidance for parishes

Updated advice from Public Health England on Monday 17th February 2020

Whilst in places of worship there is no need to avoid other worshipers who are well, take usual infection prevention precautions including washing your hands with soap and water or using a hand sanitiser (containing at least 60% alcohol) after using the toilet facilities; before eating food or snacks or if you are in close contact with someone who is unwell.

If you have a cough or are sneezing as a result of a cold please refrain from handshaking during The Peace and please receive just the Consecrated Host at Holy Communion.

At present, there is no Government advice that suggests the use of the Common Cup should be suspended.

Intinction (dipping the host into the chalice) is not recommended (even by celebrants or chalice-administrators) as this represents an infection transmission route.

Everyone can help to reduce the spread of viruses in the following ways:

  • Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. Use an alcohol-based hand sanitiser that contains at least 60% alcohol if soap and water are not available. This is particularly important after taking public transport. 
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands.
  • If you feel unwell, stay at home, do not attend work or school.
  • Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in a bin
  • Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces in the home and work environment.











SAFEGUARDING link https://derby.anglican.org/en/safeguarding.html



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.
