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 Messy Church, Fusion, The Gathering 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.

ASHES TO GO

Ash Wednesday 6 March 11am-12.45 pm

 Last year All Saints participated in "Ashes to Go", a practice whereby the invitation to share in the beginning of Lent is taken outside the church walls. People in the Town  are offered the chance to receive the cross of ash, to be prayed for and to be given a prayer card. We take ashes to the street corner because the reminder of need, humility, and healing shouldn’t be confined to a church building.  We probably need it more when we are in the middle of our daily business! The ashes we receive are to remind us throughout the day of our need for God, and of God’s call to us.

As an expression of the All Saints mission to those beyond our congregation, Canon Tony, Pat, Dave Ives-Smith and anyone who would like to assist will be offering this ministry between 11 am and 12.45 pm and in Bakewell on Ash Wednesday.

 LENT 2019 at All Saints

An opportunity for spiritual refreshment, reflection and renewing our relationship with God, through Jesus.

 Lent Study Group- `From now on' based on the film The Greatest Showman, this five-week course offers discussion points, biblical reflections and prayers based on short excerpts from the film. The themes explored are: what liberation and hope might look like for an `outsider in the world'; exploring how faith can bring hope and purpose; what is the way of salvation?; the temptations of false fulfilment; how redemption is found.  Wednesday lunchtimes from 12 noon to 1.15 pm with a soup lunch in The Newark- 13th, 20th, 27th March; 3rd and 10th April.
