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

Usual service patterns are suspended owing to the Covid pandemic, however, please see below the red section below for up to date details of current services.

 Thank You

 

You may have noticed the artwork that has appeared in church recently. It has been produced to glorify God and raise Church funds for our organ. Hopefully it will also bring pleasure to viewers!
 
The work is basically produced by woodblock technique. It is meant to be a contemplative piece. Twelve golden fish sparkle and shine compared to the rest of the shoal. Also, the fish is a potent symbol for Christians, so a lot to contemplate. When you sit in the church ‘listen’ to the surroundings, perhaps you might hear the centuries of prayers seeping out of the walls. The church as a place of sanctuary is worth protecting. The art work and the Church itself is worth highlighting to the greater public. Please come along and soak up the atmosphere, then recommend the experience to others, the more we can get into the church to benefit from the experience then the better for the Church.

Daily Hope – 0800 804 8044 The free phone line of hymns, reflections and prayers

The Archbishop of Canterbury has launched a free national phone line as a simple new way to
bring worship and prayer into people’s homes while church buildings are closed. This is
particularly aimed at the more than 3 million people (many over the age of 75yrs) who do not have
regular access to internet services.
Daily Hope offers music, prayers and reflections as well as full worship services from the Church
of England at the end of a telephone line – 24 hours a day.
Please pass this information on to anyone who may benefit.

 

Services 

Thursdays at 9.30am - Eucharist

Sundays:-

9.45am  - Livestream Reflection and Prayer via Facebook Bakewell All Saints.                                                                                   Available to view later in the day here on the website  : Coming Services

10.30am  - Benefice Eucharist at All Saints 

  Please can you arrive no earlier than 10.20 for the 10.30 service  as  Canon Tony will be broadcasting the live online service from church between 9.45 and 10.20. 

Following the 19 July Government Statement the mandatory regulations for social distancing and mask wearing were abolished and we have moved into a period of caution and taking steps forward that are sensitive and yet enable us to reflect on what we need to do to feel safe, yet hopeful. 

Therefore at All Saints, we would still encourage you to sanitise your hands as you enter church. We would recommend that you wear a face covering when you move around the church building if you feel that this is the right thing for you.

For Services we have adopted a Traffic Light System.  RED AREA PEWS are where social distancing of two metres is observed and mask wearing during Services (your service books will be the pew already). AMBER AREA PEWS are where there is no social distancing and mask wearing is voluntary. The Sharing of the Peace would not be by touch with another person. You will collect your service books as you enter church. It is possible to collect a card on entry that says you would prefer that somebody does not sit next to you. GREEN AREA PEWS are where there is no distancing, mask wearing and people are happy to share the peace by touch. These areas are clearly marked and we ask that you respect each of the sections once you have chosen your area. 

During the distribution of Holy Communion the Sidespeople will guide you. You have a choice as to whether you wish to wear a mask or not as you move. There is an option, if you wanted to, to receive the consecrated wine either by intincting (dipping the tip of the consecrated host into the chalice, whilst not touching the wine with your finger) or receiving the chalice (but not touching the chalice). If you wish to receive in one kind, then please feel under no pressure to not do so and simply return to your seat after receiving the host. 

Leaving Church- please leave church by whichever door you would prefer, remembering there is a back door for entry and exit which has no steps.

The church toilets are open and we ask you to wipe the seat after use.

Church is open for visitors and prayer

Weddings, Funerals and Baptisms- we are delighted that we can once again welcome parties of any number according to the capacity of the church building (which is 200+ for All Saints) and the Parish Clergy will be able to advise you on this. The wearing of face coverings is optional and we would ask those arranging Services to be mindful during the next two or three months of vulnerable or anxious guests and to be prepared to ensure that their anxieties are met through arranging seating and reassuring them that they can wear masks and be seated away from other people if necessary.

 

Every Wednesday morning                                                                                                                                                                            All Saints Wednesday Women’s Home Group.  Please contact Jane Proctor 01629 258911 for Zoom details

26 September Seventeenth Sunday after Trinity

The Collect 

Almighty God, you have made us for yourself,
and our hearts are restless till they find their rest in you:
pour your love into our hearts and draw us to yourself,
and so bring us at last to your heavenly city
where we shall see you face to face;
through Jesus Christ your Son our Lord,
who is alive and reigns with you, in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God, now and for ever.

First Reading James 5.13-20

Are any among you suffering? They should pray. Are any cheerful? They should sing songs of praise. Are any among you sick? They should call for the elders of the church and have them pray over them, anointing them with oil in the name of the Lord. The prayer of faith will save the sick, and the Lord will raise them up; and anyone who has committed sins will be forgiven. Therefore confess your sins to one another, and pray for one another, so that you may be healed. The prayer of the righteous is powerful and effective. Elijah was a human being like us, and he prayed fervently that it might not rain, and for three years and six months it did not rain on the earth. Then he prayed again, and the heaven gave rain and the earth yielded its harvest.

My brothers and sisters, if anyone among you wanders from the truth and is brought back by another, you should know that whoever brings back a sinner from wandering will save the sinner's soul from death and will cover a multitude of sins. 

Gospel Reading Mark 9.38-50

John said to Jesus, ‘Teacher, we saw someone casting out demons in your name, and we tried to stop him, because he was not following us.’ But Jesus said, ‘Do not stop him; for no one who does a deed of power in my name will be able soon afterwards to speak evil of me. 40Whoever is not against us is for us. For truly I tell you, whoever gives you a cup of water to drink because you bear the name of Christ will by no means lose the reward.

If any of you put a stumbling-block before one of these little ones who believe in me, it would be better for you if a great millstone were hung around your neck and you were thrown into the sea. If your hand causes you to stumble, cut it off; it is better for you to enter life maimed than to have two hands and to go to hell, to the unquenchable fire. And if your foot causes you to stumble, cut it off; it is better for you to enter life lame than to have two feet and to be thrown into hell. And if your eye causes you to stumble, tear it out; it is better for you to enter the kingdom of God with one eye than to have two eyes and to be thrown into hell, where their worm never dies, and the fire is never quenched.

For everyone will be salted with fire. Salt is good; but if salt has lost its saltiness, how can you season it? Have salt in yourselves, and be at peace with one another.’ 

Prayer after Communion

Lord, we pray that your grace may always precede and follow us,
and make us continually to be given to all good works; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

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.

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.
