Services in Church have now resumed but there are changes to the worship pattern:-
Thursdays at 9.30am - Eucharist
9.00am - Livestream Reflection and Prayer via Facebook Bakewell All Saints. This will uploaded later to this website : Coming Services
10.30am - Benefice Eucharist at All Saints (except 30 January - 10am Benefice Service at Over Haddon)

Regarding Covid, 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 by intincting (dipping the tip of the consecrated host into the chalice, whilst not touching the wine with your finger). 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.
Refreshments - These are served after the service in the Newark and all are welcome.
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 daily for visitors and prayer: 9.00am - 4.00pm
Church on the Phone- Morning Worship at Home. Tuesdays at 10.00am.
Usual Sunday Services suspended owing to the Covid pandemic
The Main Sunday morning service is at 11.00am. This service is usually Holy Communion, with a sung musical setting, hymns and a sermon, and is normally just over an hour in length.
The First Sunday in the month at 8.00am is early morning Holy Communion and uses traditional language. There is a sermon but no hymns, and the service takes about 45 minutes.
The Third Sunday in the month at 11.00am is 'Fusion' A more contemporary, user-friendly, act of worship using a screen that enables us to think and reflect on a theme as we offer our worship to God. The service will sometimes include the opportunity to receive Holy Communion. Fusion usually lasts between 45minutes - one hour.
Breakfast Church is in the Newark every Second Sunday of the month at 9.15am. Growing out of Messy Church at All Saints from January 2020 Breakfast Church has been launched. Informal family/children's craft activities, light breakfast, informal worship and fellowship. An opportunity to explore and experience God and sharing friendship with him. Breakfast Church lasts for 45 minutes.
The Sunday Evensong at 6.00pm is led by the choir and uses traditional language. There are hymns and a sermon, and the service lasts just under an hour.
There is a mid-week service of Holy Communion every Thursday at 9.30am, which lasts about 30 minutes.
Morning Prayer is usually said at 9.00am, Monday to Thursday and Saturday.
Dawn and dusk, every day.
Taking attention beyond words - deep, comtemplative prayer, also known as Meditation or Prayer of the Heart, has long proved an effective way to that spiritual wholeness, which fulfils the deficiencies of life without.
In the world but not of it - by practice transcending talk and thought, Spirit is found to be constantly present - the pure perfection from which all proceeds.
Meditation's low profile relates to Mary, who simply held direction while Martha lost herself in worldly cares (Lk.10,38-42).
Interest / participation is always welcome.
