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

The Collect

God, who in generous mercy sent the Holy Spirit upon your Church in the burning fire of your love:
grant that your people may be fervent in the fellowship of the gospel
that, always abiding in you,
they may be found steadfast in faith and active in service;
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. Amen.

First Reading James 3.1-12

Not many of you should become teachers, my brothers and sisters, for you know that we who teach will be judged with greater strictness. For all of us make many mistakes. Anyone who makes no mistakes in speaking is perfect, able to keep the whole body in check with a bridle. If we put bits into the mouths of horses to make them obey us, we guide their whole bodies. Or look at ships: though they are so large that it takes strong winds to drive them, yet they are guided by a very small rudder wherever the will of the pilot directs. So also the tongue is a small member, yet it boasts of great exploits.

How great a forest is set ablaze by a small fire! And the tongue is a fire. The tongue is placed among our members as a world of iniquity; it stains the whole body, sets on fire the cycle of nature, and is itself set on fire by hell. For every species of beast and bird, of reptile and sea creature, can be tamed and has been tamed by the human species, but no one can tame the tongue - a restless evil, full of deadly poison. With it we bless the Lord and Father, and with it we curse those who are made in the likeness of God. From the same mouth come blessing and cursing. My brothers and sisters, this ought not to be so. Does a spring pour forth from the same opening both fresh and brackish water? Can a fig tree, my brothers and sisters, yield olives, or a grapevine figs? No more can salt water yield fresh. 

Gospel Reading Mark 8.27-38

Jesus went on with his disciples to the villages of Caesarea Philippi; and on the way he asked his disciples, ‘Who do people say that I am?’ And they answered him, ‘John the Baptist; and others, Elijah; and still others, one of the prophets.’ Jesus asked them, ‘But who do you say that I am?’ Peter answered him, ‘You are the Messiah.’ And he sternly ordered them not to tell anyone about him.

Then he began to teach them that the Son of Man must undergo great suffering, and be rejected by the elders, the chief priests, and the scribes, and be killed, and after three days rise again. He said all this quite openly. And Peter took him aside and began to rebuke him. But turning and looking at his disciples, he rebuked Peter and said, ‘Get behind me, Satan! For you are setting your mind not on divine things but on human things.’

He called the crowd with his disciples, and said to them, ‘If any want to become my followers, let them deny themselves and take up their cross and follow me. For those who want to save their life will lose it, and those who lose their life for my sake, and for the sake of the gospel, will save it. For what will it profit them to gain the whole world and forfeit their life? Indeed, what can they give in return for their life? Those who are ashamed of me and of my words in this adulterous and sinful generation, of them the Son of Man will also be ashamed when he comes in the glory of his Father with the holy angels.’ 

Prayer after Communion

Keep, O Lord, your Church, with your perpetual mercy;
and, because without you our human frailty cannot but fall,
keep us ever by your help from all things hurtful,
and lead us to all things profitable to our salvation;
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.
