On April 1st, 2017, St. Bartholomew’s and St. Luke’s parishes became a united benefice. The unification of both churches is an excellent opportunity for Churches of the Anglo-Catholic tradition to demonstrate the unity of Christ’s love in and among our individual and collective communities.
It is with this in mind that we are presently considering how best our mission in these areas can develop. Our mission does not comprise of secularisation, but rather one that centres on and around our communities and their particular needs.
As individual parishes, we are open to new and exciting ideas, and indeed any recommendation of how we may help the readers of this page grow in God’s grace.
We are currently exploring ways in which we can reach out and engage with those members of our community for whom life is sometimes difficult and challenging.
Asylum Seekers and Refugees.
The Homeless and the unemployed.
Those marginalised by society.
We are also developing different ways of being a church.
One of these is Messy Church which is held on the second Saturday of the
month at 10.30am in St. Bartholomew's Church Centre.
We have a 'Drop-in' Coffee Morning in St Luke’s church on a Monday Morning from 10.00am until noon at St Luke's Parish Church Parliament Street. Derby
