Services and Rotas

Sundays, Midweek and Monthly


Since the summer of 2020 we have been opening up our churches for Sunday Worship and we will also continue to run our telephone service alongside.  However, for this latest lockdown period (Jan/Feb/March 2021) most of our church services have been suspended, with the exception of Kniveton. Details of what we are doing are on the March Sunday rota.

From Easter Sunday 2021 we shall be having a ‘phased return’ to holding services in our church buildings.  You will find the details on the April rota.  From May onwards, we are hoping to operate a pattern of services as ‘normal’ as possible.

From May 2021, the Telephone service will happen in the 1st and 3rd Sundays of the month at 4pm.  The services of Night Prayer on Facebook will continue as before on Wednesdays and Sundays at 8.45pm.

Our Midweek services in church are now happening again – details below:

Midweek Services


Wednesdays:   Evening Prayer – 4.30pm at Bradley Church
This is a short, said service. We use liturgy from both the CofE and the Iona Community

Thursdays:   Morning Prayer – 8.00am at Hognaston Church
This is a short, said service. We use liturgy from both the CofE and the Iona Community


(The information lower down the page shows what we used to do before restrictions)



You are very welcome to attend any of our services. Most months there are a variety of styles of worship.

If there isn’t a service in your parish on a particular Sunday, we would encourage you to come and join us at a service in one of our other parishes.

Children are welcome at all our services, but those marked as All Age Worship on the rota are specifically intended to be child friendly.

The 1662 services use the traditional language of the Book of Common Prayer (BCP) and provide a contrast to our modern language services.



Monthly: [currently on hold]

Home Communion: 2nd Wednesday of the month.  10.15am.  (see Calendar on home page for venue)

Mid Day Med:  A half hour of Christian meditation/contemplative prayer.  Hognaston Church on the 3rd Tuesday of the month at 12.00pm. Followed by ‘Lite Bites’ in the village hall.

The above meetings are open to all.  We meet during school term time.

All Age Sunday Services

We don’t currently hold any All Age services, however we do hold regular Messy Church sessions instead.  These are held roughly every other month on a Saturday afternoon.  Click here for more info.

If you would like any more information about these services – please contact Rev Phil Michell.
