What We Offer

What we offer

Welcome to All Saints' Parish Church, Mackworth, DE22 4NG.

Sadly there are no services in the Parish Church because of the devastating fire on 3rd December, 2020.  This will be the case for the foreseeable future.  However the Church is more than the building and services will continue at our sister churches at Kirk Langley and Mugginton.  For details of those services, please click on the What's on link above and the Calendar link.

Visit this page to keep up to date.  The Parochial Church Council (PCC) is committed to re-building the church so that it will look the same from the outside but the inside will be re-built so that it is more suitable for worship and Community use in the 21st Century.

Since the tragic fire on 3 December 2020, there has been lots of work going on

led by our vicar – Jacqueline Stober and the Parochial Church Council (PCC).

It took almost a year to make sure the remaining walls and structure were safe.  Scaffolding has been erected in advance of the rebuild.

All the charred artefacts were removed and analysed by archaeologists and other experts to see what could be retrieved and made good again – this work is ongoing.

A fantastic sum of almost £40,000 has been raised by fundraisers and donors to go towards the ‘Rebuilding Our Mission Project’ (ROMP).  The PCC is eternally grateful to everybody who has donated – thank you.

The Church rebuild is being paid for mainly by Ecclesiastical Insurance and we have appointed Thomasons (Structural Engineers) as the Project Lead and they are being supported by Buttress Architects.  Improvements, such as an efficient and carbon neutral heating system, will be paid for by donations.

The equivalent of a planning application seeking formal approval to rebuild our Church is to be considered by the Diocese of Derby on 23 May 2022.  The Diocese of Derby is the governing body of Church of England churches in the Derby area.

We are currently into a tendering process to engage an expert builder to hopefully start the rebuilding of the exterior walls and roof hopefully  before the end of the Summer.

We will be consulting with all residents of the Parish in then next couple of months to seek your views on what you might wish the interior of our Church to look like.  The aim being for the Church to be used as a thriving community building for social events and activities, as well as Christian worship.             IT WOULD BE GREAT TO RECEIVE YOUR FEEDBACK.

Meanwhile All Saints Church services are being held at St Michael's Church in Kirk Langley every Sunday at 9.30am.  Please come along, you will be made very welcome!

Hope you find this update helpful.

 

Kindest Regards

About the church

The facilities at the church include a children's play area, disabled toilet facilities and a car park to the front. There are no steps, just be careful on the bumpy path leading in.

The church itself can be traced back to the early 12th century. The present building was largely built in the 14th and 15th centuries, with additions in the 19th century. Derbyshire alabaster features prominently in the interior decoration.
The reredos of alabaster and semi-precious stone is mentioned in many church guide books, as is the r rail and alabaster lectern. The church is set in picturesque, peaceful countryside. It is surrounded by fields on all four sides, yet is only minutes away from the bustle of the city centre. The beauty of the church and its setting makes it an extremely popular venue for weddings.
