Welcome to our website
Welcome to our website and to our four churches set in the rolling farmland of the Amber Valley in Derbyshire.
The parishes of our four churches are a Mission and Ministry Area within the Diocese of Derby and the Church of England.
We believe we can live out our Christian faith by "working and playing together, with God, for people" - this is the motto of the Amber Churches.
To learn more about us and our churches, have a look round our website - and we hope we will be able to greet you soon in person.
The Revd Ralph Lawrence
Our Faith - Christianity
Maybe you have questions about what it means to be a Christian - what we believe, how a man called Jesus who died 2000 years ago can be saviour and a friend. Please click on this link to learn more about Christianity.
Our Lifeline - Prayer
A small group of church members meet regularly in Ashover to pray in confidence for special concerns and for the community; if you would like prayer for yourself or a situation, please telephone the Rector. If you would like to see how Christians talk to God through prayer, or get hints on how to set about this, please click on this link.
Prayer of the Month
As we await the coming of the Prince of Peace
We pray for peace in this world;
For statesmen and rulers
that they may have wisdom to know what is right
and courage to do it;
For all who work to improve international relations
that they may find the true way to reconcile people
of difference, race, colour and creed;
And for men and women the world over
that they may have justice and freedom
and live in security and peace.
We ask this in the name of Jesus, Prince of Peace,
