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.

The Reverend Ralph Lawrence, Rector of All Saints Church, Ashover 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.

Prayer of the Month

Lord God, Holy Spirit, giver of light and life,
at the beginning of this new school year,
for all of us young and old,
banish all that is stale, bored and tired within us.
Open our eyes to behold,
excite our minds to marvel,
and help us to draw closer to you.
Through Jesus Christ our Lord,
