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 lie within the Church of England Diocese of Derby.

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.

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.

Starting Tuesday 20th February 2024 7pm for 7:15pm

The Bassett Rooms, Church Street Ashover

With coffee and cakes, and videos to start discussions on our Christian faith.

All questions are good questions and all are welcome.

Any questions please ask Sarah / Peter, and it would be helpful to know if you can come, but you don't have to book.

Our Aim - To Love our Neighbour

If you are in need of practical or emotional support, maybe we can help. Ashover Church has a team ready to listen to you. Love Your Neighbour

Our Lifeline - Prayer

A small group of church members pray regularly in confidence for special concerns and for the community; if you would like prayer for yourself or a situation, please telephone a member of the Ministry Team.

All are welcome to join us on the 2nd Sunday of each month in the Bassett Rooms at 6pm for Sunday @6

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

Springtime Prayer

There is real wisdom, Lord, in the adage

'It is always Springtime in the heart that loves God.'

Springtime is a season of optimism and hope,

and the Christian lives a faith centred on hope.

Winter, with its cold and dark days has gone,

just as Good Friday has passed to Easter and beyond.

We live a resurrection life

reflected in the new life springing up around us.

Thank you, Lord, for the hope that you bring,

the renewal that you bring,

both to this world and to our hearts and lives.

Church of England daily prayer
