Coronavirus – Update 23rd February 2021

The Church continues to be alive and active, but our buildings must close

Although national guidance permits us to continue our worship in church, the PCCs for Elmton with Creswell and Whitwell with Steetley have made the difficult decision to close our buildings for public worship until further notice.  It feels wise to be cautious now especially with this new strain of the virus circulating.  Please check for further updates.
Our worship of God and our care for each other continue but cannot be done in the church building.
We are currently offering a Compline (Night Prayer) service via Zoom on Friday evenings at 7.30pm.  Please click here for further details.
In addition, a range of prayer and worship resources can be found on the Church of England and Derby Diocese websites.
