About Us

Our Mission

In order to fulfill that Mission we commit ourselves to:

  • Maintain a daily pattern of corporate prayer and worship, giving glory to God and holding before him the needs of the church and the world, and particularly of the diocese of Derby, the city of Derby and the county of Derbyshire 

  • Be a focus for the Bishop’s ministry, a resource to him and a place where prayer is offered for him 

  • Preach the gospel of Christ and nurture Christian leadership, in collaboration with the churches and traditions and with sensitivity to other faiths 

  • Extend hospitality to pilgrims and visitors of every kind 

  • Demonstrate the concern of Christ for the poor 

  • Engage with the city and the county, with corporate life and institutions, in the complexities of contemporary society and culture, and explore spiritual values with all people of goodwill 

  • Share as the mother church, with the parishes of the diocese in every aspect of the Church’s vocation
