  • St Anne’s Church is open but we are doing church differently.

    Following government guidance on coronavirus, the Archbishops of York and Canterbury have issued advice that public worship is suspended until further notice. I am very sorry as this means that there are no services in St. Anne’s church for the time being.

    The church will, however, be open during the day for private prayer and reflection (please keep to the social distancing guidelines). Do use the church as a place of sanctuary.

    There will be prayers said in church at 9am Monday to Friday, so if you would like specific prayers then please write in the prayer request book near the entrance of the church.

    We are hoping to livestream a service on Sunday mornings at 9.45am so please visit our Facebook page @st.annesbaslow

    The Archbishops are calling us to an ecumenical day of prayer on Sunday 22nd March, Mothering Sunday. They ask that whatever we are doing this Sunday we join in prayer for this country and place a lighted candle in a window at 7pm - a sign of solidarity and hope in the light of Christ that can never be extinguished.

    We are working on ways to keep connected and support each other.

    We are also working with others in the village to support those who are self-isolated or struggling.

    We will keep you updated as things progress however if you have any questions please ring me on 07947092951 or the church office 01433 630930 or church secretary, Bill Campbell 07770741470

    A prayer:

    Lord we pray that through these troubling times might find in you our help and refuge.
    Help us to build a kinder world where we are more connected with one another. Amen

    Revd Mike Gilbert, Rector of Baslow

  • Parish Safeguarding 

    The Church of England is called to share the good news of God’s salvation through Jesus Christ. The life of our communities and institutions is integral to how we address this task. The good news speaks of welcome for all, with a particular regard for those who are most vulnerable, into a community where the value and dignity of every human being is affirmed and those in positions of responsibility and authority are truly trustworthy. Being faithful to our call to share the gospel therefore compels us to take with the utmost seriousness the challenge of preventing abuse from happening and responding well where it has.’  HANDBOOK


    PCR2

    Protocols and practice guidance for the Church of England’s Past Cases Review 2, (PCR2) have been published and are on the National Church of England Website

    Individual survivors who wish to make representations to the PCR2 process in the Derby Diocese or who need to come forward with information or make any disclosures regarding church related abuse are encouraged to make direct contact with the Safeguarding Team 01332 388678

    However, recognising that this may not feel safe for those with experience of abuse from within the church, a dedicated national helpline - 0800 80 20 20 - operated independently from the church, by the NSPCC, was set up in September 2019 and remains available.

    Survivors were not invited to contribute to the 2007-2009 PCR and the Church has wanted to ensure a different, trauma informed approach is taken by PCR2. Listening to survivor voices has helped to shape how this review will be conducted. 

    We are now at the beginning of the PCR2 process, this is an independent review to look at all the safeguarding files, historic and current for both adults and children, including all Church officers. The review aims to ensure that wherever concerns have been raised that the cases have been handled appropriately.

    The National Church has given a commitment to undertake a new Past Cases Review (PCR2) which will not only look at all types of harm, both to children and or adults, but will probe much deeper in records or concerns held in parishes, some of which may not have been reported to the DSA. Your vicar (or church warden if in Interregnum) will now have received a letter from +Libby outlining what is required to enable this significant piece of work to be completed. We need to submit the final report to the National Safeguarding team by the end of December 2020. We will be in touch directly with PSOs’ to give the detail of the next step, but it may be helpful if you identify where any parish records are held so that there is less work to do when we ask you for the details. The timescale for responding to PCR2 in the Diocese of Derby is by 31st March 2020.
