    Eyam Church is doing things differently

    Due to the Coronavirus the Church of England has asked for all church services to be discontinued for the time being.

    However, the Church is so much more than buildings and services. It is about love and faith and community. So here are our plans at Eyam Parish Church.

    The building is now completely closed. We are making arrangements to continue the life of the church using technology, amongst other things.

    Services

    Sunday 7th June will see a 9.00am Early Church event and an 11.00am Morning Service on the Eyam Church facebook - click on the link on this page. 

    We will be having Evensong for all our Churches every fortnight and the next ones in June are on 14th and 28th.  Log into St Anne's Church, Baslow to find the link.

    If you want to join a Zoom coffee group after the 11.00am service please contact the Rector 0794 7092951

    Alpha Course

    An online Alpha Course will be available from Tuesday 26th May at 8.00pm. You and your friends are very welcome. Contact rector@eyamchurch.org, or send us a message through the contact us page on the website.

     

    Growth Groups

    There are growth groups that meet online to encourage one another. Please tell us if you would like to be part of one of these.

    Serving the village

    We are here to serve the village so we will be joining in with other village initiatives but if you would like to specifically talk to me about anything my phone number is 0794 7092951 or the office 01433 630930.

    The Church exists to spread love and, though these restrictions are feeling difficult and burdensome, they can’t stop love which knows no barriers.

  • 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.

    If you have any concerns over any safeguarding matter,  please contact the Parish Safeguarding Officer Adam Innes on 07510363145 or member of the clergy, Reverend Mike Gilbert on 07947092951 or the Diocesan Safeguarding Team on 01332388678.

    During the lockdown period please contact the interim PSO Helen Gilbert 07786515557

  • 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.
