    Flour4FoodBanks

    St. Anne's Church is delighted to launch a major new initiative, to bring quality flour (all types - plain, self raising, strong, granary, wholemeal, rye, gluten free and yeast) to Baslow and the surrounding areas.

    Working with St. Mary's Church, Sheffield, our flour sales will also help supply essential food parcels to families across Sheffield during the Covid-19 crisis.

    So if you use flour, please support us! Simply click here to order your flour and yeast 

    All prices are 'at cost' and we hope you may feel able to add a donation to your order. Your donation will both help fund food parcels for those in need and support the work of St. Anne's Church here in Baslow.

    Then, collect your flour on Fridays from our church rooms between 11.00am and 2.30pm or on Saturdays from 9.30am to 11.00am - where our socially distancing volunteers will hand you your order in the car park.

  • From the Rector

    “I was glad when they said let us go to the house of the Lord” 

    These words from Psalm 122 came to mind when I heard the news that we are now allowed back in church. 

    Of course, as Peter reminds us in his first letter, the church is you and me, the living stones built on Christ as his cornerstone.

    We now have the opportunity from this Sunday for public worship to start. However, there are restrictions, we will have to stay socially distanced and we are not allowed to sing. We also have an online service, which has limitations but has been an encouragement and a mission tool. It is therefore not a straight forward decision as to what we should do. 

    Therefore, as the next step, we will continue with the 9.45am Sunday online services but also Graham will lead an evening service each Wednesday at 7pm in church. We can fit you all in even if you are all sitting 2 metres apart. It will be lovely to see you in the flesh!

    On a sadder note many will have heard of the deaths of Ruth Evans and Kay Schurer, both were St. Anne’s stalwarts. Kay’s funeral will be at St. Anne’s on July 9th at 10.30am but because of the present situation it will be only family in church. However the hearse will drive through the village so if you would like to come out and pay your respects please ask June Powell as to the route and timing.

    Don’t forget your flour which perhaps you could pick up whilst going to the pop up market this Saturday 10am-11.30am.

    God bless

    Mike

  • 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.

    Safeguarding Concerns

    If you have any concerns over any safeguarding matter, please contact the Parish Safeguarding Officer, Richard Nicholson on 01246 583023 or Member of the Clergy, Revd Mike Gilbert on 07947092951 or the Diocesan Safeguarding Team on 01332 388678.
