Dronfield Places of Worship
Dronfield is home to a number of places of worship that support various denominations and religious beliefs.
CHURCHES TOGETHER IN DRONFIELD AND DISTRICT
is an organisation of the sixteen Christian Churches in the town and surrounding area. Over a number of years we have worked more closely together in prayer, fellowship, service and witness to the community. We value our different traditions and the richness of our Christian heritage. At the same time we are held together in our common faith in God, whose love for us all is demonstrated more fully in the life, death and resurrection of His Son Jesus Christ.
Working together, the churches are keen to be actively involved in the community and to provide a service to all its people. In part we do this through CHRISTIAN CARE and through our CHRISTIAN NEIGHBOURHOOD SCHEME.
Below you will find a small piece about each church. You will receive a warm welcome at any of the activities that are described and particularly at worship held in each of the churches.
OUR COVENANT signed in December 1989 and reaffirmed in January 2000
We, the members of:
reaffirm our belief that the visible unity of the life and mission of all Christ's people is the will of God, but this does not mean uniformity but legitimate diversity.
We acknowledge the authority of Scripture and the truth of the Apostles' Creed and in so doing, we affirm our faith in God as Father who is the Creator, in Jesus Christ as Lord and Saviour, and in the Holy Spirit who continues God's work in the world today.
We rejoice in our traditions but recognise that our diversity can occasion unnecessary divisions which are a hindrance to mission. We repent of all that is sinful In our past histories and present attitudes.
We therefore make this commitment to God and to each other and we covenant to seek that visible unity, even though in our pilgrimage together we cannot foresee the form it will eventually take.
We commit ourselves and our churches:
a. to move through co-operation to clear commitment to each other, in search of the unity for which Christ prayed and in common evangelism and service to the world.
b. to engage In joint worship, prayer and study so that we may know and value each other and seek God's will for His people.
c. to work together in pastoral, social and evangelistic outreach into our community.
d. to publicise and promote our Church life and worship by joint means wherever possible.
e. to develop a Ministerial Team for regular prayer, study, consultation and appropriate action.
f. to create 'Churches Together In Dronfield and District' made up of an Assembly of the Ministerial Team and representatives from all participating churches. This Assembly will have power and finance to act on those matters which the individual churches have authorised it to carry out an their behalf.
g. to ensure that all Ministerial appointments, although made by each denomination, are made with such consultation with the Ministerial Team as is reasonably possible, consonant with denominational procedures.

Christian Care is a practical way in which people in need may be helped, particularly in a crisis, or when statutory services are slow or unable to help.
The volunteers are Christians who care for anybody in need, regardless of their creed. Help is given on a short term basis.
We charge for petrol and hospital parking only. Any donations are used to defray essential expenses.
If you need help, contact your Road Steward or Sheila Hadcocks. On receiving a request, one of our organisers will contact you, assess your need, and decide if we can help. If we have no suitable volunteers, a request goes to the churches and usually somebody comes forward to help.
