We pray for the peace of the world, the peace of our nation, peace in our hearts, peace in our homes.​

St Nicholas' Church is a beautiful 15th century building set in Sheffield's Peak District, with many interesting features: glass, stonework, and woodwork.  Simon Jenkins, in "England's Thousand Best Churches" writes that, from the church, "the view is glorious, enjoyed by the weather beaten gargoyles peering from under toppling pinnacles".

The church is normally open 9am-5pm.  

Church Groups include: Bellringing, Choir, Flower Group, Handbells, and Mothers Union

Sunday worship every week at 10.30am and 6.30pm.

The "Bradfield Feoffees" manage some social housing in High Bradfield, specifically for local people, and/or people who may be in need in some way. Places occasionally become available. Anyone wanting further information should contact the Revd Alan Isaacson

The Bradfield Festival of Music takes place each year at the end of June. The next Festival will take place 23rd-30th June 2018. Full details at "Bradfield Festival of Music"  

Four of our stained glass windows are to be removed for cleaning and restoration, and the stone frames and surrounding stonework to be repaired and repointed.  The Christmas Window, The Galilee Window, The Sermon on the Mount Window, and The York Window.  Work will begin in September 2017.  Donations towards this project and general donations may be made at Just Giving - St Nicholas' Church Bradfield .  Thank you to all supporters.

Our "values statement" agreed at our Annual Meeting, April 2008:

St Nicholas' Church, Bradfield

Together, we are seeking

     to deepen our personal spirituality and awareness of God

     in Christ’s name, to offer friendship, welcome, and care to all people (young and old, female and male, all races, all backgrounds); and to enjoy good, strong friendships with one another

     to give generously through the church, in Christ’s name, to support those in need, and to grow in our understanding of the situations that others face, always aware that we are members of the global human family; and to learn from, and to support, churches in other places, as fellow members of the one Body of Christ

     to be actively involved in our local communities, for the benefit of all; and to treat our environment well

     with humility, gratitude, and creativity: to treasure, maintain, strengthen, and develop the inheritance we have received in our worship and church building


The Poppy Memorial Trail book is now available, soild in aid of the Royal British Legion, Help for Heroes, and St Nicholas' Church.  Donations also may be made via JustGiving at Just Giving - Poppy Memorial Trail Thank you to all supporters.
