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".

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

Sunday worship every week at 10.30am and 6.30pm.

The church is normally open every day from 9am to 5pm (or dusk if sooner).

Our Art and Craft Fair takes place each year on Easter Monday (10.30am-5pm) and Easter Tuesday (10.30am-4pm). This year: 21st and 22nd April 2014.  

The Bradfield Festival of Music takes place each year at the end of June.  This year: 21st-28th June 2014.  Full details at  

Tour de France - Sunday 6th July 2014.  The race route itself through High Bradfield will be closed from 10am on Sunday 6th July.   This includes Brown House Lane and Kirk Edge Road.  (The A628 and A616 from Tintwistle to Stocksbridge will have been closed from midnight).  The only roads to be closed are those of the actual route, and adjoining roads at the point they connect with the route.  Closed roads will re-open at 6pm or as soon as it is safe to do so.  There will be no services at St Nicholas’ Church on Sunday 6th July, though we hope to have the church open for visitors on both the Saturday and Sunday.

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
