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.

Heritage Open Days operates as part of the National Trust with funding from players of People’s Postcode Lottery and Historic England. Established in 1994, it is England’s contribution to the European Heritage Days, which is held annually in September in 50 signatory states to the European Cultural Convention.

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
