 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.

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
