We pray for the peace of our nation, the peace of the world, 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.

Armed Forces Day - Saturday 24th June, 11am at Storrs Wood War Memorial (Storrs Lane, Sheffield S6 6GY) - Short Act of Remembrance and Prayers for Peace. All welcome.

The Bradfield Festival of Music takes place each year at the end of June. This year Saturday 24th June to Saturday 1st July.  Tickets now available.  Full details at "Bradfield Festival of Music"  

After the Grenfell Tower disaster, the Bishop of Kensington has provided some useful guidance for those wanting to help. Here it is:  Prayer – Please pray for all those waiting for news of loved ones, and for courage for the emergency services. Please pray for all those who cannot go home, that accommodation will be found for them.  Donate – At the moment, given such great generosity yesterday, it has been requested that no donations of clothes, food, toiletries etc are dropped off at any of the centres including St Clements Church, whilst they assess what they have. Thank you to all those who have already helped in this way. We know that over the coming days and weeks, parishes may want to donate money to families who have lost everything in the fire. The Kensington and Chelsea Foundation has launched a Grenfell Tower appeal for funding, with support from London Funders and the London Emergency Trust Fund. Details of the appeal and how the public can support it can be found on this website:


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 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
