Derby Cathedral


Whatever your reason for visiting Derby Cathedral, you can be assured of a warm welcome - whether it's to one of our special events or to one of our regular services - or because you simply want to take a little time out of a busy schedule to pray, or to enjoy a few minutes of solitude and reflection.

The Cathedral Church of All Saints, Derby, is the number-one tourist destination in the city. 

And no wonder!

It is steeped in history, boasting an 18th-Century wrought iron rood screen, manufactured by Robert Bakewell, and the tomb of Bess of Hardwick.

You'll also find a number of carefully selected events and concerts taking place inside.

Our door is open to all - please don't hesitate to walk through it.

And please do use the links on the left to find out more about our services and other events.

We look forward to seeing you soon!

The parish of All Saints Derby is committed to the safeguarding of children, young people and adults. We follow the House of Bishops guidance and policies and have our own Cathedral Safeguarding Links. 

The Diocese of Derby’s safeguarding pages contain vital links and information including contacts for the Diocesan Safeguarding Advisor (DSA) who advise our Cathedral Safeguarding Links. If you are concerned that a child or adult has been harmed or may be at risk of harm please contact the DSA. If you have immediate concerns about the safety of someone, please contact the police and your local authority Children or Adults Services. 


Please help us continue with our ministry and community work

At Derby Cathedral we take safeguarding very seriously and it is central to Chapter’s care for the life and work of the Cathedral.

Safeguarding means the action we take to promote a safer culture for everyone in church. It means that we will promote the welfare of children, young people and adults. We will be aware of vulnerable people and situations. We will work to prevent abuse from occurring, to protect those who are at risk of being abused, and to respond well to those who have been abused in any way. We will take care to identify where a person may present a risk to others, and offer support to them whilst taking steps to mitigate such risks.

Derby Cathedral wishes to place the experience of survivors of all forms of abuse, including sexual abuse, at the heart of its safeguarding commitment.

Safeguarding is an item on the agenda for every Chapter meeting. The Cathedral Safeguarding Committee reports to Chapter and is chaired by a Lay Member of Chapter.

Derby Cathedral’s safeguarding practice was audited in March 2019 by the Social Care Institute of Excellence (SCIE) and the report is available to read on this page. As a result of the recommendations from the audit, an action plan was put together. This has now been completed and available to download, together with the Cathedral’s Safeguarding Policy and related documents.

We undertake to

- Promote a safe environment for all
- Respond promptly to every safeguarding concern or allegation.
- Follow ‘Safer Recruitment’ processes and checks for all staff or volunteers with any responsibility related to children and vulnerable adults within the Cathedral.
- Care pastorally for victims/survivors of abuse and other affected people.
- Care pastorally for those who are the subject of concerns or allegations of abuse.
- Respond to those that may pose a present risk to others.
