We are very much a living, lively, vibrant and modern Church! We have lots happening on Sunday, as well as during the week. We have a strong commitment to youth work and have many other all age activities taking place continually.
Our Rector, Mike, joined our ministry here in Eyam with his wife, Jenny, in December 2012. Adam, our Generational Pastor, arrived in August 2006. Together they minister not only to St Lawrence, Eyam but also across the United Benefice of Baslow and Eyam, at St Hughes in Foolow and St Anne's in Baslow.
Christian worship has taken place in Eyam for over 1000 years! Our first recorded Rector began his ministry in 1250 and our Church dates from Saxon times. St Lawrence has huge amounts of history and played a key role in the 1665 - 66 plague when the villagers cut themselves off to prevent the spread of the disease.
Whether you are joining us for fellowship on a Sunday or visiting our historic Church; we look forward to welcoming you in person!
"Our vision is to be a Church, characterised by fellowship experienced in many ways and particularly in accessible small groups. We will have a broad and accountable leadership which listens well and ensures good communication. Our purpose is through prayer, worship and Bible study, to grow evangelising disciples, who enabled by the Holy Spirit exercise their gifts. We will celebrate our young people as integral members of the body of Christ. We will strive by God's grace to be a light in our local community."
