St Peter's Church in Chellaston


'To know Christ and make Christ known'

We live to know and show the love of Jesus to everyone we meet.

We look forward to meeting you in the near future.

The parish of Chellaston: St Peter is committed to the safeguarding of children, young people and adults. We follow the House of Bishops guidance and policies and have our own Parish Safeguarding Officer(s), PSOs. The Diocese of Derby’s safeguarding pages contain vital links and information including contacts for the Diocesan Safeguarding Advisor (DSA) who advise our PSOs. 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. You will find the contact details on our dedicated safeguarding page.

The Zoom service will be recorded and be available to watch later in the day on YouTube or through this website.

If you are attending church.

· We can accommodate more people now (up to 50).  Please continue to book, this will help us ensure that test and trace is still in place. (Please would you indicate when you book if you require a socially distanced seat.)

· Please continue to wear your face covering or mask unless you are medically exempt. This will keep you and others safe.

· Please make use as usual of the hand gel stations on your way in and out.

· There are no restrictions on seating now except in the designated social distancing areas of the South Aisle and the Lady Chapel.

· Holy Communion - please remain is your seat and we will come to you. (It is now possible for us to dip your wafer into the wine and place it in your hand if you are happy for this to happen.)

· We will continue to use the Nave Altar for the time being.

When you leave the building after the service.

· please move away from the door to enable others to leave safely.

· If you stay inside or move outside to chat, please be respectful of others and stand at a safe distance

All the safety guidelines we have put in place will be reviewed regularly to consider whether they are still appropriate and we will keep you informed of these as changes happen. 

We are currently reviewing being able to offer refreshments after the 10.00am service. 


Due to the size of our building and the challenges with ventilation, in our responsibilities for keeping those attending church safe, until further notice we find it necessary to restrict numbers for these services to 50 adults.  Children under 12 will not be counted in this number. 



It is no longer necessary to book a seat for church services - just come along - socially distanced seats are available for those that prefer this option.

Services will be zoomed from church - if you would like to join in this way please email:[email protected]

The services will be recorded and be available to watch later in the day through YouTube and this website.

Private Prayer

Every Saturday at 10 a.m. for 1hr 30m
Add to my calendar

High Street

St Peter's will be open for private individual prayer on Saturday Mornings from 24th April during the Covid-19 crisis. Please read the notices and make use of the hand sanitising stations as you enter and as you leave. You are required by law to wear a face covering as you enter the church. We will ask you to check in using your smart phone and the QR code or to fill in a short contact details form for Track and Trace purposes. The staff will be wearing face covering to ensure your safety. It would help us greatly if you would read the notices in the church and only sit where indicated. Thank you for you help.


We invite all those who have lost a loved one this year to send in a photo and a name to be included as a memorial during the service. Please send your photo by private message or to [email protected]
