About Us

Colston Bassett is a small village (population about 200), ten miles south-east of Nottingham.

The village has a strong sense of community and the church of St John the Divine is very much part of this. We offer you a warm welcome to any of our services, but particularly to our 'Special' services (usually at 10.30 am on the third Sunday of the month), to which residents of the village who are not regular worshippers are invited. Since they were introduced in 2017, average congregations at these services have tripled. In 2019, these services will include a Pets’ Service, Father’s Day Service in the village pub, Picnic & Praise and a Village Thanksgiving Service, as well as traditional festivals and special days. Click here for more details.
