Church of England Diocese of Derby St. Francis, Mackworth

St Francis Mackworth (@stfmackworth)

Welcome to St Francis Mackworth (@stfmackworth).

As a church we long to see St Francis as a light on the hill for the estate and as a living and vibrant centre of Mackworth once again.

The church began in a wooden hut on Brackensdale Avenue on the 4th of October 1953. It adopted St. Francis of Assisi as it’s patron and a few years later a new church was built on the Estate by the Diocese of Derby. In 1966 a new families centre was built on the side of the church. This has an incredible history of being the centrepiece of the estate’s life. However in recent years the church is now made up of a small group of faithful people.

In September 2017, the Rt. Rev. Alastair Redfearn Bishop of Derby, invited a team from Holy Trinity Brompton in London, to open the derelict church of St. Werburgh's in Friar Gate, to once again establish a living Christian community in the heart of Derby. The Rev. Andy Bond, together with his wife Rachel and their two children moved from Holy Trinity SE20, to be part of St Werburgh's, knowing that they in turn would be looking to lead a church plant in the future. In 2020 the diocese of Derby invited Andy and Rachel together with their young family to pioneer a new work at St. Francis Mackworth.

Due to meeting restrictions we are currently live online from our homes to yours.

It is a a very relaxed fun service, between 45 mins to an hour, with a couple of modern songs, a section specifically for kids, some prayers, a bible reading and a talk that seeks to connect the truth about Jesus to our day to day lives.

We try not to take ourselves too seriously, but we take Jesus really seriously
