Parish Safeguarding Handbook
The Parish Safeguarding Handbook has been updated to reflect the Training and Development Framework 2019. For those in possession of original printed copies of the Parish Safeguarding Handbook, an addendum may be downloaded and printed off to replace the information found on pages 16 and 17.

Safer Working Practice
The companion to the Parish Safeguarding Handbook, Safer Environments and Activities, has now been published on the Policy and Practice Guidance section of the website. This guidance provides highly practical advice for parishes, helping them to run their day-to-day activities as safely as possible.

Archdeacon David taking up new role in Diocese of Blackburn
After nearly eight years as Archdeacon of Newark, The Venerable David Picken is moving on following his appointment as the Archdeacon of Lancaster in the Diocese of Blackburn.
David, who leaves in mid-January next year, said: “I will miss Southwell & Nottingham enormously. I have thoroughly enjoyed my time here and met some wonderful people who it has been a privilege to serve as part of God’s ministry. Read full story here.






The Revd Dr Caroline Phillips has been licensed as vicar of St Peter and St Paul and St Mark’s Mansfield by the Bishop of Southwell & Nottingham, the Rt Revd Paul Williams. The service took place on 24th September at St Peter & St Paul.
She said: “Mansfield is a great town to serve God with great people, and hope to build on my past experience as I minister on the town centre and across the parishes of St Peter’s and St Mark’s.  God is definitely on the move here, and I’m very much looking forward to discovering where God will lead the churches as we worship, serve and reach out with his love.” Click here for more.


Four amazing days of oneLIFE
Churches across Southwell & Nottingham shared the good news of Jesus with the people in their communities during the oneLIFE mission that was headed up by the Archbishop of York, Dr John Sentamu, and supported by a dozen bishops from the Northern Province.
Churches organised more than 450 events and activities as part of the mission and invited people along, and they came – some of the venues were packed out. In the city of Nottingham, in towns and in villages, new contacts and friendships were made and new steps in faith taken.
Events included film shows, picnics, barbecues, school visits, fashion shows, Messy Church, prayer walks, storytelling, concerts featuring Christian rappers, a magic show and sports events.

Amazing testimonies

  1. Can you put a thank you in the next pew sheet to Tristan Jones and David boot for staying with me after boys brigade on Monday to wait for the paramedics when I had a gallstone attack

    • Dear Adam,
      I’ve just taken over sorting out the web pages and have noticed your comment/request.
      I’m sorry if it hasn’t been replied to previously.
      Would you like me to get this in the next pew sheet as a belated thanks to David and Tristan?
      Best wishes,
