Welcome the new Bishop

I enclose a message from the Diocese of Derbyshire below regarding the welcoming of Derbyshire's new bishop.


Welcome Bishop Jan to Derbyshire


For her Welcome Service on Wednesday 7th September (Derby Cathedral, 7pm) we are asking children to send her a postcard explaining why Derbyshire is an amazing place to live.


 A template is attached,  we ask that they draw a picture and write a short message and send them to us by 26 August.  CLICK HERE.


They can be sent by email to or posted to us: Communications Office, Derby Church House, Full Street, Derby, DE1 3DR. 


Please include the child’s name, age, School or church and a contact email address for a parent or guardian / teacher. If the child would be interested in reading out their message at the service please let us know.
