Welcome to Christ Church, Dore

We are grateful to all who helped and took part in our recent celebration of Christmas. If you missed the amazing Dore Community Choir at the service on 22nd December please click on the You Tube link below on this page.We are blessed with some truly talented individuals in our village.
Looking forward, on 14th March, Christ Church starts a programme of fun community events in order to raise funds and develop the church. We start with a chance to dance the night away with local band Five Rivers with special guests The Fickle Birds. 
Look out for publicity around the village and tickets (£10) from the Parish Office on Townhead Road or Robin Condliffe. Everyone is welcome. See the poster at the bottom of this page.

Church Hall

The Parish Church Council (PCC) met on 12th February to review comments, questions and suggestions which were received, both verbally and in written form, at the recent open meeting. They are very grateful for the level of interest in the future of the hall.
The PCC reiterates that they wish to retain the hall for community use.
A working group has been formed which will further evaluate different models of maintaining and developing the hall, and will report back to the PCC by the end of March. Following that we will communicate again, both with those individuals and groups who have expressed interest in the running of the hall, and with the community as a whole. 16th February 2019

Following the departure of our Vicar, Katie in January 2019, we are now in a Vacancy.
All Church correspondence should be directed to and through the Church Office.

Redevelopment News
Our plans for the redevelopment of the building have been through a consultation process with Heritage Agencies and City Planners.
We have taken on board feedback from them, the local community and church members. The Church Council has unanimously voted for and endorsed the plans, and are now applying for a Faculty (permission for the building work to go ahead) Thank you all for the comments you submitted in our recent consultation which were overall, very encouraging.

Our Architect is John Cunnington, of Walker Cunnington Architects

Members of the Building Development Group meet regularly with John to shape the Plans in the light of feedback and advice from the Heritage Agencies, and the Diocesan Advisory Committee.
Pledges of financial support continue to build up - thank you to all who have given to this project.

Church Walks are now up and running (walking?)

David and Hazel have started the Christ Church walks and you are very welcome to join one or more. Dogs on leads are welcome on all walks. The programme is as follows:
Friday 15 November a short walk to see Jane Eyre‘s and Little John’s connections with Hathersage. About 2 hours, gently uphill out and downhill back. Depart by car from Church at 1000 and park in the centre of Hathersage. From the centre of Hathersage the walk goes through attractive farmland (with great views) up to Jane Eyre’s “house” and returns through part of the old village. Bring a picnic, which you are welcome to enjoy at the Wood’s house when we get back to Dore. Tea and coffee will be provided.
Upcoming dates for your diaries: Saturday 30th November  

Details of walks later in the year can be found under "Belonging then adults"  OR CLICK Adults
Please contact us David 07745 859324 or Hazel 07760223415 with any questions or if you simply wish to register an interest in hearing more about the walks in future.
