Welcome, and thank you for visiting the Trent and Derwent Parish Churches online. There has been a Christian presence along this part of the Trent valley for about 1350 years. Our seven beautiful, ancient parish churches are the focal point of the life of a community of Christian people, who seek to offer worship and prayer and serve the local parish in the name of Jesus. Please feel free to read more about our churches on this site, or drop by for a visit. We would love to meet you, no matter what your own faith background might be.

The Trent and Derwent Parishes are a group of parishes, known as a "Benefice", within the Church of England. We are part of the Diocese of Derby and the Deanery of Mercia. Our Rector, the Rev'd Tony Luke, and his Ministry Team serve all seven parishes of Aston on Trent, Weston on Trent, Elvaston, Shardlow, Swarkestone, Barrow upon Trent and Twyford.
