Welcome to the website for the churches of Atlow, Bradley, Hognaston, Hulland and Kniveton. We are a group of five village churches whose aim is to love and serve God and our communities.
We hope you enjoy exploring this site and that you find what you are looking for. If you have any questions or comments, please don't hesitate to get in touch.

Creative and Competitive!

I wouldn’t consider myself to be a very creative sort of person.  I don’t ‘garden’, instead I ‘hack’.  I can’t draw or paint, I photograph instead. I can sew on a button, but I can’t do cross stitch or tapestry.  I can play the trombone if I’ve got music to follow, but I can’t improvise, making it up as I go along.  My creative talents are quite limited.

I can be quite competitive though.  I should have been pleased to have come third in the dad’s race at the school sports day recently, but there were only four of us racing!  At least I managed to win some half marathons when I was a teenager.

The Hulland Flower Festival and Village Show on the August bank holiday weekend give us the opportunity to be both creative and competitive.  The flower festival in church combines people’s creativity with that of God’s.  The village show on the Saturday encourages people to do their best or to try to select God’s best to put on show.  There are prizes to be won and acclaim to revel in.

The Atlow Summer Party on 23rd August is another opportunity to enjoy creativity.  There will be dancing, and Pipes and Drums and live music from the A52s.

Whatever you end up doing during August, may you enjoy being creative, or you may enjoy the creativity of others insead!
