Derby City Deanery

Area Dean: Revd Canon Dr Simon Taylor

Assistant Area Deans: Revd Trudie Morris and Revd Dr Simon Cartwright

Deanery Administrator: Ms Jo Simister

Derby City Deanery is made up of all the parishes in the city of Derby. It also includes chaplaincies and one Bishop’s Mission Order church. At over 250,000 inhabitants, it has about a quarter of the population of the Diocese. This population is culturally diverse and many faiths are represented. The Deanery has many characteristics in common with other inner cities – for example, it includes more than half the areas of deprivation within the Diocese.

The formation of the new Deanery as a legal entity is still in progress. We launched at a Festival of Life at Boulton St Mary’s in September 2016 and we are meeting as a combined Synod representing all 35 parishes (including the Cathedral), chaplaincies and BMOs.
