I am the Revd. Amanda Cartwright (normally known as Mandy) and I am the Rector of the East Trent group of churches.
We are a group of 11 churches serving 15 villages and small communities in a beautiful part of North East Nottinghamshire, between the river Trent and Lincolnshire. We are part of the Diocese of Southwell and Nottingham in the Church of England.
We are privileged to have varied and attractive places of worship which are used imaginatively and creatively as centres of community.
As a Christian community, we believe in God as Father, Son and Holy Spirit, so we believe that relationship and community is at the heart of God and should be at the heart of all we do. We believe that church is for everyone, whether you want somewhere to belong, you are asking questions about belief or whether you have a long standing Christian faith.
We hope we reflect something of Jesus’ attitude of welcome and inclusion to everyone.
God bless you,
Keep in touch:

Ensuring that children and young people as well as adults are kept safe whilst in our care is an integral part of our church life.
The Church of England is undertaking a second review of files held in all dioceses and parishes to ensure that churches and church related activities are as safe as possible for children and vulnerable adults.
Known as the Past Cases Review 2, it aims to identify both good practice and institutional failings in the way that allegations of abuse have been handled in the past. It will also provide recommendations on how practice and processes can be improved.
Individuals who wish to make representations to the PCR2 process, or who need to come forward with information, or make any disclosures regarding church related abuse, are encouraged to make direct contact with the Diocesan Safeguarding Adviser (DSA) on 01636 817200 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
However, recognising that for those with a lived experience of abuse from within the church may not feel comfortable, a dedicated telephone helpline - 0800 80 20 20 - operated independently from the church, by the NSPCC, has been set up. Anyone can use the helpline to provide information or to raise concerns regarding abuse within the Church of England; whether they are reporting issues relating to children, adults or seeking to whistle blow about poor safeguarding practice.
