Welcome to the Mercia Deanery.
We are part of the Archdeaconry of Derby City and South Derbyshire.


The deanery stretches down as far as Croxall and up to Elvaston. The parishes are a mix of rural and market town and developing industrial communities. There are 33 churches and 30 parishes in the deanery. Within the borders, there are the historic churches of Melbourne and Repton. There have been archeological digs at Repton’s vicarage that have uncovered Viking activity... very exciting!
