The Rt Revd Libby Lane, Bishop of Derby,  has recognised long service and missional innovation among church communities in the Diocese of Derby.

At a special service in Derby Cathedral, on Sunday 6th November 2022, Bishop Libby presented more than 75 people with their Bishop's Badge.

Bishop's Badges are awarded to nominees who have supported their churches and local communities.

The recipients are nominated by clergy in the diocese.

The Bishop's Badge, white enamel with the bishop's crest, has historic links, based on a medal that the very first Bishop of Derby, Bishop Edmund Pearce, had struck to celebrate this new beginning.

Medals were presented to distinguished members of the diocese and to all those being confirmed in that year. 

Now, it is a replica of this medal that is mounted in the form of a badge and awarded by the diocesan bishop to acknowledge outstanding service.
