St. Michael’s Church is the parish church of Breaston, and as such is part of the Church of England. With the parishes of St Giles’ Sandiacre, All Saints Sawley, St. John's Long Eaton, St Chad's Wilne and St Mary's Draycott we form a Mission & Ministry Area (No. 51) in the Diocese of Derby.
Breaston itself is a large village situated between Nottingham and Derby, to the west of (and just over the M1 from) Long Eaton on the A6005. It is a couple of miles from junction 25 of the M1.
The centre of the village - called The Green, despite being a car park! - is compact and contains a good variety of shops (including a post office), pubs, St. Michaels’ Church and Breaston Methodist Church. There is a vibrant community spirit, and a very definite sense of identity.
