We are a group of Church of England churches found in the Derbyshire Dales, and if you are thinking of coming to church for the first time, or perhaps returning to church after an absence, then we would like to invite you to our services or perhaps one of the many activities with which we are involved. We seek to welcome all irrespective of age, ability, ethnic origin, class, sexual orientation, gender identity, or previous church experience.
Our churches offer Christian worship, with room for all to participate. We aim to be a pilgrim people, seeking, discovering, questioning, growing, and we hope to be transformed by our journey together. In partnership with other churches and local groups and agencies we work for the flourishing of the communities we serve.
We care for the historic church buildings in the communities we serve, and aim to facilitate their use for purposes in keeping with their heritage as sacred spaces. Most of our churches are open each day, certainly in the summer, and for many people visiting and exploring, the “space” that a church can provide is an opportunity to connect with their spiritual “heart”.
We are committed to the wider vision of the Church of England, which for centuries has provided places of Christian celebration, and a focus for all of life’s significant events.
If you are visiting the area as a tourist, then you are very welcome to call in. While you are in the Derbyshire Dales then you might like to explore some of the other churches in the area. Details of all of them can be found on the Derbyshire Churches link at the bottom of this page.
Details of our churches and service times are to be found on this website in the services page. A list of what is happening next Sunday can be found at the events page.
