About Us

Welcome to the home page for St Mary's - a lively and welcoming church at the heart of the community of Crich. 
We are a collective of people from the community who, knowing Jesus, wants Jesus to be known by many and to share our story together. St Mary's is linked with All Saints, South Wingfield and shares ministry and worship together.

From early January 2023, St Mary's and All Saints will be in vacancy as Rev Ian Whitehead retires. 
For funeral bookings please contact Dennis Hooton (Reader) on 01773-852158.
