St Giles Church Hartington
St. Giles is the Church of England Parish Church for Hartington, within the Diocese of Derby. Hartington Church dates back to about 1250 AD and was once one of the largest parishes in England covering some 24,000 acres. During the 19th century several other churches were built to serve nearby communities. Now Hartington Church just serves the immediate village and the parish of Hartington Town Quarter and is part of "The White Peak" group of parishes together with Biggin, Earl Sterndale, Monyash, Chelmorton and, Taddington.
Our Church is open for services on Sunday and daily between the hours of 10:00 and 16:00 (extended to 17:00 during British Summer Time) for visitors and private prayers and you are always welcome to enjoy the Church and its surroundings and to join us for worship at our regular Sunday services.
