Accessibility

There are toilets on the Tissington Trail, open every day.

Our Building

With Norman features, and Victorian additions and alterations, the church is an intimate and delightful building. There is no running water, but a large trough for people to use for their flowers in the churchyard.


Music and Worship

we ring three bells for weddings, if asked, and for major national events. Our bell ringers often travel to other churches, and we welcome visiting groups.

We are blessed to have a wonderful organ and a few skilled organists who play for our services, weddings and funerals.

Our BCP Holy Communion is usually on the third Sunday of the month at 8.00 am without hymns.

We meet monthly in the Methodist Tissington Chapel for fellowship and Bible study, welcoming people from several parishes and all denominations. Usually the third Wednesday of the month at 7.00pm All welcome
