About Us

Our church of St Andrew is one of the architectural gems of Derbyshire. Along with the Manor House it was mentioned in the Doomsday book in 1086; the remains of the Manor house moat can be seen across the road opposite the church. There is herringbone stone work on the north side of the church which may be Saxon; the church tower dates from the reign of Henry VIII; but there is something to see from almost every period of English history. The Eucharist is celebrated on the original medieval stone altar which was recovered for liturgical use by a former rector. It is of such a size and quality that it was probably fashioned to hold part of the relics of St Andrew.

 Our services range from traditional Book of Common Prayer Evensong to Family Service and The Holy Eucharist. On the first Sunday of the month the Eucharist is celebrated in one of the churches of the South Dales Benefice of which we are a part.
