On the first Sunday of each month, at 9am, we will have a relaxed, informal and friendly time of worship for people of all ages. No communion and with refreshments afterwards. Everyone welcome.
The church building is not kept open during the day. If you would like to visit then please contact us in advance to arrange it.
The new extension is almost finished. We now have a disabled entrance, a toilet and small kitchen area. The car park is open during times of worship. The church is now warm and welcoming and the Tuesday 9am communion has returned.
The Church Building
All Saints’ Church is well worth visiting for its beautiful design and friendly services. It is the centre for Christian worship in Denstone and is also an historically important building in the development of the village.
The church was founded by Sir Percival Heywood, who employed George Edward Street to design it. Street was a great architect associated with the “Gothic revival”, ranking alongside Pugin and Butterfield. All Saints was Street’s favourite Church, and is regarded as one of his finest works. Its corner stone was laid in 1860 and the church was completed in 1862.
For a more detailed history, a leaflet is available from All Saints’ Church on request. And will soon be available via this website.
