“Offering a welcoming, God-centred environment to the people of New Mills”

 

St. George’s Church is proud to be the Parish Church of New Mills.   Many local people speak of the warm welcome they receive for baptisms and weddings, and many families have loved ones buried in our churchyard.

The Church is packed with local residents – and some who travel a great distance – for festivals and special occasions.   Our regular congregation are a warm and welcoming group of people who strive to be the people of God in this place, and they belong to many organisations in and around the church and town.

Justly proud of our Choir and Organist, they bring beautiful and uplifting music to our worship.  Local schoolchildren find us a welcome resource for their R.E. lessons, and we thoroughly enjoy them in church for their assemblies, concerts and presentations.  We also have excellent links with St George’s Primary School, our Church primary school.

There is an expanding programme of activities for members of the community.  You can find up-to-date information, news and events on our Facebook and Twitter pages.

The people of the church care for these beautiful buildings on behalf of all local people, fundraising extensively and receiving no government help.  We want to ensure that the church is here to serve many generations into the future, just as it has been here in the past.

We are part of the Church of England, and worship God together in the Catholic Tradition where a spirit of joy predominates.  We are what the Diocese of Derby refers to as a ”Mission and Ministry Area”, and the whole of the Parish is where we are called to work for God engaging in both mission and ministry.

New Mills itself is a lively and interesting town on the edge of Derbyshire’s Peak District where our agricultural and industrial past, present and future meet.

Information about the Churchyard & Boundary Wall
We would like to advise that the churchyard is no longer under the jurisdiction of St. George’s Parish Church and is now the responsibility and care of High Peak Borough Council. The churchyard is closed to new burials, but still open for burial of cremated remains.
The boundary wall (the wall that leads along Church Road and Church Lane) is under the jurisdiction of Derbyshire County Council Highways.
 
A number of volunteers from St. George’s Parish Church strive to maintain the cleanliness and upkeep of the grounds of the church wherever possible. However, they are limited to what they are able to do due to mobility and safety. We are always looking for volunteers who would be happy to spare a couple of hours a month, to join in and help keep the pathways clean and weed free
If you would be interested in helping us, please email us or call: 01663 749323.
If you have any issues regarding the churchyard please contact High Peak Borough Council on: 01298 28400
If you have any issues with the boundary wall, please contact Derbyshire County Council on: 01629 533190
