A spiritual Pilgrimage
“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.
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.
