– PUBLIC WORSHIP REINSTATED –
Whilst Government guidance has been revised to allow certain activities to take place in church buildings, it is still vital that the necessary hygiene and social distancing precautions are kept in place in order to protect the NHS and save lives.
Times for Church Services and Church Open for Private Prayer
Now that our usual schedule for weekly worship has resumed, we have taken the decision to suspend the private prayer sessions. Please keep an eye on this website or our facebook page for up to date information.
8.00am Parish Eucharist
10.00am Parish Eucharist

It is now mandatory to wear a face covering when entering the church for public worship.
Everyone who wishes to enter this building for public worship is welcome. You can enter on your own or with members of your immediate household. Numbers will be limited to allow for social distancing and necessary hygiene measures. Please be patient if this means you have to wait.
We confirm we have read and complied with the government’s guidance on managing the risk of COVID-19 in places of worship.
What we have done:
- We have carried out a COVID-19 risk assessment
- We have cleaning, hand cleansing and hygiene procedures in place, in line with government guidance
- We have taken all reasonable steps to help everyone maintain a 2m distance between different users of our church
What we expect you to do:
- Refrain from entering if you are feeling unwell or have experienced any COVID-19 symptoms in the past seven days
- Take responsibility for your own safety and that of your household and other people by maintaining social distancing and observing all hygiene measures
- Ensure children are supervised at all times
“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.
