"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 page.

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.

There will always be someone at the entrance to welcome you to the church and to help you feel at home.  They will also give you an order of service.  Please do ask any questions if you are not sure of anything.

Worship, Prayer & Music

Our worship here varies throughout the year depending on the Christian calendar.  The readings and prayers and worship all reflect the theme of the day or seasons.  The music is led by our church choir and organist.

During communion, if you are confirmed, please feel free to come up to the altar to receive the bread & wine.

If you would just like a blessing, please bring up your order of service to the altar to indicate this.

Where should I sit?


You can sit anywhere you feel comfortable.  If you are unsure, one of our Churchwardens or Sidespeople will be more than happy to help you.

Giving


St. George’s Parish Church relies entirely on the generosity of our regular congregation giving and we do not receive any funding from the government.  The money we receive goes towards the community work, pastoral work, missionary and ministry work within the parish of New Mills.

We are also responsible for the upkeep of this beautiful and historic building of St. George’s.  The money that our regular congregation gives also has to cover the electric, lighting, heating and repairs.  This special building is here as a place of prayer, sanctuary as well as being a  useable space for the whole community.

For the work and life of St. George’s to continue, we need your help.

You can donate today by scanning the QR code opposite and using our safe online giving platform operated by 'Givealittle'.
