Welcome to All Saints Church, Wingerworth
Nourishing Saints for Today: Growing Saints for Tomorrow
A very warm welcome to All Saints church website, the parish church of Wingerworth near Chesterfield. I hope you find what you are looking for as you click through our pages but if not do email us.
Most importantly do come and visit us! At All Saints we believe that God has a destiny for each one of us in all our diversity. Christ’s church is not dogma but an unfolding of our hearts to be open to God’s call to become the true human being that we are. By sharing in our family spiritual meal, the Eucharist, and working together in fellowship within our community we can grow our spirituality and work towards a better world.
Embedded in the architecture of our beautiful and unusual building is over a thousand years of evolving worship and community life. From the original 11th century chapel (now the Lady Chapel) to its more modern, expansive extension with its light-filled stained glass and transcendent High Altar it is a testament to the faith and dedication of those who came before us.
Come and be nourished in the heart of Wingerworth.
While we hope you enjoy the history and the many unusual features of our church we also hope that you will sense that this is a special place set apart for prayer and worship and that the very stones themselves speak of prayerful dedication throughout the ages. It is a living monument to God as Creator, Redeemer and Sustainer and continues to be a focus for a new generation of saints in the making.
I am sure you will enjoy your time with us.
Rev Fr Jonathan Poston
