We are a church in Ripley in Derbyshire, a market town just north of Derby. We are a warm and welcoming community of Christians from the town and wider area who love God and love Ripley and are looking for God’s blessing for this town and area. We are part of the Church of England, and our church of All Saints is the parish church for most of the town of Ripley and some of the nearby area. We long to see our lives and communities transformed through the love of Jesus.
Coronavirus update May 2020
Unfortunately, due to the spread of COVID-19, all services and meetings usually held in the church have been suspended until further notice, and the church building must remain closed. However the church community still remains active and supportive – in prayer, in conversations by phone and online, and in practical help where needed.
