St Edmund's Church Holme Pierrepont


We would love to welcome you into the quiet beauty of what has been a place of worship since at least 1200 AD. 

It is a place of singing, every Sunday, with alternating morning and evening services. We worship God and pray for our community and nation mainly using the Book of Common Prayer (BCP). 

St Edmund’s seeks to be a place where people can drop in to be quiet and pray, in the midst of a busy world. We pray that you will discover the presence of God and find refreshment and restoration in Jesus through the power of the Holy Spirit. 

This beautiful Grade I listed building represents construction from a number of different periods of history. The church is accessed through the grounds of Holme Pierrepont Hall and contains many historically significant examples of its strong links with the Pierrepont family. This includes their familial vault, alabaster monuments and fascinating inscriptions, a well as links to other local historical figures such as Bess of Hardwick. 

Whether  you are looking to celebrate your wedding service her, find a place to host a retreat, join us for one of the many concerts that take place here, we are sure you will find a warm welcome and a beautiful quiet space. To visit and learn a little about the history, represented in the building, email the vicar.
