St Edmund’s Church, Allestree
St Edmund’s Church (Church of England) is set at the heart of the historic village of Allestree which is now a suburb on the north side of the City of Derby. The church stands next to the Red Cow pub, just to the west of the A6, looking down towards the River Derwent in one direction and over Park Farm to the University in the other. It is usually open from about 8.30 every morning through till mid-afternoon. On Sundays it tends to be locked in the afternoon. If you are making a special visit, please ring us first.
We are linked with St Matthew’s Church, Darley Abbey, just across the A38. Our churches are more than just beautiful buildings – they are living communities. Regular worship, on Sunday and during the week, brings together a diverse community – we aim for worship done well, with good music and thoughtful preaching. There are opportunities to study, opportunities for friendship – coffee mornings and social events. We welcome baptisms, weddings and funerals, seeking to serve our community, and beyond. We try and do all this in the name of Jesus, to welcome all in God’s name. To find out more about Jesus and the Christian faith please click here.
