All Saints’ Church – Denstone Parish Church
All Saints’ Church is well worth visiting for its beautiful design and friendly services. It is the centre for C of E Christian worship in Denstone and is also historically important.
The church was founded by Sir Percival Heywood, who employed George Edward Street to design it. Street was a great architect associated with the “Gothic revival”, ranking alongside Pugin and Butterfield. All Saints’ was Street’s favourite Church and is regarded as one of his finest works. Its corner stone was laid in 1860 and the church was completed in 1862.
For a more detailed history, a leaflet is available from All Saints’ Church on request.
All Saints’ Church is now under the care of Reverend Liz Jones, together with St Michael’s Church, Rocester, St Giles Church, Croxden and St John the Evangelist Church, Hollington.
Liz has a web site for these four churches (“RDCH” standing for Rocester, Denstone, Croxden and Hollington). For information about services and other church matters, please see link below.
