We raise funds to support our Church to ensure a Community place for the future

Story

All Saints Church is a Grade One listed building loved by Youlgreave village's community, both those who attend church regularly and those who don’t.

Our Church has undergone many alterations since its founding in 1155 to make it more beneficial for subsequent generations. Last renovated over 150 years ago, we now have to raise the funds for a kitchen and loos to make it more welcoming - for children, the elderly and everyone in between - for the next 150. That fundraising - as well as awareness raising - is the reason for the Pommie Pilgrimage to all 42 Anglican Cathedrals!

You can walk your own walk, or support other walkers and you don’t have to be a church goer to join in as the School, Youlgreave Band, football club, and all the pubs and shops will be getting involved in the challenge.

So please donate and support this epic challenge!

About the charity

All Saints stands at a crossroads near the centre of Youlgrave village, and we feel privileged to be regarded as a valued part of the village community, among both church-goers and non-church-goers. We feel it is important that church is kept open, and we extend a warm welcome to all our visitors, whether they come to join us for worship, or to see All Saints’ history or to simply appreciate a time of stillness or prayer. We appreciate reading comments left in our visitors’ book, and we pray regularly for prayer requests left in the book in our side chapel. We are delighted to have a good relationship with Youlgrave Primary School, who use church for curriculum activities, and also for Christmas, Easter and Harvest services and events. The school children have also contributed to our Easter displays and our flower festivals.
