Welcome to our parish church in the beautiful Peak District National Park

Our church in Ashford-in-the-Water near Bakewell

                                                            His Royal Highness, Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh.

We would like to express our sorrow at the death of His Royal Highness, Prince Philip and we give thanks to God for his long life; for his unfailing support to her Majesty the Queen and for his dedicated service to the Nation and Commonwealth.

I know that you will join with us in sending our sincere condolences and prayers to Her Majesty the Queen and to the Royal Family.


The aim of Holy Trinity is to be an open door showing God’s love to all. For centuries our church has been a place where people have encountered a God who loves, accepts, heals, forgives and renews them. We seek, as a warm, welcoming and inclusive Christian community, to discover and share God’s love through creating lively worship; a caring fellowship and a serving community. Whether you are enquiring about who we are, interested in having somebody baptised, seeking to make a loving commitment in marriage, or thinking about visiting us, you are very welcome!
