Youlgrave, All Saints

Youlgrave, All Saints

Welcome to All Saints, Youlgrave.  Early in the 12th century Christians began to build this church as a permanent place of worship and witness to their faith. Built on the site of a Saxon church, it has been altered and added to in succeeding centuries - Tudor memorials and a Burn-Jones east window are but two examples.

Celtic people had a saying that heaven and earth are "only three feet apart' - and that there are 'thin places' where that distance is even smaller"¦ For well over a thousand years, Youlgrave seems to have been just such a place.

People of all walks of life still seek out spiritual things here, worship God here, live out a life of faith here. Why not come and visit this 'thin place' - of church and hills and valleys - and experience it for yourself?

Regular bell-ringing - visiting ringers welcome by appointment.  Music concerts throughout the year - visiting musicians welcome.
