About Chesterfield Parish Church

Mission Statement

Chesterfield Parish Church is a symbol and focus of the presence of God and is served by a community of people who work and worship in this place. Using our diverse skills we cherish for future generations the inheritance of this building: its worship, scholarship, teaching, music making and architectural craft. We commit to the cultural diversity, equal opportunities and personal development of all who work here. We welcome all who visit this House of God.


The Parish Church, which is first and foremost a house of prayer and a place of Christian worship and witness, stands to the glory of God, who has been made known to us by Jesus Christ and in whose Name the community has worshipped on this site for well over 1000 years. Chesterfield Parish Church is the largest Parish Church in the Diocese of Derby.
