Welcome to the Chapel & Community Centre

Matlock Moor Methodist Church, which opened as a Primitive Methodist Chapel in 1903, has been a centre for Christian worship and witness for over a century. Even though we have had to shut our doors three times we are keeping in touch with, and praying for, each other. 

Please read our Mission Statement here.

We are a worshipping congregation and have had to use on-line and other resources since last March. We re-started the weekly yoga class in September and some services in October and December but have since been unable to hold services in the Chapel. However we do use zoom – see ‘What’s On’.

We are very friendly and before Covid-19, with the help of the community, organised regular events. We have a flexible space for community use and worship  and hope that it will again be fully used when this virus in under control.

We hope this web-site gives you an idea of who we are but if you want more informatiuon, need help, or want people to pray for you, use ‘Contact Us’ to let us know and we will get back to you.

Our Minister, the Rev’d Helen Penfold, is on sabbatical from April 5th.  

The Rev’d Colin Smith has pastoral oversight for Matlock Moor for the next 3 months.  If you wish to arrange a wedding, baptism or funeral please contact him.
