COVID-19: the Methodist Church updated its guidance on July 28th (https://www.methodist.org.uk/for-churches/property/coronavirus-guidance-for-property/) but the Methodist Circuit has advised us not to open our  Chapel & Community Centre for services of worship or mid-week activities yet. In the meantime the Property Steward has been issued with guidance on risk assessments and the necessary cleaning before re-opening.

The nearby Lumsdale Valley is also closed: see ‘Community News’ for more details.

May you stay well during these challenging times.

How to Find Us

Matlock Moor Methodist Church  is beside the Chesterfield Road (A632) out of Matlock at the junction with Quarry Lane between the turning for Highfields School and Matlock Golf Club. Its postcode is DE4 5LG.

There are bus stops close to the church for the X17 and 63 buses. Parking on the main road is difficult but visitors can be set down. There is a lay-by 140 metres away and there is a wide footpath on the other side of the road between there and the church. There is also usually parking in the lay-by in nearby Upper Lumsdale.

The surroundings

The church is beside the lane which ran up to the gritstone quarries in the pine-covered hills behind. If you are coming to the church you can also visit the beautiful and historic Lumsdale valley with its ruined mills and waterfall though note that it is accessible only on foot and there are no facilities.
