Christ Church, King Sterndale

Amongst the fields and rolling dales

There sits a village church

It is a jewel in King Sterndale

From which great things emerge


The door is always open here

For visitors and guests,

Walkers who have explored the land

Can pause for needed rest


Idyllic space outside the church

And inside ribbons wave

We're joyful, friendly, welcoming,

We love to sing God's praise


'Cake Ministry' is what we do

For all folks far and near,

If passing by, do stop and look,

You may just find God here


This congregation is the Church,

Active as busy bees,

There's room for more, there's space for you,

Come try us, if you please.



Christ Church King Sterndale was founded 160 years ago to serve the villages of King Sterndale, Cowdale and Staden in the Parish of Buxton. Today the church welcomes many visitors from Buxton and surrounding areas who like to worship in this beautiful historic country church. The church is deceptively large inside, seating up to 100 people.

A haven of peace in a busy world, Christ Church is always available for visitors to pray or to get in touch with God.

A beautifully remote rural church, a little off the beaten track, but nonetheless a popular stop-off point for ramblers and other visitors.
