A very warm welcome to Whittington Moor Methodist Church

About the building

The church is situated about two miles from Chesterfield town centre, close to the northbound A61 and just off the Whittington Moor roundabout. We are close to Whittington Moor GP surgery on one side and Whittington Moor Nursery & Infant Academy on the other. The church building opened in November 1981 and was the coming together of St John's Road and Sheffield Road Methodist Churches, both of which were demolished to make way for the regeneration of the Whittington Moor area and building of the A61 dual carriageway. Over the years we have welcomed friends from other local churches too.

At Whittington Moor, we believe that we are called to:

1. Love God in response to His love for us, which is our firm foundation.

2. Love each other as a Christian community, sharing our lives with on another, demonstrating love as we bear with one another, accepting our differences and seeking to work together as we move forward.

3. Love our neighbours by working with and in the community, serving the needs of others, and so fulfil the command of Jesus.


Sunday Worship starts at 10:30am and is mainly traditional, with a monthly communion service and occasional café style worship. We serve tea and coffee after service on 3rd Sunday of each month.

Our minister at Whittington Moor is Rev'd Margaret Mwailu. You can find her contact details on the Contact Us page.
