Today many visitors to the church are walkers setting off to or returning from the Pennine Way. At the other end of the Pennine Way is Kirk Yetholm in the Scottish Borders. Our churches made contact 4 years ago and two members of Edale’s PCC visited Kirk Yetholm for the rededication of the sanctuary following their extensive refurbishment of the Kirk. This meeting lead to the twinning of our two communities and our thanks to Edale Parish Council for completing this process.

Our church has undergone extensive repairs primarily to the roof. However, along side the building work members of the Parish are undertaking heritage and garden projects. Our next steps are to build an accessible toilet and reorder the back of church to make a more welcoming space for our visitors.

If you wish to follow our developments please go to our blog.

Edale church also keeps a presence on the ‘a church near you’ website…….



The Edale PCC safeguarding Lead is Mrs Rosie Rumble
