Audio 1: Welcome
Welcome to Eyam Parish Church. My name is Mike Gilbert and I am the current rector of Eyam, a direct successor to William Mompesson. This is a historic church so please enjoy the murals of the tribes of Israel, the plague window, the plague register, Mompesson’s pulpit and chair, the Saxon font, sundial and many other features. The faith of 1665 and present since the church’s foundation continues today with lively worship, prayer, growth groups, youth services, Messy church and much much more. We seek to serve our local community and minister to those in need. Our youth worker visits schools in the whole area and we see ourselves as a resource for the whole Peak District. Our vision is to be a church with a heart for God and a heart for our community.
Audio 2: Invitation
Please do join us for our Sunday service which is normally at 11am where you will receive a warm welcome. Whilst you are here, enjoy the peace and sense the Holy Spirit bringing to mind the history of our church. Perhaps light a votive candle with a prayer or in memory of someone. Take time to reflect and pray and find the God who is seeking you and who died for us all on Good Friday.
The new Peak Pilgrimage finishes here so I would extend a special invitation to the pilgrims to sign the pilgrimage book, stamp their pilgrimage guide and stick in their Eyam verse. We hope that your pilgrimage has been a great experience and that you have met with God whilst you have travelled through the beauty of His creation. Do spend time in prayer and meditation in this Holy place.
The church is also the starting point for exploring Eyam village and also the Eyam pilgrimage so may God bless with you and meet with you whilst you are here.
