The Benefice of Swanwick and Pentrich
St Andrew's and St Matthew's


   Welcome!    

We are a community whose aim is to share the good news of Jesus’ love for all people through worship, Bible study, prayer, friendship, fellowship and fun.
If there’s anything you can’t find here or any further information you need please

PLEASE HAVE A LOOK AT THE "OLD SCHOOL HOUSE" PAGE.  In our main ground floor meeting room we now have projection facilities via TV monitor.  In addition we have two smaller meeting rooms on the first floor, where toilet facilities and kitchenette are also available.   For bookings please contact us via the website or our Facebook page. 

Thank you to the  many people who came to Martyn Noble's recital in St. Andrew's on 10th February - in spite of the awful weather! We were treated to a very varied programme and wonderful playing, with dear and familiar music of the Bach/Handel/Elgar and Walton/Widor kind,  plus "stretching the boundaries" to quote Martyn with Dave Brubeck and Led Zeppelin no less.  "Stairway to Heaven" is not only entirely appropriate in church surroundings but also sounds superb on the organ. 

DIARY NOTE re LENT LUNCHES AT THE OLD SCHOOL HOUSE.  The  Lent lunches this year are on February 18th, March 4th and March 18th and will consist of soup and crumble.  If you would like to attend please get in touch through the website or Facebook page or any church member - it helps if we have an idea of numbers.
