St. Michael and All Angels, Hathersage

This church features one of the Diocese of Derby banners – ‘Church open to experience and explore’. It is open each day.There is a guide book, local information books, guided walks, post cards, Christian books and local history books. There is even a children’s guide which is very good. So few churches bother with these. This one is in a cartoon style and was obviously a labour of love by Kathleen Tetley who wrote and drew it. It also explains the villages link with Charlotte Bronte.

21 visitors had signed the book in July. Some lights were left on to help the visitor see what was what. A well used prayer book is available to enter prayer requests in to. The memorial book was open on the days date but there is a folder giving a photo of each page of the book so that people can look up the relevant day – a good idea. There was also something else I hadn’t seen before here. A prayer ‘station’ for those who had suffered hurt from child hood’. There are pebbles to lay down as a way of praying. Imaginative and very moving. It was obviously well used.

St. Michael & All Angels is a good church to visit and and I rate it as very good.

The church website is a good one at http://www.stmichaelandallangelshathersage.org.uk/ but no visitor information is there apart from how to find the church.
