My son and daughter attended the pre christening class- very informative and well planned. The christening itself was conducted on a Sunday afternoon outside of the usual service hours. All were made to feel welcome.

If you a driving between Derby and Stoke, take a detour to Cheadle to visit this example of Victorian Gothic Revival. Designed by A W N Pugin and financed the Earl of Shrewsbury, this church is beautiful but also a bit over the top.
