Repton is the cradle of Christianity in the Midlands.   Christians have worshipped on this site since 653 AD, when Elfleda, the new bride of Paeda, son of King Penda of Mercia, introduced Christianity to his father's kingdom at Repton.   But while cherishing our past, we look to the future; recent years have seen major works to conserve the building and improve facilities.

We welcome you to our website and invite you to share with our worship at St Wystan's Church.

Tuesday 29th August to Friday 20th October
St Wystan's Church is closed for rewiring

Repton crypt, dating from the first half of the 8th century, is of exceptional interest.   Constructed perhaps as a baptistery, later a royal mausoleum, then a place of pilgrimage to St Wystan, it is one of the oldest and most important examples of Anglo-Saxon architecture to survive intact.   Sir John Betjeman described it as "holy air encased in stone".

Do explore the website.   As well as describing us and our beliefs, there are descriptions of the church and its history.  The site index, links below and links tables provide easy shortcuts.
