Repton is the cradle of Christianity in the Midlands.   Christians have worshipped on this site since 653 AD, when Elfleda, the bride of Peada, son of King Penda of Mercia, introduced Christianity to his father's kingdom at Repton.   We welcome you to our website and invite you to share with our worship at St Wystan's Church

Visiting our three churches

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.
