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

Repton is the cradle of Christianity in the Midlands.   Christians have worshipped on this site since 653 AD, when Elfleda, the new bride of Peada, 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.

St Wystan's Church Conservation Management Plan
Our Conservation Management Plan arises from St Wystan's designation by the Church Buildings Council and Historic England as a Major Church of special significance, one of 300 out of about 15,000 English parish churches.   Information about the Major Churches designation can be found here.

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.
