All Saints’ Church, Mackworth is a Grade I listed parish church in the Church of England in Mackworth, Derbyshire.

History

The church dates from the 14th century. It was restored and reopened by the Bishop of Lichfield on Thursday 13 November 1851. The reredos was designed by James K Colling of London and was added in 1878. The pulpit was obtained in 1896 and is made of Derbyshire alabaster and green Irish marble. The lectern was made in 1903 by Charles Lomas of Derby. On the evening of 3 December 2020, a large fire destroyed much of the church, including the pipe organ and the interior of the church. The cause is under investigation.
