St Edmund's Church, Holme Pierrepont is a parish church in the Church of England in Holme Pierrepont, Nottinghamshire.

The church is Grade I listed by the Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport as a building of outstanding architectural or historic interest.


The church has had a long association with Holme Pierrepont Hall.

It is now part of the combined parish of All Hallow's Church, Lady Bay.
