The parish of Tansley is a combined benefice with the parish of All Saints, Matlock Bank and is in the Deanery of Wirksworth and the Diocese of Derby.

Tansley village is situated 2 miles East of Matlock in Derbyshire on the A615 Matlock to Alfreton road. The postcode is DE4 5FE

In 1839 Tansley was part of the parish of Crich. At that time it is recorded in a petition by the churchwardens and other parishioners of the parish of Crich that ........

“the hamlet of Tansley contains a population of upwards of 500 souls and is distant from the Parish Church (of Crich) of four miles and that it is extremely inconvenient for the inhabitants of the said hamlet to attend divine service in the said parish of Crich, and in order to provide some church accommodation and aid for spiritual wants of the people residing therein considerable funds have been raised by voluntary contributions together with other grants to build a chapel”

The church was started in 1839, built of stone quarried locally, and opened 1 year later dedicated to the Holy Trinity.

Aim of the church

"Putting Christ at the heart of our Church & our Church serving at the heart of our community"
