Glossop Parish Church in Old Glossop could be re-opening for private prayer and funerals.
The government is giving the go-ahead to all places of worship as part of an easing of the lockdown.
Before they can re-open procedures must be in place to ensure the building is Covid-19 secure.
In the case of a church, these have to be approved by the relevant Archdeacon.
Writing in his church newsletter, priest in charge, the Rev Dr David Mundy, says: “The measures have been approved by the PCC and approval is now being sought from the Archdeacon of Chesterfield. Further information will be provided in a newsletter and on social media.”
