St. Peter and St. Paul's Church, Mansfield is a parish church in the Church of England located in Mansfield, Nottingham.

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


The church dates from the early 12th century. Chantry chapels and the clerestory were added in the 15th or 16th centuries, and the spire dates from 1699.


There are eight bells in the tower dating from 1603. The bells were cast in 1948.


The 3-manual church organ was acquired in 1970 from Clare College, Cambridge and re-consecrated at the end of 2000. It was substantially altered and enlarged by Noel Mander of London before installation in the south chapel in 1971.
