Picture of the Church

Our fervent prayer is for our church to grow in faith and openness to God's spirit as well as in numbers and your being here today answers our prayers.

We are an ecumenical partnership of the Methodist and United Reformed denominations and seek to be a place:

  • Where everyone is welcome
  • Where the joy of the love of God shines out
  • From where the Good News of the saving grace of Jesus Christ is spread
  • Where there is rest, refreshment and peace in a caring, praying community
  • Where Christian worship, prayer, Biblical teaching and service are paramount
  • Where the blessing of the Holy Spirit rests on everyone

and thereby follows the principles of the Methodist and United Reformed Churches.

Our Church is one of the Churches in the
Mid-Derbyshire Circuit.

May God bless you and keep you and let you know that whatever your circumstances YOU are loved as one of his children

Year of Challenge 2015

Extending our practice of having a theme for our Mission and Outreach activities (2013 - Family, 2014 - Friendship) the theme for 2015 is the Year of Challenge.

This can bring to mind many challenges that God's love for us brings each one of us:

The challenge to love God as He loves us;
the challenge to spread the Word of God;
the challenge to follow Jesus;
the challenge to forgive those who trespass against us;
the challenge to love our enemies.

The list is endless and we can perhaps already think of our own challenges that come to mind in our life.

The Mission and Outreach activities in 2015 are there to give us the opportunities to think about challenges in our faith journey and how we might rise to meet those challenges by sharing our faith with others, spreading the Gospel message and following Jesus in our daily lives.

The dates and details of our challenge events will be added to the Events & Activities page - please click the link on the left to find out more.

We hope that you will want to rise to the challenge and come along to these events, or come to our Church to find out more. Everyone is welcome.
