ActivitiesThe Church membership and congregation hold regular social events in the community halls on the premises and elsewhere and these are open to anyone to attend.
There are usually two evening parties in each year, one in early January to celebrate the New Year and one at Harvest. The evenings include party games, quizzes, team competitions and music and dance. Everyone brings and shares food and usually there is more than enough to go around.
In addition the Church has held flower festivals where produce and floral displays are combined with refreshments and fellowship to raise funds for Church benevolence and specific projects.
There have been open days where all of the groups who use the Worship Centre or Halls have come together to let others know of their activities and to encourage each other.
The Church family has also been on local countryside walks, picnics, open air parties and coach visits to Christmas lights or the pantomime. There has also been overseas coach holidays arranged among the congregation.
Together with Members from other Circuit Churches, we have staged a number of Christmas performances on the theme of Gateway. These productions have brought together musicians, dancers, actors, costumiers, light & sound technicians to deliver God's message through entertainment.
Secular EventsThe Church Worship Centre and activity halls are also frequently used for a wide variety of events and performances as the individual halls or the whole building are let for the use of Christian and appropriate secular groups as a venue that is of service to the wider community.
The Worship Centre is one of the larger public rooms in Matlock and can seat over 250 people. Please see the Facilities & Location section of the web site for details.
Every visitor to our Church is made welcome for whatever reason they may come and our constant prayer is for all people to learn to love and follow Jesus. If coming to events held in our Church helps this, then we are blessed.
