We have many fellowship groups for all ages, ranging from prayer evenings to social groups to worship groups. Some of these groups have continued through the Covid-19 pandemic in different ways and some have taken a hiatus. If you are interested inr groups for children and young adults click here
"Maybe Group meets at other venues than the Church and we enjoy a variety of activities including theatre trips, walks, eating out or anything else social.
It is a social fellowship for Church adults to get together and simply enjoy an activity in one another’s company as friends of Christ Jesus.
Events happen every few months responding to opportunities and seasons. There is a looseness that enables spontaneity & mystery.
We haven’t been meeting since lockdown and now writing this it is sparking an interest to see whether we can meet online for some socialising. Maybe we will."

House Groups Zoom
"We are a small group of ladies who meet weekly for fellowship and bible study. Pre Covid we met on a Wednesday evening at the home of one of our members and after a cuppa and a catch up we would spend about 1 hour on a bible study. We are open to using a variety of materials to help us in our bible study from using study books based on specific books in the bible, others on specific themes, videos and reflective material. We end by discussing prayer needs that we then commit to pray for through the coming week.
During COVID we have moved online using Zoom. Our Zoom meetings are held on a Monday rather than Wednesday evening and are shorter in length but we follow a similar format.
We are open to new members and have enjoyed some old members returning online who felt unable to continue coming out in an evening when we met in person."

The Wesley Guild
"The Wesley Guild was initially established by the Methodist Church over 100 years ago and has attracted a wide range of ages from all denominations.
We meet fortnightly in the Community Halls at 2.30pm on Tuesday afternoons. The programme runs from September to May. The Guild is open to all age groups and to all denominations in the Matlock and Circuit area. It provides spiritual and devotional meetings with fun and friendship with a variety of speakers giving interesting talks as well as other devotional studies. The Guild also supports the Nigerian Health Project which was formed in 1992 to establish health facilities across Nigeria.
Our President is Rev Helen Penfold who usually opens our first meeting with a Holy Communion Service. A warm welcome always awaits!"

Thursday Zoom Coffee Break
"Coffee Break was set up for people to meet for a chat on Zoom during the pandemic as we can’t meet in person. Everyone is welcome to join in for about half an hour’s company on Thursday mornings at 10.30 am. Sometimes we talk a little longer but feel free to leave early if you need to. Please contact me via the website for login details."
Holy spirit Morning
"Our Holy Spirit Workshop which is held on the 2nd Saturday of each month, is a chance to join together to discuss and experience the gifts of the Holy Spirit.
Discussions are led by various members of the church and circuit on a variety of subjects to deepen our understanding of the gifts and blessings that we receive from God and how we use these throughout our lives.
Why not join us to see the Spirit moving in the room.
It is such a lovely and peaceful feeling."
This group is currently not running.
Streams of Worship
"Streams Of Worship is a worship group that runs from Matlock Methodist and United Reformed Church. We complement worship with creative and alternative activities such as dance, drama, puppetry and interpretive readings.
We take part in leading worship in Churches throughout the Mid Derbyshire circuit. As well as in Christmas and Easter productions.
Our group is not essentially a youth group but we welcome anyone from year nine up, and there is no upper age limit, you just need to be eager.
Due to the nature of this group we have no choice but to be on hiatus, we hope to be back together soon and welcome any interest."
