Our church has a clear mission to change our city with God's love. We believe that Derby should be a better place because our church is here! We are committed to working together to transform the atmosphere of our city through how we proclaim and demonstrate the good news of Jesus Christ. We aim to do this in three key ways:
Connecting with God is life changing! We are here to hold out life to the world around us. We exist to be a meeting place for those who are seeking to know more about God and His great love for them. The main way that we do this is through our Sunday service. We work hard to make our gatherings an opportunity to meet with the Lord and to experience his presence and power as we worship Him and apply His Word to our lives.
Jesus established the church so that we could grow together as the people of God and encourage and strengthen one other as we seek to follow Him together. We believe that people grow better in circles than they do in rows and therefore have developed a network of Life Groups that seeks to enable people to grow together in a circle that suits them. Our groups meet at various times and locations during the week and we encourage you to find one that suits you.
Thirdly we believe that the church has been established to serve others. The bible tells us that we have been created in Christ to do good works for God and for others and we believe that every disciple of Jesus should seek to use their, gifts, abilities and resources to serve others. We want to equip people for the work that Jesus has created and gifted them to do and seek to provide a context for them to use that gift within the life and ministry of our church.
