Creche is for babies and toddlers aged 0-3yrs and is held downstairs in our church building. In Creche we work on a free-flow system, with lots of toys available for the children to engage with, but we do come together for a story, singing and a snack. We want this space to be filled with God’s love and joy and have an atmosphere of fun and laughter. Our aim is for the children to know at a young age that God loves them, as we believe this is where the first bricks in the foundation of a child’s faith are built. Parents are welcome to stay with their child, but there is a creche team who will look after your child so you can stay in the service.

We also have a Baby Feeding room adjacent to the creche room, where parents are welcome to take their young babies if they are unsettled or need feeding during the service. 


Welcome to Kidzone for ages 3-11yrs. Here at DCC we want our children to build a strong faith, have good friendships with each other, and have fun. Our mission statement is ‘Passing on the Good News of Jesus by creating a fun and engaging experience which provides a foundation where they can begin to build a life of faith’. On a Sunday morning Kidzone is split up into two groups; Heroes (3-5yrs) and Legends (5-11yrs), that explore the same theme at different levels depending on age. Kidzone is based on the second floor of The Hope Centre.

  • Heroes

    Heroes is for children aged 3-5yrs (preschool and reception age). We aim to have purposeful play which is linked to the Bible story/theme. We want the children to expand their understanding of the theme and bring the stories to life through their own play and ideas, whilst also having lots of fun with their friends.

  • Legends

    Legends is for children aged 5-11yrs (School Years 1-6). We share Bible stories/themes in a visual and interactive way to help the children engage as much as possible. We want the children to be confident to share their ideas and views with the group through discussions & games, ask questions and pray for each other.

  • Kidzone Videos

    During the pandemic some of the Kids team produced weekly Kidzone videos which you can find at the bottom of this page, or on our Derby City Church YouTube channel. The team have produced some great content to help the children grow in their faith. Going forward, we will continue to release a Kidzone video for the children on the first Sunday of every month onto the YouTube channel.

  • The Base

    The Base, which is a Kids Club for children aged 7-11yrs, happens on a Friday evening between 6-7.30pm at The Hope Centre and is a space for the children to invite their friends to. We start the evening with a period of time where the children can play games and catch up with their friends, before gathering together to have a short thought that will encourage them in their faith.


Here you will find some great content to support and encourage your child's faith.
