Welcome

Christ Church Derby is a friendly, evangelical church in the centre of Derby. We have been brought together by God through the gospel, and enjoy meeting together to praise him each Sunday. We'd love to welcome you, whether you're a committed Christian or just beginning to explore the Christian faith.

Latest news


We've just bought a new building!

We've bought an old scaffolding warehouse on Great Northern Road in Derby. It's been turned into a church and now we've moved in.

What we do


Our main service is on Sundays at 4pm on Great Northern Road.

We run a creche each week as well as a number of age-targeted Sunday school classes at the same time as the service.

After church most Sundays the student group meets for food followed by Bible study.

We have a weekly Bible Study and prayer meeting on Great Northern Road. We're hoping to start up Community Groups in the coming term as well.

What we believe


Put most simply we are a Christian Church, so we try and live according to God's word, the Bible.

But often it helps people to know a little more about what we believe the Bible teaches. So we'd also happily say:

We are a Conservative Evangelical church. A good summary of Conservative Evangelical belief can be found here

Finally we are a Presbyterian Church, so our official doctrinal basis is the Westminster Confession of Faith.







Where we meet

Sundays, 4pm, Great Northern Road
