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.
Sunday morning 10:45am (10:00 for Sunday School) and Sunday evenings at 6:00pm. Refreshments are served before and after the morning service and after the evening service.
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. Finally we are a Presbyterian Church (part of the International Presbyterian Church), so our official doctrinal basis is the Westminster Confession of Faith.
Since the Pandemic we've been uploading all of our sermons to YouTube. You can view them here.
Our morning service is on Sundays at 10:45 am (10:00 for Sunday School) on Great Northern Road.
Our evening service is on Sundays at 6pm on Great Northern Road.
We run a creche each week as well as a number of age-targeted Sunday school classes before the morning service.
We have weekly Community groups that meet across the city
