We are a group of 21 churches in and around Derby, including four ecumenical churches and a Chinese-language congregation plus Susanna Wesley House in Derby city centre Together with Christians of other churches, we seek to be true to our calling to live as disciples of Jesus Christ, and to witness to the healing power of his love and forgiveness as we serve him in our local communities.
Current UK Government guidelines permit churches to hold services but with social distancing and appropriate protective measures and many have limitations on numbers. Government guidance can be found here
