We are a growing group of Christians who love to worship God together each week working out of these historic buildings on Hill Street in Swadlincote . We aim to serve God as missionary disciples in and around this area through a variety of activities and worship.
We won’t always get everything right, but many testify to the love and friendship they have found in fellowship with each other as we worship and serve our Lord and work together in all sorts of ways during the week. Perhaps you are just passing through the area and are looking for a place to worship one Sunday, or maybe you have just moved into the area and are wondering where to settle. Perhaps you have lived around here for a while and have begun to look for a place to worship, a fellowship to welcome you, activities to join? Why not call in one Sunday? Take things at your own pace – we’d be delighted to welcome you.
Our Sunday congregation has grown in recent years to an average of 50-70 people each week with all generations represented, including a number of young families. On some special-event Sundays and other days we have many more than this – special events like concerts (ranging over recent years from Rock Concerts, through charity Pantomimes and Schools Choirs, to the annual performance in December of Handel’s Messiah by joint choirs drawn from across the area) can see our galleries in use and congregations of up to three or four hundred.
A whole range of people young and old use our halls and rooms throughout the week: we are glad to provide a valuable meeting place for many local groups in addition to our own activities.
Our growing congregation comes from all over South Derbyshire, drawing people from Swadlincote, Newhall, Woodville, Church Gresley, Midway, Burton and beyond. Some people are new to the area and others have lived in this region all their lives. Together we believe that we make up a pretty special family under God where everyone is valued and each is loved.
Do look in on us one week – there will always be room for more!
