As stated on the home page we are now holding two services each month in church and two services each month on Zoom.

We currently have morning prayers on Tuesdays at 9:30am and a fellowship meeting on Wednesday evenings at 7pm, both on Zoom. We are aiming to have one Sunday Service a month on Zoom – the next one is Sunday 3 May at 10am. You can get in touch with us to find out more.

Because of Covid 19 we have not been able to hold our social events (as listed below) but we are holding a stall on Wirksworth Market on Tuesday 27th October in the morning. We invite you to come along and support the stall. Money raised will be in aid of our church funds.

We were holding a varied programme of activities throughout the year for all ages, including coffee mornings, social evenings (e.g. slide shows, poetry and games nights), shared meals and a Christmas bazaar.
