We love to welcome children of all ages to our Benefice. We know there are challenges bringing little ones along, but they are always welcome. We have creche facilities in all 3 churches, where you can still hear the service too!

Whether you’re a mum, a dad, a grandparent or child-minder, you will find a friendly welcome with plenty of space, opportunity to chat and some of the finest refreshments around! Each week there is an interactive Bible story, craft and plenty of time for children to enjoy playing and meeting new friends.

Groups at SDR Churches

SDR-Homegroup-2

Home Groups

Each week we have a number of ‘Home Groups’ running across our three locations. They provide an opportunity to get together midweek to enjoy each other’s company, support and encourage one another; but most importantly, spend some time learning from the Bible and praying together.

Home Groups are a great place to be to get to know people and a wonderful way to grow in your faith. You can be certain of a warm welcome and some of the best tea and cakes in Derbyshire! However, Home Groups are not there as a replacement for church, and so we encourage people to join our church first before we link you with a group.

Tea and Company

Tea and Company is our twice monthly group for any who would appreciate a warm welcome, great conversation and delicious refreshments! Occasionally there are visiting speakers, and there is always a thought from the Bible shared from the front at Easter and Christmas.

Tea and Company meets once a month, on the 1st Wednesday of the month at the Old School in Stanton-by-Dale (3:00-4:30pm), and once a month at ‘The Gateway’ in Dale Abbey on the 3rd Friday of the month (3:30-5pm). You would be very welcome!
