The Servant King

Join us through this Lent and Easter as we explore the Servant Songs in Isaiah, and the Easter narrative from Luke’s Gospel, and learn how the promises of the true Servant in Isaiah are fulfilled by the Lord Jesus, giving us comfort in the present, and great hope for the future. Come and marvel with us how all of Scripture points us to theServant King.

SDR-Bold I approach-medium

Bold I approach

Starting on April 14th, we will spend three weeks thinking about some of the big questions to do with prayer. Why pray? How does God answer prayer? What’s the point in praying if God is Sovereign? Come and join us as we wrestle with these important questions and as we seek to grow in dependence on our Heavenly Father.

Acts-sermon series medium

Sermon series in the book of Acts – starting in May

Starting on May 5th, we begin a series in Acts.

Something to look forward to and more information to follow.

What are people in our church saying…

“We generally attend Church in Stanton by Dale, but our Home Group is in Risley, giving us connections across the whole Benefice. The group is quite informal, always starting with coffee and a catch up followed by a discussion about the last teaching in Church, the lead is often shared between group members. The Home Group is a great way to meet with friends, new people and with God.”

Glynn and Elaine

“We really value youth work and our young people in the Benefice. ‘Heroes’ and ‘Impact’ are great places for asking questions and working through what it means to live for Jesus as a younger person in the 21st century.”

Phil Selby

“I enjoy acting out the Bible stories and doing the craft at JAM Club. The leaders are lovely!”
