Welcome to Community Church Derby

Community Church Derby is a 'family on mission together' transforming networks, neighbourhoods and nations one life at a time. We are a Christian church committed to serving the city of Derby and part of a growing sphere of churches in the East Midlands and beyond!


Sunday Meetings

We are passionate about the presence of God and our Sunday morning and evening gatherings reflect this. We gather at the centre with an expectation to encounter God as his family together and to be equipped to take his presence to our schools, workplaces and communities during the week.

We love to gather as a whole church and Sundays are a focal part of life at Riverside. Our gatherings help us to connect as a diverse yet united family to worship, listen to God’s word and pray. 


Does God exist? Looking out on the world this is a perfectly reasonable question. At Community Church Derby we want to create spaces where people can bring questions like this and explore possible answers.

Alpha is for anyone who is curious. The talks are designed to encourage conversations and explore the basics of the Christian faith in a friendly, open and informal environment. 
No questions are out of bounds and you are free to discuss as much or as little as you wish.

Join us for our next Alpha...

Our next Alpha starts Tuesday 9 May, 7.30pm - 9.30pm

We want to see God’s Kingdom breakthrough in the lives of young people in Derby. We want young people at Riverside to know God through encountering him in all aspects of life, to know who they were created to be and how to show others the love and power of God. 

CCD kids

We believe in making disciples of all ages - so that children and their families know Jesus and feel a part of God’s great story. Children are welcome to our mid week parents and children groups as well as Sundays at our 10:30 gathering.

CCD Youth
