It’s a very exciting time to be involved in the youth work at CCD. We're shifting our outlook to think about how, as a community of young people, we can impact the city around us and be part of God's Kingdom coming to Derby.
What We Do:
CCD's Vision is simple: we want to be Disciples who Go, Plant and Build God's church and Kingdom throughout Derby, the UK and the World. We share in that vision as young people too. We're looking to raise up youth that are wanting to Go, and that know what to Plant and are able to Build when they get there - wherever "there" may be!
In order to see our vision become a reality, we run quite a varied programme. We balance our time between focussing upwards on God, focussing inwards on each other, and focussing outwards towards our friends and the world we live in. We spend time being all gathered together for things like our residential and youth nights, as well as a monthly worship night called Awakening.
Parents, there are a few important documents for you on our Youth Resources Page, including our consent forms and a suggested Bible study guide for you to share with your youth.
Although some of the who’s, the where’s and the what’s of our work change, the why’s and how’s of our youth provision are always the same:
Why we do what we do:
We’re passionate about seeing young people be(come) Disciples. This is about them having and developing
- Life changing, personal relationships with God
- Support and friendships in all aspects of life growing up
- The desire and opportunity to make a positive difference in their world
How we do what we do:
All our work is centred around relationships:
- we welcome everyone as they are
- we spend time with, pray for and seek the best for them in all aspects of their lives
- we journey together with them and God into the unknown of where He wants to take us as individuals, small groups and a whole community.
