Who are we?
Castlefields Church is made up of people who live, work and study in and around Derby . The church is a group of people of all ages, from the UK and around the world, who meet to worship God together. To meet some of us see People Profiles.
What do we believe?
We believe that the Bible is God's good news to all people. The world is full of trouble because we have all rebelled against God. The Bible tells us that Jesus Christ came into the world to rescue us. He came so that we could be forgiven and have a good relationship with God, who made us. For more information see our Statement of Faith.
Who can come?
Everyone is welcome. You don't need to be a Christian. Just come along to watch and listen. Hear teaching from the Bible. Learn about Jesus Christ. Ask questions. Talk to others.
What do we do?
The work that we do today is based around the core activities of:
We also seek to share the good news about Jesus Christ with others through open air preaching, Christianity Explored courses and services for the elderly. We recognise that we are just a small part of God's church worldwide and are involved in the support of a number of missionaries both in the UK and overseas. For more information see Church Activities.
When did Castlefields Church begin?
The church started in the 1870's when Christian railway men went street preaching in this area of Derby. People became Christians, and began to meet together as a church. Premises were rented, and the church was known in the early years as 'The Derby Town Mission'. In the church you will see a plaque to an 'Isaac Newton' - not to be confused with the Isaac Newton! Under his tireless leadership the whole work grew and the church was able to purchase the current building on Traffic Street. The work has continued through times of both hardship and blessing right to the present day. It is now known as Castlefields Church after the local area of Derby.
