Our congregation is made up of people of all ages and from a variety of backgrounds, some who have been Christians for most of their lives, some who have just started on their journey, and others who are finding out whether they want to begin the journey!
We meet in Hadfield, (Near Glossop), every Sunday at 10:30. We use a mix of modern worship songs and some older hymns (albeit often in a different style than they were originally sung!), and the meeting tends to be informal with opportunity for people to express themselves, pray, and listen to what we believe God is saying, all with a view to then living out our lives in the abundant and exciting way promised in the Bible (John 10:10).
From time to time we have a ‘café style’ church service where we invite friends, neighbours and families to share breakfast with us, worship in different ways, and explore some key messages in the Bible.
The church has been established in its current form for many years and we look forward to the future as we seek to learn more about God and His word, help and encourage each other, and look to take something of God’s heart, love and Spirit into the communities in which we live, work and socialise. We know that God makes a difference for the better in peoples’ lives irrespective of their current situation, and we like to share our experiences of Him (Psalm 145:4).
We are blessed with a wonderful building on Station Rd, Hadfield where we meet on Sunday mornings and Wednesday evenings, and also host other community events through the week. But of course the church is not the building, it is the people, and if you come along to see what we are all about, you are guaranteed a warm and friendly welcome, lively praise and worship, friendship and support, and encouragement (and maybe a challenge or two) from the Bible.

Children & Youth
We believe that our church is like a family and we welcome families into our church.
We offer Sunday school classes for different age groups within our Sunday morning service. We have a dedicated team of volunteer Sunday school teachers who have all been approved by the church leadership, with those working with the younger children holding DBS certificates.
We follow a fun programme of age appropriate teaching and activities.
We also have an after-school activity group usually held once a month, for games, fun and fellowship.
Sharing God's love with our local community is important to us, especially through friendship and food. Our Tuesday coffee mornings are open to all, and we have a wonderful team of volunteers who monthly provide a free mid-week Community Meal and Saturday Community Breakfast, and if you join us, you will be sure of a warm welcome as well as some delicious home-cooked food.
We are also very blessed to work closely with local group Hadfield Coming Together who run a weekly food distribution service and lunch open to all on Thursdays, children's school holiday packed lunches and activities, and other community projects.
