Our Building

Our Buildings

The building is not listed. It is a modern building in excellent condition. It was intentionally designed as a multi-purpose building to be shared with the local community. The main room offers a large and flexible space accommodating up to 200 people and can be divided into 2 rooms. There are 2 other smaller rooms, office, kitchens and toilets. The building is used 7 days a week from 8am to 9pm for church and community groups (see below). It is wheelchair and pushchair friendly and has an accessible toilet.


Music and Worship

The main worship area is very flexible and is used for several events/ concerts etc each year

There is an electronic organ but most of the worship is lead by our band of singers and guitars


Groups, Courses and Activities

Discovery Club Meeting weekly during term time, this Christian after school club is for boys and girls aged 4-11years old from St Andrew’s Primary School. Each week we have around 25-30 children join us for games, fun, songs, crafts, Bible teaching and creative prayer. Discovery Club is lead by ‘Valley CIDS’ with volunteers from the church.

As a member of Churches Together in Dronfield and District (CTDD), St Andrew’s Church is involved in several outreach projects. A key strength of CTDD is the working together of the churches to run an Alpha course each year. Each church has contributed to make this town wide initiative work well. Members of all churches have helped to run these courses which have been well attended.

We have a number of bible study/ fellowship groups which meet in people’s houses.
Mondays: Men’s Meeting with a Meal - 12.30pm (Monthly)
Mondays: Ladies' Fellowship 1.45pm – Church Lounge
Wednesdays: ‘Growing in faith’ - 7.30 - 9.00pm
Thursday’s Bible Study - 8.00pm

We have a church lounge which doubles as a quiet/prayer room on Tuesdays alongside a weekly coffee morning.

Exercise club

Each year we hold holiday clubs which attract around 60 children. These clubs are lead by ‘Valley CIDS’ and staffed with volunteers from the church. At the end of each club we have a celebration to which parents and carers are invited as children share what they have done and the stories they have heard.

The Rendezvous Club
This meets monthly and provides a cooked lunch for some 30 elderly people. The meal is followed by either entertainment, a talk or quizzes. Our aim is to offer friendship and a warm welcome and to encourage those who do not get out very often a chance to talk and form friendships.

Scamps
Meeting weekly during term time, Scamps is an opportunity for parents and carers to bring their babies and toddlers to enjoy Bible stories/songs and a simple craft then spend time chatting over a cuppa.

St Andrew's Preschool uses our buildings during the term time 4 days a week,

We support several local projects. The Besom project, Terminus Initiative and the Freedom Project
