Church of England Diocese of Derby Spondon

About Us

We are a large friendly parish church where we take inclusion seriously.  We are part of the Inclusive Church Network and celebrate God's love in all its diversity.  We are LGBTQI friendly - and although we will get it wrong, we are a learning community, always changing and growing welcoming all regardless of age, gender, orientation, addiction or disabiilty.

We aim to be:

A welcoming and inclusive Church – We respect everyone equally. A loving and hopeful Church – we recognise that we are all ‘in recovery’. We are a healing community and we try to love unconditionally. A caring and serving Church – part of our calling is to serve the city but particularly those most in need; the vulnerable and the marginalised. A Church which gives thanks to God in celebration of all that we have received through Jesus – We sing, we pray, we celebrate our life and our blessings.
