Walbrook Epiphany (inaugurated on 28th January 1996) brings together four former parishes to minister to this inner city area of around 25,000 people or many different ethnicities and traditions.  St Augustine’s, which has become the main parish church while St Thomas’s is being renovated, has an open evangelical tradition, and we see strength in the breadth and diversity of the spirituality we have brought together from all four former parishes.

St Augustine’s is a large pleasant building (completed 1908) which has been re-ordered over the years to create a carpeted welcome area and a meeting room with kitchen and toilet facilities.  The pews have been replaced with chairs to create a large flexible space for multi-purpose use.  A new sound system and projection screen have been installed.

Having four former parishes brings the blessing and challenge of a number of different buildings that offer a range of opportunities as bases for potential outreach and worship. Some of these buildings are used as community centres.

St Augustine’s office space houses the Operations Manager and a separate charity (supported by the church) called ‘Restore’ that offers a ministry amongst sex workers within Derby. It is also the temporary base of the Derby City Deanery Administrator.

St Augustine’s Church hall hosts groups including on Tuesday lunchtimes a Lunch Club for older people living on their own, and on Wednesday mornings The Gathering Place Café and Jubilee Project.

St Augustine’s Crypt (Watson Rooms) provide a venue for a day centre on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays for adults with learning difficulties. 

Our Parish Vision:

We believe God has called us to serve his kingdom purposes by giving priority to outworking the principles drawn from God’s character as revealed in Psalm 68:5-6. 

Recognising our own brokenness and need, and rejoicing in God’s saving grace, we seek to:

Be a father to the fatherless – We will seek out the lost and share the Father’s love so that together we may know God as Father and live out our redeemed status as children of God Be a defender of widows – We will defend and support the poor and vulnerable Set the lonely in families – We will reach out in blessing to others, and will include those who respond in our church family Lead out the prisoners with singing – We will support people in finding their purpose in serving God so that they might find freedom from the idols that hold them captive

 

This vision can be summarised in our mission statement to be:

                                “A loving community, following Jesus and serving Normanton”
