Scroll down for more information about exciting one-off events that are coming up in the life of our church and community.
You are invited into a story full of intrigue, mystery and deception...
Scenes will play out before you, and along with the other detectives on your table you must use your sleuthing skills to work out who committed the crime.
Tickets are just £2.50 each and are available from the church, or book a table for 10 people for just £20.
Our family friendly, craft filled, all singing, all dancing nativity service! Come along dressed as a character from the nativity (don't worry, we have some costumes if you can't find anything) and enjoy an afternoon filled with crafts, drama, dancing, singing and much more including refreshments. All welcome.
On Sunday we will be holding our annual toy service during our Fluid Church morning gathering. Every year we donate new toys to Derby City Mission who distribute them to families and homes locally who will be unable to give gifts to their children. If you would like to contribute please bring new toys. These will then be collected on Monday morning from St Alkmund's.
We'd also LOVE for you to bring, or come dressed as, your favourite toy (or even just one that you really like). And it doesn't matter how old you are either!
This coming Sunday is our harvest festival! We will be continuing with our Ordinary Grace series working through the book of Ruth and encourage you to bring donations of non-perishable products for our Storehouse community who meet on a Friday morning.
There will also be, for the first time, a Kids Praise Party in the morning at 10AM! Children are encouraged to bring non-perishable products with them as well.

On Sunday night, at our Easter Sunday Liminal gathering we will be hosting a very special service called 'Stations of the Revolution'. We will explore together the journey Jesus took from life, to death, to life again and how this story may have become so gentrified that we no longer live within it.
All are welcome to join us as we take a radical look at the most radical revolution ever to have taken place in history.
In the afternoon on Good Friday we will be running a multi-sensory space, giving people the opportunity to walk through the Easter story. You can do this on your own, with a group of friends or with your family. It is suitable for all ages and all stages, however we do suggest that if you are bringing children to remain with them for the duration of your time with us.
It is a free drop-in space, so feel free to swing by at any time between 2 and 3 pm.
The Annual Parochial Church Meeting will take place on Wednesday March 22nd at 7PM. This is a public meeting reviewing the year just gone and thinking about moving forward into next year. We will be electing and voting for churchwardens and the PCC. Please note that if you are not on the electoral role you will be unable to vote for a number of items.
These are always exciting evenings which are about vision, strategy and reality. Come along to find out what has been going on in the life of our church over the last year.
