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.
