We are an Anglican church in the Diocese of Derby; as such we work together with partner churches in the city, primarily through City Vision - 'One Church, proclaiming and demonstrating the Kingdom of God throughout Derby'.

St Alkmund is the patron saint of Derby and the Victorian church stood on the site of the oldest Christian shrine in the city where there had been a succession of churches since 820AD. The present church building of St Alkmund's was consecrated on 18th March 1972 and is a replacement Church and hall complex for the building demolished in 1967 to make way for the inner ring road. 

In 1984  the parishes of St Werburgh and St Alkmund combined, with the fellowship of St Werburgh joining St Alkmund in the newer building.
