  • I am proudly a member of Derby Road Baptist Church where I believe Jesus has called me to serve Him and His people. Being a foreigner in this country I don’t have many friends nor family around or at least I didn’t until God brought me to DRBC where I have found many friends but more importantly a family. A family that represents many nations and cultures but with one head and with one goal, Jesus and His glory. I am grateful to God for giving me and my family a home and a family at DRBC and I look forward to seeing how Jesus transforms this local family of God with each passing day.

    Sermons Preached by Ashkan Sarmadi

    Being part of DRBC family is a real blessing. I am thankful to God that He is keeping me close to Him and strengthen my faith day by day together with my brother and sister at DRBC.
    I am thankful to God that I am able to worship Him with the believers at Derby Road, who are a real family to me. It is amazing what the Lord Jesus has done for me in dying for my sins and giving himself up so that I can get to know him. In this church I feel I can learn more about what it is to serve God and to have God as the most important part of my life.
    Attending DRBC is a spiritual stepping stone in my life. The teachings of this church emphasise the glory of God in the scriptures, and in our personal lives. I did not know what a reformed Baptist church was until I spent some time here. However during my time here, I feel that I have grown smaller and that God has grown bigger. This is a clear sign to me that I am walking in the right direction.

Sunday Morning Activities

Crèche

  • Agesbaby or child up to 6 years old
  • LeadersThis event has the following leaders:

If you have a baby or child up to 6 years old you will find you are not alone – there are a good number of little people at Derby Road! There is a creche available where you can take your child, or leave them with the leaders so that you can go back into the church and listen to the sermon (helpers will come and collect you if your baby/toddler does not settle).

There are games and books for the very young – otherwise all children listen to a Bible story, sing songs and do activity sheets which reinforce the Bible story. The children also have squash and fruit before ‘tidy up time’ and their return to parents.

Sunday School is for children age 7 to 11. Children stay with their parents at the start of the main meeting as we worship God together. The leader will make it clear when children should go out to Sunday School.

Sunday School starts with everyone sat together to share about their week and pray. Then there is an interactive lesson based on a series from the Bible and an accompanying worksheet. The aim is to teach the children about what God says he is like in the Bible, and what he has accomplished through his son Jesus Christ.

Bible Class

  • Agesages 11+
  • LeadersThis event has the following leaders:
  • Sermons Preached by Felix Kamaliza

For children age 11+, we follow a course of Bible studies covering all the main people and events in the Old and New Testaments. This is done by reading the Bible together and discussing the passages using study guides to assist. Bible Class meets in the second half of the main Sunday service.
