10.30am - 12.15am
It can be daunting going to a church service for the first time or after having been away for a long while. We try to make our Sunday services as welcoming and understandable to the newcomer as we can.
We hope the summary below helps explain a little of what you can expect to happen at any of our Sunday services.
We meet every Sunday at 10.30 at County Hall, Matlock and the location details are here.
What does a Sunday service look like?
Each service is kicked off at 10.30am by a time of singing songs of worship led by a band, and then after a short welcome, the speaker for that week will teach a message from the Bible. Visit our talks section to view past messages.
Following the message from the bible (which normally takes around 40 minutes). In response to the message that has been brought, we will then stand together and have another short time of singing songs to God and often they'll be opportunity at this point to receive prayer from one of our team.
Also during the service, members of the church will have an opportunity to give money into a general offering for the church (though many will do this through standing orders), but as a newcomer, please do not feel obliged to do this - this is for people who call Church in the Peak their home church.
After each service, there will be tea and coffee served where there is plenty of opportunity to chat to people. There will be people dotted around with Connect badges, if you’re new and would like to chat to someone.
We also have an information table if you would like any information about Church in the Peak or about things that happen during the week.
