Here are a few of the commonly asked questions. If the answer you're looking for isn't here, please ask by sending us a message via the button below.
WHEN CAN I VISIT? ...
We currently operate a morning & an evening service every Sunday starting at 1030am & 6.30pm.
HOW DO I FIND ST WERBURGH’S? . . .
St Werburgh’s can be found on the corner of Friar Gate and Cheapside (DE1 1BU). We are located in the “Cathedral quarter” and are on several major bus routes running down Friar Gate.
IS PARKING AVAILABLE? . . .
The closest car park is Parksafe right next to the church on Bold Lane (DE1 3NT), but it isn’t cheap. There is free parking on the surrounding roads after 4pm on a Sunday. The car park on Abbey Street (about 2 minute walk from church) is also free from 4pm on a Sunday.
IS THERE STEP FREE ACCESS?
Yes, currently we are using the original doors closest to Friar Gate street for this access.
WHAT CAN I EXPECT? . . .
Church is meant to be enjoyed not endured. There will be uplifting music, friendly people and teaching that we believe will encourage, provoke you to think and that is practical in whatever stage of life you are currently in.
There isn’t one, but in case you are worried, mostly people dress very casually.
WHAT KIDS/YOUTH GROUPS ARE AVAILABLE? . . .
Kids work is available at 10.30am service and until the renovation of the mezzanine rooms they meet midway through the service at the United Reformed Church on Becket Well Lane.
Youth work occurs midweek and during the morning service, for more information: https://stwderby.org/youth
WHAT EVENTS ARE AVAILABLE FOR NEWCOMERS? . . .
If you are completely new to church or haven’t been for years then Alpha is a great way to find out more. If you are new to us as a church then do share how you would like to be involved.
CAN I STILL COME IF I HAVE DOUBTS? . . .
Yes, for sure! Come as you are, with your questions and concerns, and feel free to ask anything! Many people who have doubts find Alpha a great place to begin exploring some of their questions.
CAN I JOIN A TEAM? . . .
Absolutely! We love using our gifts to build God's church. If you would like to get involved on a team please get in touch with us or sign up online.
