Sinfin Moor Church……. A potted history!

We are a local ecumenical partnership (LEP) between the Anglican, Methodist and United Reformed (URC) Churches which has been established here since 1970. In its Anglican capacity it is the Parish Church of Sinfin Moor, in its Methodist guise it is the local Methodist Chapel and in its URC form it is the local Church. 

The Church operates as a single united congregation with all 3 partner denominations.  This means that we all worship together as a single church with our normal Sunday service taking place at 10.00 am each week.  We were the first single congregation LEP in Derbyshire and as far as we know, one of the first in the UK.  Last year we celebrated our 40thAnniversary.

The Church began life as a house church meeting at the Minister’s house.  We progressed to an initial building where we used 2 semi-detached houses built with no middle walls.  Subsequently the present building was erected and we have worshipped here since 1975. 

We consider ourselves a friendly welcoming Church and our Mission Statement says:

“We are a Christian Fellowship (including Anglican, Methodist and United Reformed ministries) committed to serving God and sharing the good news of Jesus with everyone.”

Baptisms

Christian baptism is about believing in God and belonging to the church family. Adults are baptised into the church family upon public profession of their faith in Jesus Christ. Children who are too young to make this profession for themselves can be baptised into the church family if their parents intend to bring them up within the church family and in a knowledge of the Christian faith. When older, the child will then be able to "decide for themselves" and profess their own faith in a service of confirmation. Those asking for their child to be baptised will be asked to attend a meeting where this is explained in more detail.

Thanksgivings 

For parents who want to celebrate the birth of their child we offer a service of thanksgiving. This act takes place during the main Sunday morning church services. 
Weddings, baptisms and thanksgivings can be arranged by contacting us using the Contact Us link on this website
