Our Church History

Induction day for our pastor, David (far right).

The church started in the 1870’s when Christian railway men went street preaching in this area of Derby. People became Christians, and began to meet together as a church. Premises were rented, and the church was known in the early years as ‘The Derby Town Mission’. In the church you will see a plaque to an ‘Isaac Newton’ – not to be confused with the Isaac Newton! Under his tireless leadership the whole work grew and the church was able to purchase the current building on Traffic Street. The work has continued through times of both hardship and blessing right to the present day. It is now known as Castlefields Church after the local area of Derby.

Castlefields Church is a local independent evangelical church. A family of all ages and different backgrounds, from the UK and around the world, who meet to worship God and encourage one another in the Christian faith.
