Church is far more than simply attendance on a Sunday. It is a place where we can love, worship, belong, serve, learn, change and witness together to grow in the faith and in the knowledge of Jesus so that we can attain the whole measure of the fullness of Christ.

Although coronavirus has stopped some of our regular activities there are still many ways to join in the life of the church. If you would like to have any more information about any of these ways to get involved then please do get in touch.

2:42 Groups

Our midweek groups give us an opportunity to study and pray together and grow deeper friendships with other people in the church.

With groups in Allestree, Littleover and Mickleover there is always a warm welcome for anyone wanting to get involved


Band of Brothers is the church’s men’s ministry which aims through fun and social events to build up and encourage men in their faith in Jesus Christ, help them be Christ-centred in all aspects of their lives and spur them on with confidence to reach others for Him.

Even in lockdown there are plenty of opportunities to encourage one another in one to one conversations even though the bigger social groups and activities may not be possible.


We all struggle at times and can we can all help others relate to God and mature faith and character through life’s experiences and seeing his hand at work.  We can assure others that they are loved through practical help, personal visits, prayer & encouragement from God’s Word.

If you need support, or would like to support others, then please do get in touch.


We understand that going to church for the first time can be a daunting experience and we’d love for every new person who comes to Woodlands to be welcomed and given every opportunity to join in at the level appropriate to their current situation.

With so many of our interactions now happening online our welcome is especially important and still a fantastic opportunity to meet and help those that are new. 


Many of us have an interest in technology especially as so much of our daily life is now dependent on it.  The past few months have taught us that Church life is no different and we use loads of technology from ZOOM meetings through to making weekly services available to as many people as possible.

Mission Support

We partner with a number of missionaries who have been called by God to work either in the UK or overseas. This partnership goes far wider than just financial support and includes: prayer, encouragement, and coordination of short term mission trips for members of the church family. If you would like help support one or more of our missionaries then please get in touch.
