Our vision is for a Community, in the Community, for the Community. Burton Family Church is built upon small groups of people from all backgrounds meeting around the town who share God’s love with everyone they meet and make a positive impact in their neighbourhood.
Our weekly LifeGroups are continuing to grow with meetings on Tuesday and Wednesday nights. Matt & Lou lead the Tuesday group and John & Julie the Wednesday group.
We're really excited about what God is going to do in Burton. We are gathering a team of passionate worshippers who have a heart to serve God in this great town. Our vision is for a community built on small groups of people from all backgrounds meeting around the town that will encourage each other to fulfil their destiny in Christ Jesus through passionate worship; gifts of the spirit and applying Jesus' teaching to our daily lives.
We're excited to announce that in January 2018 we are looking to launch our first Sunday meetings as Burton Family Church:
Winshill Community Resource Centre - Canterbury Road, Winshill, Burton Upon Trent, DE15 OHD
We are in the early stages of planning our next Alpha Course. The Alpha course is an opportunity for anyone to explore the Christian faith in a relaxed, non-threatening manner over 7-10 thought-provoking weekly sessions. It's low key, friendly and fun. You're not on your own either. More than 29 million people worldwide have tried Alpha in 169 countries and 112 languages. The Alpha course runs in churches, homes, schools, universities and prisons. You can find out more by contacting us here.

Church planting is a process that results in a new (local) Christian church being established in a specific area. This is different from 'church development', where a new service, new worship center or fresh expression is created, that is integrated into an already established congregation. For a local church to be fully established, a church plant will eventually have a separate life of its own and be able to function without its parent body, even if it continues to stay in relationship through being part of a wider church family, network, or denomination.
As part of the ChristCentral and wider Newfrontiers family of churches we believe that one of the most effective ways of reaching people with the gospel is to plant (or begin) new churches, which in turn will also plant new churches.
We're also passionate about working with and supporting other local churches in Burton and surrounding areas and seek to partner with them in Christian outreach and activities.
Burton Family Church is a church plant of Jubilee Church Derby. Jubilee Church is a ChristCentral church, part of Newfrontiers, a member of the Evangelical Alliance and a Registered Charity, No. 1162660.

Burton upon Trent, also known as Burton-on-Trent or simply Burton, is a town straddling the River Trent in the east of Staffordshire; it is the largest town in the National Forest with a population of approximately 65,000.
Located in the Heart of England with its rich industrial heritage and international reputation as the capital of British brewing, Burton is a fantastic place to live or just to visit. Hand in hand with the industrial heritage, you will discover some of the most beautiful countryside in the Midlands with lush fields and pretty villages, award-winning restaurants and cosy pubs alongside the River Trent and the meandering canal network.
The town is home to Burton Albion FC and is also the location of the English National Football Centre (St George’s Park) which was opened in 2012 by the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge.
Burton is best known for its heritage in brewing and was once home to over a dozen breweries in its heyday. To this day beer is still brewed in the town by Marstons. Another famous local brand is Marmite - also located in the town, which owes its existence to the breweries. In fact, the manufacturing process was invented by accident in the late 19th Century by a German scientist, Justus Liebig. He discovered that brewer's yeast, could be concentrated, bottled and eaten. In 1902 the Marmite Food Company was founded in Burton-on-Trent, Staffordshire, where the raw material was readily available, a by product of Burton's successful brewing heritage.
Burton initially grew up around the Abbey, which was one of the most important religious centres in medieval Staffordshire. When Burton Bridge was constructed it became an important crossing point of the River Trent. It was the site of two important battles, first in 1322 when Edward III defeated the rebel Earl of Lancaster and also in 1643 when the royalists captured the town during the First English Civil War. The manor house was extended by Sir William Paget and his descendants, who also facilitated the extension of the River Trent Navigation to Burton. By the Early Modern Period Burton had grown into a busy market town.
