Do good things for the city I sent you to. Pray to the Lord for the city you are living in, because if there is peace in that city, you will have peace also. Jeremiah 29:7 (ERV)

We love Derby! LoveDerby is an initiative run by Jubilee Church to demonstrate this in practical and tangible ways. As a church that meets right in the centre of the city we want to make a difference to the whole of our city. We aim to do this by loving, serving and connecting.

Love. Serve. Connect.

Actively loving by being available to people
Actively serving by meeting people’s practical needs
Actively connecting by partnering with other organisations in the city
Our hope is that this will spill out into everyday life right across the city. We are here to make a difference and demonstrate God’s love to the city in practical ways.

LoveDerby Days

Four times a year instead of meeting in our usual venue, we will spend time out in the community, serving our city. The aim is to gather in smaller volunteer teams in various neighbourhoods where we can make an impact. We're looking to partner with various projects and initiatives across our city so that we can make a difference in places which really need it.

2021 - 2022 Review

Following the COVID-19 lockdowns we felt stirred afresh as a church that we should be more involved in serving our city. We love Derby and as a result of this we looked at how we could demonstrate that in practical and tangible ways.

With this in mind we employed a member of staff a day per week to help plan and prepare us to run projects which would launch in November 2021.

Between November 2021 and November 2022 we were able to mobilise 226 people, giving a total of 653 working hours which were invested in various different projects across our city. We put together a short summary document which details some of the projects we undertook over that period.

Our hope is that this initiative will continue to grow and develop in the years ahead. This is something that’s at the heart of who we are as a church and we’re excited about what the future holds.
