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. Jubilee Church Derby is here to make a difference and demonstrate God’s love to the city in practical ways.


Our current long term LoveDerby projects include Smile and supporting Faith, Hope & Enterprise.

LoveDerby Day an initiative of LoveDerby & DCFC

Foodbank Food Collection - Friday 3rd April 2015

On Good Friday (3rd April 2015), we were privileged to partner with Derby County Football Club in once again holding "LoveDerby Day" a LoveDerby Project, at the iPro stadium, Derby.

As part of our LoveDerby initiative we were able to stage a large food collection at the iPro stadium prior to kick off. Our other partners included: the The Foodstore Network, Derby City Mission and Chester Green Methodist Church.

Food Collection

DCFC urged its supporters to help play their part in any way possible and they were very generous. We were able to collect 59 crates of food, which amounts to around 2,000 items!

All the food collected was distributed by the LoveDerby Project team to a number of food banks across the City. These include Foodbanks run by: St Alkmund's (Storehouse), Community Church Derby (Storehouse), The Hope Centre, Alvaston Churches Foodbank, Women’s Work, The Dove Project, Derby City Mission & Jubilee Church Derby.

Cash Collection

For the first time this year we also took up a cash collection to support those working with underprivileged children, the homeless and the disadvantaged in the city of Derby & surrounding areas. The collection raised £738.09 so we rounded this up to £740 and this has now been distributed to the following charities / non profits:

  • Alvaston Churches Foodbank - £240 - (to help them set up an accredited Job Club)
  • Faith, Hope & Enterprise - £100 - (to support their work with vulnerable & disadvantaged people)
  • Osmaston Road Baptist Church - £200 - (for kitchen upgrades - their kitchen serves nearly 22,000 meals per year, through a variety of different programs to homeless & disadvantaged people)
  • Umbrella - £200 - (to support their work with disabled children, young people and their families)

We are delighted to be partnering with Derby County once again to help address the massive issue of food poverty in our city. We love Derby and are thrilled to work with others who are equally passionate about our city and the people in it!

It’s great news that Derby County is part of such a worthwhile cause and I would encourage our supporters to show their support, even if it is by bringing just one item.

LoveDerby - Supporting Faith Hope & Enterprise

One £ Shop
£1 A Week Shop

As part of our LoveDerby initiative and our ongoing support of Faith, Hope & Enterprise, we are promoting a £1 a week shop scheme. The idea is that when you do your weekly shop you buy a few extra items to donate to Faith Hope & Enterprise. These are then brought along on a Sunday morning and donated to FHE. For some ideas of what to buy why not download our shopping list.

What is Faith, Hope & Enterprise?

Faith, Hope & Enterprise is an organisation that provides supported housing for some of the most marginalised members of our society.

Their exclusion may be due to general homelessness issues, drug or alcohol misuse, former offending behaviour or mental health concerns.

They provide a range of mentoring and support services to help people build their confidence and self esteem. Residents have a regular programme of assessment and review with a variety of activities that help them develop their life skills.
