What we do

Church without…

We are a group of people on a spiritual journey, seeking new ways to explore faith, informed by the saints of old and a variety of spiritual traditions. The group is open to all – those established in faith, those questioning it and those seeking it. This is church without walls (quite literally as we meet on Sunday mornings out of doors) without church culture, without hierarchy and without certainty.

Our 7 values try to express those things we hold dear and to which we aspire.

We meet in various venues in and around Matlock. On Sunday mornings we tend to assemble in the Bandstand in Hall Lays Park at 9.30am, meeting in all weathers and through the changing seasons. We often find something inspiring in connection with nature rather than being behind walls. On Wednesday evenings we meet either in Moca, Dale Road, Matlock at 8.00pm, or in a home. Those evenings are informal, usually discussion based but also include a shared meal together every few weeks. We often share bread and wine when we meet.

And we also organise SOULSPACE once every two months in the Imperial Rooms, Matlock. This offers a chance to experience peace and tranquillity, to unclutter your mind and to reflect in a way that busy lifestyles often do not permit. At SOULSPACE you can have a cup of tea or coffee, glass of wine, piece of homemade cake and a natter. SOULSPACE attracts folk from far and wide  for spiritual nourishment and inspiration.
