We started as a small youth group, hosted and led by Ken & Kath Tune in their home. Sometime after this, a few were baptised in a local swimming pool and started to consider the group as ‘church’, and in 1978, the church was born.
It grew mostly through evangelism of younger people, but soon families were added to us and a few older people too. Today, we have over 150 people of all ages and backgrounds, across two communities in Dronfield and Eckington
Ken & Kath led the church for 22 years before Ken sadly died, and Andy Messer continued for the next 8 years, before leaving the leadership to pursue a career in storytelling. Andy was followed by Yvette Mattison for another 8 years before she retired and the current Core team took up the baton on September 3rd, 2016.
