Our Story

As a church plant from Festival Church, in October 2019 a group began to meet together in Derby. The vision was to be established in the community by April 2020.
Unaware, like the rest of the world, that there was a pandemic just months away, so in March 2020 as everything closed we became an online church with people connecting with us from across the UK. We launched Speed Church in February 2021 on Facebook as a way of connecting with the community we wanted to be in. Finally, in May 2021 we began gathering physically at a local church hall. The story in Derby has only just begun but we are excited about the journey and all that it may entail.
