Cemeteries

We believe the Chapel does NOT have a graveyard.

Note: any church within an urban environment may have had its graveyard closed after the Burial Act of 1853. Any new church built after that is unlikely to have had a graveyard at all.

Church History

This Place of Worship was founded by 1977, and we understand it is still open.

This building is a former Congregational, and United Reformed Church, built in 1886-1887. Its present congregation may be traced back to around 1951, when a group of around twelve people formed Whiston Street Assemblies of God Pentecostal Church. They acquired the building after it was closed for Congregational worship in 1976.

The following notice in The London Gazette of 25th October 1977 (p.13450) recorded its registration for marriages:

A building certified for worship named PENTECOSTAL CHURCH, Normanton Road, Derby in the registration district of Derby in the non-metropolitan county of Derbyshire was on 7th October 1977 registered for solemnizing marriages therein pursuant to section 41 of the Marriage Act, 1949 as amended by section 1(1) of the Marriage Acts Amendment Act, 1958. Dated 20th October 1977.

It is listed in Places recorded by the Registrar General under the provisions of the Places of Worship Registration Act 1855 (2010) as New Life Christian Centre, with an Assemblies of God congregation, but it is now (2016) known more simply as New Life Church Derby.

Denomination

Now or formerly Assemblies of God.

If more than one congregation has worshipped here, or its congregation has united with others, in most cases this will record its original dedication.

Resources

I have found many websites of use whilst compiling the information for this database. Here are some which deserve mention as being of special interest for Derby, and perhaps to Local History and Places of Worship as a whole.

The above links were selected and reviewed at the time I prepared the information, but please be aware their content may vary, or disappear entirely. These factors are outside my control.
