New Records to search

Non-Conformist Baptisms added

Several thousand baptism records from the Non-Conformist chapels in Derby have just been added to the site for our members to search. They include Methodist, Baptist, Presbyterian and Swedenborgian. It has taken a long while to get these transcribed and checked, hopefully our members will get the benefit. Enjoy!!

Talk by Stephen Orchard

Our chairman Dr Stephen Orchard has had a long connection with the URC and in his time has come across many situations which have required tact and a sense of humour. We have managed to talk him into telling us about his most memorable experiences under the title "A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Pulpit". If you want to spend a very enjoyable hour then come along and make the most of this one.
