Reach’s vision is simple: we want to be Disciples who Go, Plant and Build God’s church and Kingdom throughout Derby, the UK and the World. We share in that vision as young people too. We’re looking to raise up youth that are wanting to Go, and that know what to Plant and are able to Build when they get there – wherever “there” may be!
In order to see our vision become a reality, we run quite a varied programme. We balance our time between focusing upwards on God, focusing inwards on each other, and focusing outwards towards our friends and the world we live in. We spend time being all gathered together for things like our residential and youth nights, as well as a monthly worship night called Awakening.
