can you help to build a community hub?

The Hub will be the headquarters of Derby City Mission from which we will continue to deliver existing and NEW services to people in the city of Derby. The building will be a God given space in which we help restore broken people and introduce them to the benefits of a relationship with God.

The HUB will be a multi-functional space and will provide the following services:

  • Restoration space: a place where guests receive holistic care for mental, physical and spiritual wellness and we address addictions, financial issues, sense of worthlessness, strains in social relationships and criminal tendencies
  • Public space: a place to run a café, to build relationships and to move people from chaotic to contributory lifestyles
  • Supportive space: a place where we can hold mentoring sessions with clients to help them achieve their personal goals
  • Meeting space: a place where we meet and work with agencies in the city who share our passion for the disadvantaged in society
  • Prayer space: a place where we can worship God and pray for God’s work in the city. We want the building to glow with God’s love and prayer for deep transformation
  • Outreach space: a place where we can expand our work into local schools and run children’s clubs
  • Training space: a place where we can run the an ‘Urban School of Mission’ equipping and training staff and churches
  • Productive space: our new headquarters!

WHY do we need it?

Staff numbers have doubled in the last year and our current building is inadequate in size to be able to offer new services and training. Now that we have our new building (Praise the Lord!) and great favour with the authorities in Derby, we need to capitalise on the wave.

HOW much does it cost?

The building will cost £900,000 (plus £120,000 for refurbishments)

We will fund it by:

  • Taking out a mortgage
  • Selling our existing Charnwood Street building
  • Using our building fund and donations from individuals and grant making trusts
  • Additional income from renting space to other charities having similar values and aims, to pay off the mortgage
