Church Inclusion Criteria

Derby Church Net works to ensure the services provided cover as many different Christian groups in the Derbyshire area as possible. However, it is recognised that there must be some guidance as to what is considered 'Christian' for these purposes.

The following criteria have been agreed in consultation with Churches Together in Derbyshire specifically for the purposes of the directory, but the same guidelines are used throughout the work of Derby Church Net. These are aimed at including what is generally recognised as Christian, and following the teachings of the Bible. To this end, the following criteria for inclusion apply:

A church, group or its parent denomination must believe in One God, who is Father, Son and Holy Spirit and either:

  • Be a full member of Churches Together in England (CTE); or
  • Be a member of the Evangelical Alliance (EA); or
  • Be a member of the Fellowship of Independent Evangelical Churches (FIEC); or
  • In the case of inter-church groups (i.e. groups formed for working together ecumenically), all the churches they represent must themselves be eligible for inclusion; or
  • In the case of independent churches/groups, or those whose setup makes membership of CTE, EA or FIEC difficult, they must have references from up to three leaders (each from different denominations), whose organisations are themselves eligible for inclusion.

Groups unable to meet these criteria are unlikely to be included, although are considered on a case by case basis. Please note we are unable to discuss the status of specific organisations other than with the leaders of that organisation or their parent body.
