Derbyshire Place is a ministry of the United Methodist Church reaching children and families in the Holly Hill area. Our mission statement: “Derbyshire Place is a Christian community Center that provides a safe, caring environment where children and families can gather and foster growth in the areas of education, recreation, and spiritual development”.
Formed in July 2013, the center has offered many opportunities for children & families including free lunch and activities every Saturday from 12:00-2:00. Seven children have received scholarships for Warren Willis Youth Camp, and we’ve enjoyed field trips to the New Smyrna Beach Little Theater, Ponce Inlet Lighthouse and movie night at First UMC Port Orange. Our 4th Vacation Bible School will be held August 1-5, 2016. These activities have been made possible by grants, gifts, resale shop sales, donations and volunteers from our church and our sister UMC churches.
If you, your study group or mission team would like to know more, simply stop by the center any Friday or Saturday 9-3. 962 Derbyshire Road. You can serve in many different ways such as work in our resale shop, assist the children’s program, do yard work, help with the Community Access Partner Team. If you can smile and offer a handshake, you can serve here. Come visit and see how you can best use your talents to make disciples for the transformation of the world.
