We would like to welcome you to come along the journey with us; A place where you can connect with a family of people and have a sense of belonging. We are a people of faith committed to loving God and others in creative and tangible ways. We achieve this through meeting together each week (Sunday, 10am), remaining in contact with each other through the week (in small groups), private prayer and study, and community involvement.

Community Involvement

Derwent Valley Corps (formally New Norfolk) is an Evangelical Church committed to bringing the Gospel of Jesus Christ to our community and helping those around us through a wide range of community services, such as our Emergency Relief service, Drop-in centre, and Positive Lifestyle program available by appointment. Find out more


We meet regularly as a faith community to encourage one another, to learn, and to worship together. We have activities for children, teaching in our bible study small groups, women's get togethers and more. 
When you come to our Sunday morning celebration you will hear great music, see interesting media, hear a short message, your children will be invited to join in fun activities with other children, and you will meet friendly people over refreshments. There is no requirement to wear anything different than when you visit a friend's house. You will have the opportunity to ask any questions or perhaps be prayed for, if you desire. You will not be singled out but you will be warmly welcomed. Find out more
