Reach Church, and Synergy, the wider family of churches to which Reach belongs, has established a thriving WTC Hub at the Riverside Centre at Pride Park, Derby for the East Midlands area.

The newly re-furbished Reach Events Conference Centre is easily accessible by road and rail, being 10 minutes walk from Derby rail station and close to the A52. The multiple rooms are readily configured for WTC requirements and easily accessible for disabled people.

Hub Director:

Paul Astle

I am a member of the REACH group of churches with its head offices in Derby, where our East Midlands Hub is held. I lead the REACH Community in Eastwood, where we operate a “Warm Space” facility during the winter months, offering help and giving extra assistance for those in need during those months. I’m passionate about serving in the local community, including my involvement with the local FoodBank over the past 5 years. I studied at King’s School of Theology over a period of 3 years, completing in 2014.

My hobbies are keeping fit, especially circuit training, walking… and cycling by the sea, which we do as often as possible during the summer months, as we have a caravan on the coast.

If you are interested in studying with WTC, I’d love to meet up and have a chat.
