Arena Church Belper

Campus Pastors


David has been married to Jeanette for 25 years and have 4 children. They recently moved to Arena Church from Milton Keynes where David and Jeanette ran a counselling and support charity working with mostly addiction issues.

David was a Pastor and Elder at Milton Keynes Christian Centre where he pastored over 400 people, having been involved in full time ministry since 1994. They are passionate about showing the love of God in practical ways to local communities to bring lasting change, whilst raising up new leaders to be involved in reaching the lost.

David is enthusiastic about history, and is influenced by great leaders such as Alfred the Great, Althelstan his grandson, and Winston Churchill, inspired by how they had a vision for a nation built in the face of great adversity. They love the adventure of life and want to invite as many as possible to meet Jesus in this life changing experience.


Arena Church is a place where everyone can belong, our ethos is that “everybody is somebody at Arena”. This is no new idea of ours, it comes from the heart of Jesus, he hung around with the majestic and maligned, the businessman and the beggar, the politician and the prostitute and he loved them all. Jesus heart is for everybody, and that is our heart at Arena. We are seeking to build a Church that reaches every area of society, where everyone is welcomed with open arms. Wherever you are in your life, you will be welcomed at the Arena.

Our Sunday services reflect the inclusive nature of Jesus, whether you have never stepped foot in a Church and just want to ‘see what it’s all about’ or whether you have been in Church your whole life, there is something for you. Our services reflect the greatness of our God alongside the reality of our humanity. They are passionate, intimate, exciting and engaging as we seek to go on this journey called life together. We don’t want you to put on a mask or a facade, we want you to come as you are.

We are one Church in many locations. Each of our campuses reflects the heart of Arena but also the community in which we are placed. We would love to welcome you to one of our campuses this week.
