Destiny Children’s Ministry
We love children at Destiny – so we have an excellent programme for the children led by our Youth and Children’s Pastor (Steve Keates) and a great Team of experienced leaders (all DBS approved).
- Children on Sunday Morning
We have aged Groups from the babies and toddler in our fully equipped crèche (with TV link to the main service) and groups up to include our 12 year olds. The kids love it – it’s lots of fun! There is also usually a kids spot (called ‘High 5’) during the first part of the main service. Tell your children to look out for ‘Buddy’ our Destiny mascot bear!
- Friday Club
A great group for 5-12 year olds from 6:30-8pm.
A dynamic youth club for 10-14 year olds meeting weekly on Friday evenings from 6:30-8pm. Filled with games, activities, tuck shop and a great environment to explore Faith

Prayer and Bible Teaching
The first Wednesday of each month is our Prayer Evening – one hour of prayer for all the church. The second Wednesday of each month is our Night School of the Word – a time for a more in-depth look at Bible study.
On the last two or three weeks of the month our local Fellowship Groups meet all across the city. These Fellowship Groups are led by good caring couples who give pastoral care and encourage their Group to grow strong in their faith. For more information on where these Groups meet please contact the Church. It is our hope that everyone at Destiny is strongly connected with a Fellowship Group – it’s part of our plan for you to feel part of the Destiny family, your discipleship and pastoral care.

Missions are an important part of the ministry of Destiny Church Wakefield. The people at Destiny Church have generously enabled Missions to go ahead and some incredible offerings have meant that projects to build churches and orphanages in Malawi and a church/Bible School facility in India have been undertaken that have made a real difference to the lives of so many people and orphans. Most years a team of people travel to one of the Destiny Connections Church overseas to encourage a local church and help them with a project. Our aim is to help then ‘go further faster!’
