Services

10:30 Morning Worship

A wide range of people participate in our Sunday morning worship. Children's and young people's groups are usually meeting elsewhere in the building for most of the service, but we like to begin and end our worship together. We aim to make worship as inclusive as possible, with an all age element in the opening and frequent family services.

The projection system means that we are free to use a wide range of material for worship... and we do. You can expect then a mix of 'treasures old and new', a sermon, and opportunities for prayer.

A Christmas Eve service

The Lord's Supper

On the first Sunday of the month we have a communion service. All who know and love the Lord Jesus Christ are welcome to take part in it at RBC. If you feel unable to do so, please feel absolutely free to let the bread and wine pass you by.

Children & young people

Children and families are very welcome at RBC, and our morning service offers a range of groups and activities for 0–18 year olds. We call them our network groups:

  • Crèche (0–3) a well equipped, safe space with plenty of toys for children to play with. Parents are welcome to come out and stay with their children, or leave them with our experienced volunteers.
  • Minnows (3–5) follow the Scripture Union Bubbles book which looks at a different Bible story each week with relevant activities.
  • Sunday Shoal (5–11) also follow Scripture Union material, providing creative ways to help children learn the week's Bible story.
  • C Life (11+) addresses Bible themes and issues relevant to young people today.

The stewards will be more than happy to take you to the right room. Our groups are led by experienced volunteers who all hold a current DBS certificate and undergo child protection training.

Accessibility

The church building is wheelchair accessible and there are disabled toilet facilities in the John Lees Hall next door. For those with hearing aids, an induction loop covers the centre of the church between the two aisles. We project our songs onto a screen but a large print copy is available if you need it.

After the service

After the service, we meet for refreshments in the John Lees Hall next door or, when the weather allows, in the garden. We would love to see you there.

6:30 Evening Worship

Our evening services tend to be more informal and relaxed than our morning worship. They do not usually take place in the main church building, but in the John Lees Hall next door or, during the summer months, even occasionally outdoors in the church garden.

They take different forms throughout the year and are sometimes experimental in nature. Please note that there are no evening services in August.

Communion is served on the third Sunday in each month.
