Sunday Worship Services

We extend a very warm welcome to you at Christ Church URC Rayleigh.

On Sundays we meet together to worship God and discovery together how God can make a difference in our lives. Whether it's your first time in a church, recently moved to Rayleigh or you've been around other churches, please come and experience being in a friendly community finding God.

Family Worship - 10am

This is our main service attended by all age groups. On most Sundays, children (from age 3 upwards) and youth can go to their own groups (Sunday Clubs) mid way through the service. There is also a toddlers play area in the worship area available.
An All Age Family Service is held on the first Sunday of each month, where children and youth stay for the whole service.
We celebrate Holy Communion on the third Sunday of each month where all are invited to share the bread and wine (non alcoholic).
Singing is accompanied either by the organ or the music group and is a selection of modern and traditional hymns and songs.
After the service, which takes about an hour, free tea, coffee, squash and biscuits lubricate our conversation and fellowship.

Evening Worship - 6:30pm

Evening worship is a quieter and more traditional service that normally meets on the second Sunday in the month during summer months (NB there is no service in winter, Nov- March). During this service Holy Communion is celebrated, all may participate.
We frequently join with Rayleigh Methodist Church in Eastwood Road, at either 4pm or 6:30pm.

As well as our Sunday services we offer a wide range  of other activities throughout the week which are enjoyed by many. Please select from:-

                    Church Calendar looking ahead for the next few months.
