Hi there!

We’re really glad you’re thinking of visiting us. You’ll find the atmosphere at Redeemer King is relaxed, informal and not traditionally churchy. Nothing is required of you – we’re just so pleased you’re here.

First visit?

We often have first-time visitors coming along, so whether you are exploring churches in the area or are simply passing through, the chances are that you won’t be alone in dropping in for the first time.

If it is your first visit, we really want you to feel welcome and at home. Our welcome team will greet you and show you where to grab a cuppa. If you have any questions, please just grab one of our team – we’ll be happy to help.

What’s the format?

People start arriving from 10:00am to grab a brew and have a natter.

At 10:30am the worship band will kick us off with a few songs, a mix of traditional and more contemporary worship. Then, our speaker will get up and talk, either on a Bible passage or a relevant theme.

Being one church is important to us so  Kids’ Church will start after some worship and before the main speaker begins. The kids will be taken through to their designated rooms and will be checked in.

The morning ends around midday, after which there’s plenty of time for more tea, coffee and a chance to make new friends.

Sometimes there may be communion, baptisms, or baby dedications, or an interview as part of the service. We try to explain clearly what’s going on, especially for people who are new to church.

Sunday FAQs

Do I have to be a Christian?

No. Many people come to RK to explore faith and often come for quite a while, learning more about Jesus before they are ready to commit their lives to him. We love exploring life and faith with people. You are massively welcome!

Is there a Dress Code?

Absolutely not! Wear what you like. Some people will be really smart and some super casual. Come as you are most comfortable. Most people standing at the front will be casually dressed.

Is there parking?

There is a car park to the side of Birdholme WMC which is available for us to use (there’s even some electric vehicle charge points). Some space is also available in front of the WMC itself (off street) but please ensure no doors are blocked.

On-street parking is available on Rothervale Road – but please respect our neighbours. An industrial estate is really close by and offers plenty of on-street parking (Burley Close). It’s a really short walk away from the church but just out of the residential area.

Can I get a drink?

Of course! It’s self-service tea and coffee all through the morning. Some people use the excuse of the kids leaving for their groups to grab a cheeky brew!

Should I let someone know I’m coming?

There’s no obligation to tell us you are coming.  However, we’re more than happy if you do want to let us know. We can arrange for someone to meet you if you wish – especially if it’s your first visit as we know it can be a little daunting.

If you have any specific questions or concerns though, you can email our coordinator Rich –  ahead of your visit.

Is there anything else I need to know?

After our morning services we’d love to  get to know a bit more about you. Of course, if you want to stay ‘anonymous’, that’s fine, but we would be delighted to meet you.
