The church is a community where everyone is welcomed as they are. It is not a club or a clique built on what we have (or haven’t) accomplished. Rather, the church is built upon what Jesus has accomplished. Belonging to a church begins by putting our faith in Christ, and so we seek to grow Reality Church London by building relationships and ministries which are centred on Jesus.
There are six ways to get connected, we believe that everyone at Reality Church London should strive to be involved in these six things: Sunday Gatherings, Serving, Giving, Events, Bible Studies & Community Groups.
Our Sunday Gathering is central to all that we do. It is our opportunity to connect with others in community and ultimately connect with God through worship, teaching and prayer. No matter where you are coming from in life, whether you are hopeful, sceptical or just curious about Christian faith, all are welcome. Together, we expect to be surprised, healed, challenged and changed as we learn about the person of Jesus.
Each team serves our church by creating an environment where others are loved and where we can worship God in the Spirit and in truth (John 4:4). Creating such an environment requires numerous very practical areas of service. Whatever gift you’ve been given, there’s a place to use it at Reality Church London. As a church we are continuing to build ministry teams who are keen to use their gifts to serve others.
As a church, we give because of the grace and generosity God has given us. We are not under compulsion to give; rather, we should offer cheerfully what God has placed on our hearts with grace. This giving is described in the Bible as being God-directed and love-motivated (2 Cor. 8:2-8).
It is the generous and regular giving of the congregation that supports our mission as a church seeking the renewal of London.
RHYTHMS & EVENTS
Authentic community can be so hard to find, yet at RCL we believe it is so important for growing as a follower of Jesus.
We have a number of one off events we hold throughout the year alongside a number of regular rhythms which take place.

Men’s and Women’s Bible Studies are designed to equip us to read the bible, discover its message and prayerfully apply it to our lives.
These studies work through a book of the bible in single-gender groups across several weeks. They are a great place to ask any question about the bible and there are no expectations to join. They meet every 2 weeks in Holborn and are led by key leaders in our church.
Community Groups are all about sharing life together, encouraging one another, and serving our city in love by the power of the Holy Spirit. A typical Community Group will involve sharing food, discussing a bible passage, praying together and encouraging each other to love your part of the city. They meet throughout the week in people’s home across London.
