At Reality Church London, 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.
We gather weekly in the Old Theatre of the London School of Economics. Our services are designed to communicate and celebrate the unchanging truth of Jesus in a welcoming environment. In these gatherings, we sing, read and explore the Bible, celebrate the Lord's supper and connect with each other.
We hope you will join us.
Join us on 17, 24 and 31 December as we worship at Saint James Clerkenwell to celebrate Christmas. We will return to our regular church venue at the Old Theatre of the London School of Economics on 7 January 2018.

Kids and Youth
In RCL Kids, children ages 3-11 are welcomed and provided with teaching and activities in a safe and fun environment during the service. A crèche is available for under 3s at the start of the service. We also have a Youth Study for those aged 11-16. The youth will be dismissed along with the children during the meet and greet time and will rejoin the congregation for worship at the end of the service.
What to Expect
Worship is about centering our lives on what we love most. We believe that God alone is the one worthy of all our utmost affection and attention and so we begin by singing and celebrating him together. Just follow the band and feel free to lift your hands.
The church 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. Since we have been accepted in this community by grace, we extend a hand to others, welcoming others as we have been welcomed. Go on, shake someone’s hand.
Our money flows freely towards the things that we love. 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. If you would like to give to the work of the church you can do so by using the envelope provided, or give online.
We believe that the Bible is God’s word, authority for all life and practice, a library of writings that together tell a unified story, which leads us to Jesus. In reading and exploring the Bible, we expect to be surprised, healed, challenged and changed. If you need a Bible, we have extras we make available on Sundays.
Every encounter with God invites a response. As we hear about and experience who God is and what he has done for us in Jesus, we are invited to believe, receive and act. In response, we sing to God and pray by simply talking to him about what he has spoken to us. A Prayer Team is also available to pray for you, bringing your requests to God on your behalf.
Jesus is always calling us and inviting us to walk with him and follow him. One way we can respond to Jesus on Sundays is through the Lord's supper by partaking of the bread, signifying Christ’s broken body, and the cup, signifying his blood shed for our forgiveness. If you are still considering Christ and his claims we invite you to enjoy the peace of this moment and consider what it means to trust him.
In our church community, we seek to share life together, encourage one another, and serve our city in love as we seek to follow Jesus. If you would like to learn more about Community Groups or serving on Sundays, please click the button below.
