At Rushmere Community Church we value every person who walks through the door. Every person matters to God and we want to make sure that people feel welcomed and loved. FOR THIS REASON Here are some things that you might like to know about our Sunday services.
Meeting time and location
We meet every Sunday 10:30am at Rushmere Hall Primary School (for directions and address see visit us page). The school car park is accessible upon arrival and the entrance to the school is visible by two big flags outside the door.
Welcome and refreshments
You will be greeted by our welcome team who can assist you and answer any questions. You will find plenty of information about us as a church on the tables as you enter. Please feel free to take any of the information on the tables away with you. Refreshments are served in the hall where we have our service.
Service and information
The main service starts at 10:30am with a welcome from our Pastor, James. During our services there will be a time of song worship and all words will appear on a big screen. This will be introduced by the worship leader.
There will also be a message from one of the church leaders as we seek to know God more and hear what it means to live out our faith in Jesus in the world around us. All the talks and messages are bible based and accessible with words printed on the big screen. We make sure that our teaching is clear, practical and rooted in what God says about life and how we live.
When it comes to doing church and worshipping God we all respond in different ways. When it comes to songs, some people stand and some sit. Some sing and some like to reflect on the words. Please feel free to respond in your own way.
Lots of people wonder what the church does with money and why it needs it.
For those who consider RCC as their church family some choose to give financially to support the work of the church. Our income goes towards the rent of the school premises, paying the pastors salary, funding the role of the CAP debt centre manager, and putting on events to serve our local community.
We also give to five Christian charities some based in the UK and others overseas. In our service there will be a time when we take up our offering. An offering bag will be passed around and people are welcome to put in money if they are able to. Please do not feel under any pressure to give.
Youth and Children
Our young people meet together and during the main service they are invited to head to their respective groups. Do let our welcome team know if you have children with you and they can direct you accordingly.
Further details of who we are and different events can be found at our welcome table, on our website or Facebook page. Please visit our visit us page for more information.
