Serving Our City.

At Church of Christ the King we have a passion to serve and bless the local communities around us.

We work through our sites to effect and engage with the differing communities that they are located in, whilst we also pull together to engage with our city's social issues and with those who perhaps may need extra support, such as the elderly and homeless. For more information please see below.

Our involvement does not stop locally though. We regularly raise and give away many thousands of pounds in supporting countries that have suffered famine or hardship around the world. For more information please see below.

If you have further questions please feel free to contact us.
