Experience, enjoy, share and proclaim the transforming love of God
Worshipping God is central to all we do at RMCC and we offer a range of styles to help us engage with God. We aim to make RMCC a place where you can come to be fed, equipped for your daily lives and celebrate all that God is doing.
At these we offer children’s group (4 – 10 years), young people’s group (11+) and provide a crèche for babies and toddlers.
