City Centre meets at the King’s Centre on King Street in Norwich (NR1 1PH). On Sundays our coffee shop is open for breakfast from 9am. The church meeting starts at 10am and finishes around 11.45am.
What to expect
Everyone is welcome to join us on a Sunday. If you’re new to church our meetings can seem a little bit daunting. To help you feel at home we’ve highlighted what you can expect from a typical Sunday with us.
Make yourself at home
Our coffee shop, King’s Coffee is usually open from 9am, serving coffee, tea and breakfast snacks right up until 9.50am. They’ll be lots of people around to meet you if you’d like to join us early!
Our meeting kicks off with sung worship, often with some contributions from church family. During that time please feel free to stand or sit, sing or hum - we want you to feel at home with us. After that you'll often hear some church news – highlighting stuff coming up in the life of King's –which will usually be followed by a talk (or ‘preach’) from one of our leaders, lasting around 30 minutes. After that we usually return to sung worship, giving people a space to reflect on and respond to what we have just heard.
Don’t rush off!
After the meeting please hang around and grab a drink. If you’re new you can head to our Info Area at the back of the auditorium, where our Welcome Team are ready to meet you. They’d love to get to know you and answer any questions you might have.
If there’s anything you need while you’re with us, or there’s anything you’re not sure about, please grab one of our Welcome Team – wearing purple badges (and a big smile).
Where can I park?
There is plenty of parking round the corner for free on Rouen road. Alternatively you can also park in one of the multi-storey car parks which are just a short walking distance. You can see your parking options on this map.
King's Kids and Youth
We have activities available for children and youth on a Sunday. Please ask our Welcome Team for more information if you’re unsure, or you can follow directions from the front. Our children and youth spend the first part of the morning in the meeting with the adults and then leave for their own groups. There is no pressure for your children to go out to the activities, feel free to keep them in the meeting with you.
Twinklers & Sparklers (Crèche & Pre-School)
Twinklers and Sparklers are available for all children under school age, meeting downstairs on the Lower Ground floor. Simply follow the toddlers and parents as they leave the meeting and our team (in blue and green tee shirts) will direct you. The older children (age 3 and over) leave for their own group, Sparklers, part-way through the session and come back at the end. You are welcome to stay with your children or they can normally be left with our Twinklers Team. All children must be signed in and out by a parent or carer.
Generate (School years Reception to 6)
Generate is a fun-packed morning with games, songs and activities for Primary School age children, meeting upstairs in Conference Room 1. Simply follow the children and parents as they leave the meeting and our Generate Team (in red tee shirts) will direct you. All children must be signed in and out by a parent or carer.
Radiate (School years 7-9)
Our youth group, Radiate, meets on Sundays for school years 7-9. They leave the adult meeting just before the talk. Some mornings they stay in the meeting for the talk, just follow directions from the front on the day. Radiate also meet on Friday nights at the King’s Centre.
Our children and youth activities are run by volunteers from King’s Community Church. All volunteers are DBS checked and are supervised by leaders of the church.
Little families within the bigger family
LIFE Groups are the heartbeat of King’s Community Church. They are small groups of people meeting in homes across Norwich, simply committed to doing life together and sharing the good news of Jesus with those around them.
LIFE Groups are the best way to connect into King’s and get to know people better.
We want new people to feel at home at King’s and what better way to do that than to meet in each other’s homes, to share food and enjoy life together. Life Groups are a place where we learn what it means to follow Jesus in our everyday lives; how we do family, friendships, work life, leisure, etc. This sometimes includes unpacking what we’ve heard on Sundays and encouraging each other to dig deeper into the bible to discover and apply more of it’s life-changing truth.
