Hello and welcome to our City Centre location. Hopefully you'll find all the details you need below but the best way to get to know us is by visiting us at one of our Sunday gatherings. Hopefully we'll see you soon.
Our coffee shop is open for breakfast and drinks from 9am.
The meeting starts at 10am and finishes around 11.45am.
Make yourself at home
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 gathering 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).
Location & parking
The King’s Centre on King Street in Norwich (NR1 1PH).
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.
What should I wear?
You’re invited to come as you are, whether it’s a suit or shorts you feel most comfortable wearing. We generally tend to dress pretty casual.
Children and Youth
All of our leaders of King's Kids groups and Radiate are DBS checked and are supervised by leaders of the church. We also have a comprehensive safeguarding policy in place.
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.
We love students and as a church we want to welcome you into the King's family.
Our aim, as a community, is to make much of Jesus. We do this by loving Him and loving one another.
The best way to get to know us is to join us for a Sunday gathering. We have also have lunches, pub trips, buses and friendly smiles, so whether you're an undergrad or postgrad we hope you find a home with us here at King's.
