Serving at RFC

There are a number of ways that you can serve at RFC, both on a Sunday and mid week.

Serving on a Sunday

We need teams of volunteers to make our Sunday meetings run smoothly.

Welcome Team

The welcome team meet and greet every person that comes to our Sunday meetings! They help people to connect with others, and answer questions about RFC life.

Kids Church

Each week our Kids church team teach, encourage and have fun with our children as they point them towards Jesus. Youth – Engaging and training our young people and encouraging them to pursue Christ for themselves.


Caring for our pre-school children in a nurturing and engaging environment, our creche teams enable parents to engage with our Sunday meetings.


Each week our refreshments team create a warm and welcoming environment as they set up and serve tea and coffee.

Set up/Pack away

The SUPA team are the first to arrive and last to leave, creating spaces for the church to gather and connect with one another and God.


Those with musical gifting serve RFC by playing and leading us in sung worship each week.


Our audio/visual team set up and run the sound and visual components of our meetings.


We have a team that arranges and operates the lighting at our evening venue.
