First Time Visitors

Visiting a church for the first time can be daunting – there are lots of questions, and you are probably wondering what to expect when you arrive. The one thing we try very hard to do is give everyone a warm welcome, and try to make your visit worthwhile. After all, we’d love it if you wanted to come back!

Who are we?

Ruach City Church consists of a wide range of different people, from all ages, different backgrounds and cultures. Whoever you are you are assured a very warm welcome.

Where are we?

Ruach City Church has three locations across London – Brixton, Kilburn and Walthamstow.


We have some on-site parking at our Kilburn location, including a number of disabled bays, but it does get quite full, so if you want a space you might need to arrive early. However, there are no parking restrictions in the neighbouring roads, although please be considerate by not parking too close to driveways and road junctions.

What to wear

This is easy… wear whatever you feel comfortable in. We accept people just as they are!

When you arrive

If it’s your first visit then it’s probably best to turn up about 15 minutes before the service begins. You’ll be greeted at the door by our ‘Welcome Team’ who will give you some information about the service and notices of forthcoming events.

What to expect

Going anywhere for the first time can be a bit of a nerve-racking experience. To help avoid any worries here’s a quick summary of what you can expect at Ruach City Church. Our regular style of worship is contemporary and gospel songs  with an emphasis on biblical preaching. We take a collection during our services, but as a visitor there is no obligation to give.  Hopefully you’ll find us to be friendly  and if you don’t understand something please simply ask.

Prayer Ministry

As Christians, we believe that prayer changes things. After the service we offer a ‘Prayer Ministry Team’ who will pray with you. The service leader will point out where they will be, so please do not be afraid to go and see them and ask for prayer. We also offer ‘Prayer for Healing’ at the start of each service.

Is it just Sundays?

Absolutely not! We offer mid-week services, activities and groups. Groups meet for friendship, study and prayer and are a great way to get to know others in the church and grow together.

For those with disabilities

We aim to be an all-inclusive church, with a Church that is accessible for those with disabilities. We have disabled toilets and a loop system. If you wish to discuss specific needs please contact the Church Office.
