Church at Home - Rainham Christian Fellowship Online!

As we know many of you will miss our lively services, interesting sermons and times of fellowship, we've started to collect a series of links and resources on these pages. 

We're holding short "Zoom" services each Sunday - details provided below. Please get in touch if you would like to join us for either the Sunday services or any other activities (you don't need a computer - you can even join by phone).

Alternatively, you can enjoy a time of worship by 'joining' a service at another church, either in real time or watch a recording at a time that suits you, you can listen to one of our 'playlists' of worship songs, or you can listen to a recorded sermon if you have less time.

Please see our sub-pages for online churches', 'worship' and 'the word' for more details.Please feel free to contact us with suggestions for other links to add to this page.

Palm Sunday (5th April) - Worship at Home

Peter has put together a set of notes to allow you to follow a Palm Sunday service from home, including readings, prayers, links to songs to sing along to (on YouTube), a story and Peter's short 'sermon' - and an activity you can carry out too.
