CCK Life.

Visitors are always welcome here and below is all the information you might need if you plan to visit CCK on a Sunday. Sunday meetings The 9.15am and 11.30am meetings comprise people of all ages and phases of life. There is a full children's programme and we also have crèche facilities and a baby room. At the 6.30pm meeting, the style of the meeting reflects the large numbers of students who attend- the music is likely to be a little louder and we don’t provide a children’s programme in the evening.

In the second part of our blog series about Zones, elder Matt Davis identifies the current Zone locations and their leadership here at CCK. Just to recap, the way we are building community at CCK is through Zones, which are simply a cluster of Small Groups that relate based upon their geographical location in the City (with the exception of Internationals, Students & Youth, which gather demographically).  At the moment we have 14 such Zones, and we have built faithfully in line with what God has prophetically said to us over the years. For more details on that, you can check out the first post here…

Who is Jesus? God, myth or just a man? This autumn at Church of Christ the King we are asking the people of Brighton & Hove to share their opinion of who they think Jesus is. So far we've had all sorts of responses. Some describe Jesus as the 'Son of God' others think he's a 'fictional character', 'a character from a badly written book', 'the delusion of millions' and even 'half man, half poodle'. Also, 72% of respondents to the site have polled that they think Jesus is a myth.

Joel announced that we would launch a multi-site venue in the West of the city during Autumn 2011. The eldership have asked if Matt Davis would head this up and plans are beginning to speed up. This exciting new venture for us a church has raised a number of questions, mainly in the West, and with this in mind, we will be launching a bi-weekly multi-site blog. Steve Boon, the elder largely responsible for making this happen, will be writing, answering questions that Matt Davis is collating from the West zones and also will go through the various departments heads that help make CCK happen, asking them to share what issues they are having to address in order to launch a successful multi site.

October saw the start of our autumn preaching series Who is Jesus? Over the past couple months Joel Virgo (Lead Elder)  and others have been showing us about the life and claims of Jesus and how this applies to our lives today. At the members’ night Joel spoke specifically about the need of the series being both for the “believers and not-yet-believers”.  Therefore, to accompany this series we’ve produced various resources including the Who Is Jesus? interactive website ( where people across Brighton and Hove can have their say about who they think Jesus is. This was demonstrated by Matt Simmonds (Communications Director)  who said “A website will not bring people to church, A website will not save people, it’s a just a tool to try and engage people“

CCKY, CCK's youth group for 11 to 14 year olds, is starting the new school year with a bang on Friday night with Pirates of the Lagoon. Inspired by an idea from none other than Steve Horne, the night will see the CCKY youth put into groups who will then have to build rafts from whatever materials are available. They will then sail the rafts across Hove Lagoon, although we fully expect most of the rafts to end up on the bottom. Anyone aged 11 to 14 is welcome and it all starts this Friday night at 7pm at Hove Lagoon (map). All youth are asked to bring a towel and a change of clothes. The event will end at 9:30. You can also check out what else is happening at CCKY this term by visiting their website at and by watching the video below.

Stephanie-Elise Melrose reviews the recently concluded Newday 2010 youth conference. On 11th August, 73 CCK youth plus numerous leaders and servers, gathered at the Norfolk Showground for Newday 2010. Whilst not exactly the sunny spot we encountered last year, this year’s conference more than made up for the weather in terms of amazing encounters with God and the challenge of living out the love of Jesus.

Elder at CCK, Matt Davis, writes this series of blog posts to explain our Zone structure here at CCK. Why Zones? Good question!  This series will serve to help you understand how and why we are building community through Zones, and our vision for their impact in the future. Amongst others, we will answer questions such as ‘Where are the Zones? Who are the Leaders? What is Zone Life? How do I join a Small Group?’ In basic terms, a Zone is simply a cluster of Small Groups that relate based on their geographical location in the City. There is also another type of Zone which is set up to serve a particular demographic (ie. Internationals or Youth).  At the time of writing we have 14 such Zones. We are beginning to see the reality of this prophetic dream!
