What to expect on a Sunday

We hope you will find answers to your main questions below, but if you still have questions, please feel free to Contact us.

How do I find the church?

We worship on a Sunday in Almancil. You can find directions and a google map on the Finding Us page.

What are the services like?

We aim to make our worship services accessible and inclusive.

We follow a clear and simple format similar to other Anglican churches worldwide. This may include Communion, prayer, reminders of our beliefs and a talk based on a passage from the Bible. Our musicians lead us in a mix of traditional hymns and contemporary songs of worship and occasionally we have a choir.

How long will the service last?

The morning services normally last between 60 and 70 minutes.

At the end of the service we normally gather at a local café for refreshments, for those who wish to stay. This would be a great opportunity for you to get to know us better and we'd love to have you join us.

Will there be something for my children?

Yes, during the summer: 2nd & 4th Sundays

Children ages 5 to 11 are welcome to join us for a fun Bible message during the sermon.

Parents, you are welcome to join us in accompanying your children who are younger than 5 years old!

Is there plenty of parking?

There is plenty of parking.

Is there disabled access to the church?

People with disabilities are very welcome.

What time do I need to arrive?

The morning service starts at 10:30 in Almancil. To allow yourself time to find your way and get settled we would recommend you arrive between 10 and 15 minutes before the service starts.

What happens when I arrive?

When you arrive you will be welcomed by one of our members and provided with anything necessary for you to take part in the service.

There are no reserved seats so feel free to sit wherever you feel most comfortable, either inside or outside.

Do I need to bring any money?

During the service we take up an offering from our regular congregation towards the ongoing work of the church and our support of mission and Christian compassion.

Please do not feel obliged to contribute if you are visiting.

What should I wear?

When you come and spend some time with us at Christ The King, we want you to feel comfortable and at ease. There is no dress code.


Will there be a translator if I don't speak English?

All our services are conducted in English, however if you don't have a good understanding of English please let us know and we can provide someone to help you during the service. We are able to provide a service sheet in Portuguese.
