REAL at Christ Church

REAL is a ministry of Christ Church Chorleywood for anyone aged 10 - 14. We believe that Jesus is more than just a character in an ancient book. We believe that he is real, that he loves us, and he wants to give us life in all it's fullness. Real is there to give God space to show young people he is real and that he loves them.  


All of our groups are running term time at Christ Church Chorleywood and we'd love you to join us. There's no need to sign up and we don't charge, just come along.

If you'd like more details, or if it's your first time and you're not sure if you'll know anyone, email: and one of our team will get back to you.

Have a look through the groups below.

The REAL Leadership course is an opportunity to commit time to God, asking him to grow you as a disciple and as a leader who ‘gives God space in your life’.


REAL Leadership is a 5-month course, starting in February and finishing in the June.

Leadership mornings: We run 5 training mornings over the 5 months, teaching some foundational skills and habits to help young leaders grow in leadership as well as strengthening their relationship with God.

Discipleship through community: Over the 5 months they will be supporting each other in spending time with God every day as they work through a reading plan taking them through the entire New Testament.

Practical Leadership: Young leaders sign on to one of our teams, or the teams of one of our ministry partners, to get an opportunity to practice and receive regular feedback on their development from our trusted supervisors.

Mentoring: Each attendee will also receive a mentor, to work with them on a one to one level, offering advice and support.
