If the place of religeous worship (church, synagogue) registered as a charity and have a trading activity providing venue for hire for various non religious events like renting a space to the nursery, etc. Should they be registered for corporation tax?

Charities have to be recognised as charities by HMRC to get the available tax exemptions. If recognised, then any income is usually free of tax so long as it is put towards whatever the charitable purpose is. Any income that isn't put towards whatever the charitable purpose is, will be subject to tax. So it's not really about registering for corporation tax, but registering to be recognised as a Charity, and reap the tax relief that goes with it.
