Mums - A found poem by Cambourne Church

During the Mothering Sunday service on Mother’s Day 2019,
we asked people to text in suggestions for how to end to the phrase ‘Mum’s are…’ 
The following poem is made up of the responses which were sent in.
Dads are the boss until Mums come home.
Mums are all around us,
they are our friends and family,
they nurture us and care for us
so that we grow into the people that express the best of our abilities
and we are so grateful for them and their endless love for us.
Mums are amazing.
Mums are awesome.
Mums are beautiful.
Mums are caring.
Mums are flawless.
Mums are God’s best invention.
Mums are great.

Mums know everything.
Mums love us and work for our benefit.
Mums are the messengers of God’s life delivery.
Mums are the ones we turn to when we need comfort and encouragement.
Mums are the people who keep us safe.
Mums are not perfect (but do their best).
Mums are not always those with children.
Mums are not recognised as important enough until we no longer have one.
Mums are who make the world go round.
They are there for us when we hit low.
They welcome us with open arms when we have done wrong.
The relationship between a mother and her child is unending love.

Welcome Visitors

New to Church?

00 Welcome

Welcome! Whether you've just moved to the area, or have lived here all your life, we hope our website helps you to find out everything you want to know about our Church.

When & where does the church meet?

Due to the latest government advice regarding the protection of our community during the Coronavirus pandemic we have taken the unprecedented and sad, but necessary, decision to suspend all church gatherings including home groups and Sunday Worship until further notice.

Through this time of restrictions due to COVID-19 you can find our main Sunday offering, Sunday Diffferent, on our YouTube channel A new service premieres each Sunday at 10.15am and is available to watch at any time after then.
Please look at our Facebook page and this website for further details about how we will be walking together at this difficult time.

Sunday morning services are normally held at 9.30am & 11.00am; the 9.30am service is more traditional and reflective, while the 11.00am service is more contemporary with activities offered for children and young people. Communion is celebrated on the second and fourth Sunday of the month. We all meet together at 10.00am during the month of August. On the fourth Sunday of the month at 7pm there is an informal service called Encounter. 

We meet at:

Cambourne Church
Jeavons Lane
CB23 6AF

You can see a map on our contact us page

There is limited parking available on the site.

What should I expect when I visit the church?

You will receive a very warm welcome particularly from our Welcome Team who will be able to answer your questions and direct you to where you need to go. There will be some singing to start with as well as some prayers and a reading from the bible. There will be a talk (some reflections) from one of the leaders of the church, with a chance to discuss it further at the end of the service. 

Tea, coffee and biscuits are served after the service where there is plenty of time to meet new people and ask more questions.

What is there for children and young people at church?

We have a fantastic programme for the children and young people at the Church for ages 0–18. Children and young people stay with their families at the start of the service as we worship (sing songs!) together for the first part of the morning. Someone will announce when the children and young people need to go to their programme. We have young church for those from 0 - Yr 6 and a youth group called Xtreme for our young people in years 7-11. 

For more information about what happens in the children's and youth work please visit the relevant age group section under church life.

Is there a dress code?

No! Please just be yourself and come dressed in your 'normal' clothes.

Will I have to join in?

Not at all!
You are free to simply observe or participate as much as feels comfortable for you.
