The Pete Mear Grant 

freely-mark-alexandrovich-6042The Pete Mear Grant is a fund to support young people in development of skills to contribute to and lead worship to be used within Cambourne Church or more widely.
Grants of up to £200 (per application) are available for individuals. Group applications will be considered on a case by case basis.

Background
Pete Mear was a passionate worship leader who was a significant part of the life of Cambourne Church. He had a particular desire to support young people in developing skills that would enable them to grow their own musical talents and contribute to worship in the church and beyond. Sadly Pete died in 2017 but his passion lives on in a financial legacy he left to Cambourne Church to continue to support young people in worship ministry. The Pete Mear Grant is open to those who want to develop or enhance their contributions to worship ministry in Cambourne Church and further afield. Funds are available for a variety of possible scenarios, for example (but not limited to) training in music or audio visual skills, purchasing of equipment and attendance of relevant courses or events.

Eligibility criteria
Applications are welcome from those who fulfil the following criteria:
• Aged between 8 and 25 years old at the time of application.
• Already involved in leading worship or supporting music or multimedia production at Cambourne Church (or can demonstrate willingness to become involved).

Support for those in receipt of awards
Individuals who are in receipt of an award can expect to meet with a member of the Pete Mear Grant Committee at the outset and again at a mutually agreed time to offer support and discuss progress. This will be arranged on a case by case basis depending on the individual situation.

Evaluation
It will be expected that all applicants will provide a written statement at an agreed time to explain the benefit they have experienced as a result of the fund. This statement can be written with support from a member of the Pete Mear Grant Committee if this is helpful.

Deadline for applications
Applications will be considered at a meeting several times per year but can be considered in between meetings depending on circumstances. The first deadline for applications is 29th February 2020.

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.

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
Cambourne
Cambs
CB23 6AF

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.
