Welcoming your child 

pexels-lisa-2721581Congratulations on the birth of your child.

Since Cambourne Church is a Local Ecumenical Partnership (a partnership of the Church of England, Baptist Union, United Reformed Church and Methodist Church) we are able to offer a range of services suited to people of different traditions and backgrounds. The services below offer different emphases and demand different levels of commitment. We will work with you to ensure that the occasion is special for you and your family. 

Christening (Baptism)
A service for Christians who see this as an incorporation of their child into the life of the church and the beginning of their Christian journey through life.

Thanksgiving
This is a service to say ‘Thank you’ to God for the gift of the newborn, pray for the child and pray for the parents.

Dedication
A service for Christians who want their child to be welcomed into the family of the church but who believe that it is for the child themselves if and when they are baptised. 

If you are interested in bringing your child to Cambourne Church for one of these services please contact the church office and we can begin the process of arranging that.

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 www.youtube.com/cambournechurch. 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
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.
