CAMBOURNE CHURCH SUNDAY SERVICES


Update 28 September 2020

The prime minister has made it clear that we will be subject to restrictions because of COVID-19 for many months ahead, and the regulations on gathering may yet become stricter. So whatever plans we make may be subject to change. Nevertheless, we want to let you know that Church Council and the Worship Planning Group have approved a plan for limited re-opening for worship on Sundays. We have held a number of short communion services over recent weeks on Monday afternoons. We now intend to move these to Sunday mornings at 9.30am. Places will be limited, and there will be a booking system, as there has been for the Monday communions.

So from Sunday 4th October we will have a short service in the church building each Sunday at 9.30am. Places will need to be booked. This will usually be a communion service, although if a minister is not available to preside over communion at any point we will still hold a short 9.30am service with Bible readings and prayer. There will be no singing and no refreshments. Those attending should wear masks and the seating will be arranged to allow for social distancing. Also those who are unwell or who have members of their household experiencing COVID-19 symptoms should not attend. If you wish to book for the service please visit this page or contact the church office on 01954 710644.

We will continue to produce Sunday Different, our online service, which will be premiered on YouTube at 10.15am each week as before. This will be our main service for musical worship and for preaching and teaching. It is hoped that we will screen that service in the building at 10.15am so that any who have attended the communion service can choose to stay for Sunday Different as well.

We will no longer be opening the church building on Monday afternoons for communion and private prayer, unless there is a clear desire and need for this.

As from 4th October we will no longer be holding our weekly Sunday morning online prayer meeting because the timing clashes with the 9.30am communion service. We hope to make other arrangements for corporate prayer.


Remember the church is the people, not the building.

We are still Cambourne Church.

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.
