Resources for adults and all-age resources

Over the next few weeks the church staff are gathering together resources to help us grow and remain close to God in this time. They will be listed here as we find them.

14 May
Bible Chat Mat allows people of all ages to read the Bible and have conversation together, whether around a meal table, sitting on the sofa or wherever works best. This activity can be done as a household, friends together, home group, Sunday group or even in a school club. The sheets can be coloured and doodled on, allowing you to respond to the Bible story in your own unique way. The sheets can be downloaded at the bottom of the linked page.

7 May
Together, Apart, a set of free, intergenerational resources for these strange times when we cannot be with each other. Each week you’ll find Bible study ideas for all ways of learnings and all ages (not just ‘for the kiddies’). You can use them on your own, over Skype with friends, or on the sofa with your little ones and big ones.

1 May
The Church of England has launched a phoneline called Daily HOPE on 0800 804 8044. It is particularly aimed at older people without access to the internet. It is available 24 hours a day and is a freephone number, so there is no charge for the person accessing the service. Callers will hear a greeting from the Archbishop of Canterbury before being able to choose from a range of options, including ‘Prayer During the Day’ and ‘Night Prayer’ updated daily, and a recording of the Church of England’s weekly national online service. A section called Hymn Line also offers callers a small selection of hymns on a loop, updated daily. An option entitled ‘Hymns We Love’, provides a hymn and reflection, and is based on an initiative by Connections, a group focused on ministry among older people.

Please find here a link to a prayer for deliverance from the Coronavirus penned by Pete Greig, founder of the 24-7 Prayer movement. We will be using it on Sunday morning as part of our online worship service so you may find it helpful to print it out. You may also find it a helpful resource for your own times of personal prayer.

24 April
From Debbie Hill, Development Officer for Children and Families, Diocese of Ely
You may be aware that we have Way of Life in Ely Diocese. The Family Way of Life is being rewritten specifically for Coronavirus lockdown times and all sessions are based on the concept of 'Being'. Activities are designed for families with children of different ages to select how they want to explore the theme. Week 1 is available here Being the Body.

21 April
During this period of lockdown ‘Roots’ is offering a range of free resources for people of all ages. These can help us reflect on and engage with the Bible passages that are being read in our Sunday worship. They are specifically designed for families and individuals to use at home.

7 April
David Wadsworth has produced some resources for Good Friday. They can be found here.

6 April
The Church of England and the Methodist Church in Britain do not permit online communion services, even in the context of our current isolation. This is because of strongly held theological convictions. The Church of England has produced this resource for those prevented from partaking of communion and it is offered here as a resource for personal devotion.

27 March
The pattern of prayer of Ffald-y-Brenin, a retreat house in Pembrokeshire where God has been doing amazing things. Until recently, Bill was using this for his morning prayer time, which some of you shared. The daily liturgies are now downloadable for free.

24 March
Wordlive is a well-established online daily devotional from Scripture Union. It provides a passage for the day together with a variety of ways of engaging with it and praying through its message. It is really quite flexible and there is also an associated Facebook group where people can discuss the day's reading and message.

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


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.
