Christmas 

1Christmas 2020 may not be as we would hope, but it is absolutely not cancelled! As more activities are planned or confirmed this page will be updated.

Christingle

Usually we celebrate our Christingle service in the run up to Christmas; sharing carols, making our Christingles and then lighting the candles in the darkened church all while raising funds for The Children's Society.

We are really disappointed not to be able to do this this year. However, we'd love to see your Christingle creations, whether you make one with fruit or building blocks! Why not share them to our Facebook page: www.facebook.com/cambournechurch

If you'd like to make a donation to the work of The Children's Society, please visit www.cambournechurch.org.uk/christingle and click on donate.

What does a Christingle look like? And what do the parts represent?  have a look at this video featuring the Bishop of Ely to find out:


Christmas Hamper Project

The Christmas Hamper Project (started in 2013) aims to bring the love of God in a very practical and tangible way to a number of local families and individuals who are in need at Christmas time.

In the days before Christmas 2019, a total of 26 hampers were packed with goodies for local families and individuals.  Those who received a hamper had been referred to us by the four Cambourne primary schools, the Children’s Centre and by the church itself.Christmas Hampers Landscape  The hampers were delivered to the schools etc who then distributed them to the families during the last week of the term.

We would love to be able to bless families again this year. Donations would be appreciated, delivered to the church office during opening hours (these are variable during this time, please call 01954710644 or email office@cambournechurch.org.uk to confirm before coming) but Tuesday 8th December. Alternatively, you can give a financial contribution via our giving page; if you do this please mention the hamper project in the additional details box so we can track what money has been donated for it. All financial donations made in this way will be used to purchase Christmas treat foods to add in to the hampers.

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


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.
