Lent and Easter at Cambourne Church 

In 1 Corinthians 15 v.3-4 we find these words, which the apostle Paul wrote to the 

Christians in the city of Corinth:

“For what I received I passed on to you as of first importance: that Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures, that he was buried, that he was raised on the third day according to the Scriptures.”

The events of Good Friday and Easter are described by Paul as “of first importance.

Here are our plans for Maundy Thursday, Good Friday and Easter.

Passover - Credit - Image by Gini George from PixabayMaundy Thursday is the day when we call to mind the last supper at which Jesus washed feet, taught his disciples, and broke bread. We remember his betrayal by Judas, his prayer and arrest in Gethsemane, the plots and schemes of the religious leaders, and the denial by Peter that he even knew his master,

This can be watched live or you can catch up with the recording later – all on our Facebook page

8.00pm Communion Service in the building

Crosses - Credit 'Image by Chris M. Moore from Freely'Good Friday is when we especially recall the crucifixion, death and burial of Jesus.

10.30am Reflective Service in the building, which will also be on Facebook Live.

We aim to broadcast this on our Facebook page so that those who are not in the building can still engage with the service. The camera will be aimed at me so no one in the congregation will be visible.

Easter tomb - Credit 'Image byEaster Day is the day when we celebrate the resurrection – the empty tomb and the encounters between the risen Jesus and his disciples. Death is defeated and Jesus is vindicated.

9.15am Communion in the building

10.30am Zoom Easter Gathering
We plan to have Easter’s main worship service live online over Zoom so that we can better celebrate the resurrection of Jesus together. Please contact the church office for details of this. The songs we will be singing together can be found in a printable format here, or scroll down this page.

There will also be a short Sunday Different recording available so that those who access our services through the YouTube channel will still find an Easter message – even though it will not be our main worship service.

Verse 1
In Christ alone my hope is found
He is my light my strength my song
This Cornerstone this solid Ground
Firm through the fiercest drought and storm
What heights of love what depths of peace
When fears are stilled when strivings cease
My Comforter my All in All
Here in the love of Christ I stand
Verse 2
In Christ alone who took on flesh
Fullness of God in helpless babe
This gift of love and righteousness
Scorned by the ones He came to save
Till on that cross as Jesus died
The wrath of God was satisfied
For every sin on Him was laid
Here in the death of Christ I live
Verse 3
There in the ground His body lay
Light of the world by darkness slain
Then bursting forth in glorious Day
Up from the grave He rose again
And as He stands in victory
Sin's curse has lost its grip on me
For I am His and He is mine
Bought with the precious blood of Christ
Verse 4
No guilt in life no fear in death
This is the power of Christ in me
From life's first cry to final breath
Jesus commands my destiny
No power of hell no scheme of man
Can ever pluck me from His hand
Till He returns or calls me home
Here in the power of Christ I'll stand

Verse 1 
Sacrifice you took upon you
Gave your life, you did not argue
Flesh and blood, you spent it all on me
Here I am I stand before you
Move in me I will not stop you
Take this life and make it what it should be
I really want more of You in my life
I will honour Your sacrifice
Verse 2
You gave Your all upon the cross
Now everything I count as loss that
I may be once more found in You
Touch me with Your holy fire
Fill me with Your love and power
Every breath I breathe I give to you.

Thine be the glory
Risen conquering Son
Endless is the victory
Thou o'er death hast won
Verse 1
Thine be the glory
Risen conquering Son
Endless is the victory
Thou o'er death hast won
Angels in bright raiment
Rolled the stone away
Kept the folded grave clothes
Where Thy body lay
Verse 2
Lo Jesus meets us
Risen from the tomb
Lovingly He greets us
Scatters fear and gloom
Let the church with gladness
Hymns of triumph sing
For her Lord now liveth
Death hath lost its sting
Verse 3
No more we doubt Thee
Glorious Prince of life
Life is nought without Thee
Aid us in our strife
Make us more than conquerors
Through Thy deathless love
Lead us in Thy triumph
To Thy home above

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 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
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.
