We understand it can be daunting if you’ve never been to a church service before. To make it easier, this page gives you some idea of what to expect and what a church service is really like.
Our Sunday Gatherings provide an opportunity for us to meet together to learn from God’s word and enjoy each other’s fellowship.
Morning service: 10:30am
Join us for our all-age family worship service.
A creche is available throughout both services as well as age-specific classes run during the services for children and young people in Pre-school to Year 11 (3-16 years of age).
Evening service: 6.30pm
Join us for our evening gathering, which is more intimate, and spends a bit more time in God's word.
We love God’s word and our Sunday Gatherings faithfully teach from the Bible
each week, as well as spend time in sung worship, in prayer, in hearing testimony to all God is doing amongst us, and in fellowship together. We tend to work through books from both the Old and New
When you arrive
There are purpose-built ramps for wheelchair access to the main church and also wheelchair lift access down to the Halls to the back of the church building.
When you come into the building, someone will greet you at the door and offer you a copy of the weekly news sheet (and a large print copy of the songs if helpful), although words for the songs are projected onto 2 screens at the front.
Please feel free to sit where you like.
If you want to listen using the induction loop (for those with hearing difficulties) you will find it works best if you sit towards the centre, downstairs. If you use a hearing aid, please switch it to the loop ('T') setting.
Toilets can be found to the right hand side as you enter the foyer and also through the doors to the left of the platform (turn left and along the corridor), along with two disabled toilets.
What's it like?
The service, which typically lasts about 1.5 hours, will normally consist of singing, Bible reading(s), some prayers and a talk.
If you have children, they can either sit with you or join the other children in the front rows. During most Sunday morning services the children aged 3-16 leave for their own fun-filled Bible groups (Glow Sundays and Sunday Youth) part way through. These activities are run by helpers who are DBS checked. We also have a crèche for the under 3s.
Usually an offering or collection is taken, as part of our gifts to God, but please don't feel embarrassed or obliged to give. Simply pass the bags on by! Many Church members give directly through the banking system and so will pass the bags on too.
After the morning service there is usually a chance for tea, coffee or a soft drink, served in the area to the right of the platform. It's a great chance to catch up with others and to find out more about church life at Cambray.
