Welcome to our new minister 

It was a joy to welcome Revd Bill Miller to be inducted as our new minister on Saturday 28th September.

Revd Bill Miller and Cambourne

An introduction from Bill in his own words:

So who is this new minister of Cambourne Church? Who is Bill Miller?

I am a husband of one and a father of three - two boys and a girl. I was previously the minister of Maidstone Baptist Church in Kent and before that of West Bromwich Baptist Church in the Midlands. I have been a probation officer in Coventry, an English teacher in Pakistan and a care assistant in Essex. I have degrees in Natural Sciences, Social Work and Theology. I enjoy watching rugby, but was never very good at playing it. I enjoy stand-up comedy, but sometimes feel guilty at the jokes which make me laugh. I have been involved in quite a number of community projects - especially those working with homeless people. I am someone who loves reconciliation and has been known to shed a tear when a film shows people who were hostile learning to love one another. I am someone who believes in a God who is in the business of reconciliation - turning enemies into friends.

And here I am in Cambourne. I have much to learn as a newcomer, but I am excited to be part of a church that has been building community here ever since the first homes were built. I am excited to be in a church where different Christian traditions are being woven together into one tapestry. And I am greatly looking forward to beginning the next part of my adventure with God here, among you, in this town.

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.
