Cambourne Distribution Centre

foodbank 3

The Cambourne Distribution Centre of the Cambridge City Foodbank has sessions in the Old Blue School (just behind the church building) every Thursday morning 10.00am-12.00pm. The Foodbank remains open despite the closure of the Old Blue School to most users and the latest movement restrictions.

Just an update from Cambridge City Foodbank.
Things have moved on fast and so many of the agencies are closing down. If you require a Foodbank voucher and don't have access to one, the best thing to do is to contact Citizen's Advice Bureau on 0344 848 7979 between 10 am and 3.30pm or send a message via their website which might be quicker https://www.cambridgecab.org.uk/. They should be able to issue code-only vouchers over the phone. It is important that clients do have a voucher before coming to the distribution centre at the Blue School which will be open Thursday morning between 10-12 noon.


CCFB operates as part of the Trussell Trust network, which coordinates the largest network of food banks nationally. Food banks offer three days of emergency food for individuals and families in crisis. In Cambourne the team of volunteers is comprised of members of the church and the community who are all passionate about getting as many families as possible to access food when life is challenging and to offer space to listen and talk over a cup of tea.

To be able to receive food from the Foodbank a voucher is required. There are several voucher holders in Cambourne, for example: family workers, all GPs at Monkfield Medical Practice, SCDC, the church minister, schools in Cambourne and several others.

Due to increasing demand we are getting low with stocks of food so if you would like to support the Foodbank please click here for the shopping list of items needed right now or visit the Cambridge City Foodbank website for particular items that might be required or for more information in general.

If you would like to make a donation to the Foodbank there is a collection point in the Co-Op in Lower Cambourne. Unfortunately the church office has no space to store donations.

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:

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.
