Friday Friends LogoFriday Friends ActivitySince 2007 Friday Friends (see video here) has been a meeting place for 30 plus senior citizens.  The group meets weekly throughout the year between 1:30 and 3:30pm each Friday in the family centre.  Typically there is a craft table, a knitting table, a card table and a scrabble table.  The knitting table works tirelessly providing blankets and other goods for those in need.  There is tea and cake, a general knowledge quiz and a short epilogue, with a hymn and a prayer.  We have a speaker once a term and usually enjoy a trip out in the summer.  We also enjoy roast lunches at key moments through the year.  We welcome any retired person of all faiths and no faith.  We seek to build a caring atmosphere where friendships are developed which often extend beyond the group and can become supportive relationships which are significant if ill health or other difficulties arise.  We do all this with much fun and laughter.    

Youth Group FootballPool, Table tennis, Darts, Computer game

Youth Group aims to be an inclusive and safe environment in which children can enjoy a variety of social activities, so that they develop good relationships with each other.  We welcome all children, celebrating good behaviour and not welcoming behaviour which is hurtful.  

Youth Group is open to older Primary school and younger Secondary school children, every Friday in term time in the Family Centre from 6:30 to 7:40 (for school years 4-6) and 7:50-9:00 (for school years 7-9).  While the Youth Group is open most Fridays in term time, check Dairy for actual opening dates. The Youth Group is staffed by Christians in Cherry Hinton who attend a variety of churches.

Football, dodgeball and Unihoc in the floodlit car park give an opportunity for team games, and the tuck shop allows for sugar levels to be topped up.  Less strenuous games include table tennis, pool, darts, table football, computer games and board games.  There is always “something to think about” which takes a variety of forms, including themed games or informal discussion.

Each Sunday morning during Gathered Worship (10:30-11:50) there is a program of activities for children under the umbrella of Value Builders.  Currently Value Builders is separated between a younger group (children can be left without parents from about 2 onwards to 5/6 years old), a middle group (6-11 year olds) and a secondary school group (11-16 year olds).  Typically, there are between 6 and 10 children in each group.  We aim to share faith through games, stories, physical activity and craft activities introducing children to prayer, worship and bible ‘study’ through these means, having

There is a free-form prayer and praise meeting from 6:30pm to 7:30pm every other Sunday evening (see diary for details). During these meetings anyone present may contribute a scripture, a thought, a prayer and/or a song. Tea and coffee are served from 6pm

During the CHBC evening service we seek to focus on God together, and see where that takes us.
We tend to start with a passage of scripture, usually from the morning service, because this may have been brooding inside some of those present in the afternoon.

In addition to private prayer, there are opportunities to pray together every Sunday 9:30 to 10am in the main church building.  There is also a prayer partnership chain.
