Activities

Morning Gathered Worship

Every Sunday morning from 10:30am to 11:50pm around 80 people meet to listen to the bible, pray and worship, during which provision is made for around 20 children.

House Groups

Opportunities to read the Bible, pray and talk to other Christians are provided:

Friday Friends

Since 2007 Friday Friends (see video here) has been a meeting place for 30 plus senior citizens. The group meets weekly throughout the year between 1:30pm 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.

Evening Prayer and Praise

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.

Prayer

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.

Church Meals

On the Third Sunday of every month (apart from August and December) there is a bring and share lunch in the Family Centre after our morning service 

Sharing Lunch Nov 2016

Overseas Aid

10% of money given to our church goes to overseas aid.  This is split equally between Tearfund and the BMS World Mission. In addition, we have an annual fund raising dinner for overseas aid.

Other churches

During the year we take part in activities with other churches:

Every Tuesday at 8am our Pastor and the vicar of St Andrew’s church, Cherry Hinton say Morning Prayer together (and members of both churches are welcome to join them).

Each Spring on Good Friday we have a walk of witness starting at St Andrew’s.  We stop five times for a reading, a song and a prayer.  We finish with tea and coffee at Dorrington’s. 

Fireworks party

Fireworks 2014

Between 2010 and 2017 we hosted a bring and share fireworks party for the community in the manse garden (95 High Street) between 5:30 & 6:30pm which was attended by around 100 people

In 2018 this was discontinued due to family commitments of the Pastor.
