Whether you’re just visiting, looking for a local church to call home or already part of the CCC family, you’re very welcome. This page explains briefly what you can expect at our Sunday meetings. If you have any further questions please feel free to get in touch.

Following the announcement of another national lockdown on 4 January, we’ve prayed and discussed about the best course of action for our Sunday 11:00am meetings during this time. Although churches are legally permitted to open, we’ve taken into consideration the high rate of COVID cases in the area, the increased transmissibility of a new COVID strain and the fact that everyone who has attended in person is also able to access our online meetings. On this basis, we’ve decided for January not to have a congregation in the building and just to live stream on YouTube. We’ll continue to monitor the situation and post any changes here.

Join our live stream

Our 11:00am meeting usually lasts around an hour and may include worship songs, a Bible message, prayer and communion.

Prayer meeting

At present our 10:30 prayer meeting has moved to Zoom. Please email us if you’d like to join in.


Here’s some information about how our Sunday mornings usually look outside of a pandemic!


The main meeting

We begin at 10:30, usually with worship. Our style is contemporary and informal, so please feel free to sit or stand, as you wish. The songs are designed to help us encounter God, and people may also pray or read from the Bible.

We often include communion (breaking of bread) as we remember Jesus’ sacrifice for us. This is open to all who follow Jesus, and we suggest you read 1 Corinthians 11:17-34 for further guidance. There will usually be a relevant message from the Bible. Someone may also share something of their story of faith and how Jesus has helped them.

Children and families

Children’s groups for ages 2 to 16 meet in the Annexe across the car park. The start at around 11:10 will be signalled on the main screen. Sessions include age-appropriate Bible teaching, activities, drama, etc. All our children’s leaders are DBS-checked. For more information please talk to the welcome team.

A crèche area for under-twos and parents is available off the coffee lounge. Children using this space need to be supervised. Alternatively, if you’d like a box of toys for use in the meeting, please ask one of the welcome team – we’re a family church and love children to be involved. A nappy change unit is available in the toilet opposite the crèche room.

After the meeting

We’d love you to stay around and connect with us — tea and coffee are served in the coffee lounge. If you’d like prayer, a team is available to the left of the stage; you’ll see their green badges. The meeting usually concludes by midday. Donations are completely voluntary and a collection is not taken up. If you would like to contribute to the work here, a box is available.

Photos

We sometimes take photos and videos during services. If you’d prefer not to be included, we try not to film in the coffee lounge area, so you’re welcome to sit there. If you have any concerns on the day, please speak to the photographer or the administrator. More details are in our privacy notice.
