Join a Small Group


At Cambray we encourage everyone to be part of a small group as we believe that this is the best place for discipleship, accountability and applying the Bible.

If you are looking to join a group, feel free to contact the leaders directly (details below).  If you want to chat with our Small Group Co-ordinator to find out more, contact Fred Hughes (or phone 07808 816532).
