New Here?


We understand it can be daunting if you’ve never been to a church service before. To make it easier, this page gives you some idea of what to expect for a Sunday morning service.

First, you need to get to the church building. Here are directions to Cambray, including some free parking places for a Sunday.

When you come into the building, someone will greet you at the door and offer you a copy of the weekly news sheet.  Please feel free to sit wherever you like.



If you have children, they can either sit with you or join the other children in the front rows. During most Sunday morning services the children aged 3-16 leave for their own fun-filled Bible groups (Junior Church and N:Counter) part way through. These activities are run by helpers who are DBS-checked. We also have a crèche for the under 3s.

The service, which typically lasts about 1.5 hours, will normally consist of a time of praise and worship led by a band, Bible reading(s), some prayers and a talk. Usually an offering or collection is taken, as part of our gifts to God… but please don’t feel embarrassed or obliged to give. Simply pass the bags on by! Many Church members give directly through the banking system.

Toilets can be found to the right hand side as you enter and also through the doors to the left of the stage (turn left and along the corridor), along with two disabled toilets.

After the morning service, refreshments are served in the area to the right of the platform. It’s a great chance to catch up with others and to find out more about church life at Cambray.

Please feel free to get in touch if you would like to be shown around the building during the week, or to arrange for someone to meet you on arrival and welcome you.
