Sundays 10.30am and 5pm
The church building is on St Matthew’s Street Cambridge CB1 2LT There is a map here.
There is a free church car park clearly signposted. Most local street parking is free on Sundays, please check the signs. If arriving a little late on a busy shopping day you may need to park a 5 minute walk away in the Beehive centre (free for a limited number of hours) or the Grafton shopping centre multi storey car park.
We give you a warm welcome and a Bible then you can choose a seat wherever you feel comfortable. We always have visitors as well as regulars and you can join in with as much or as little as you like. There will be songs, hymns and prayers with words on screens, a talk from the Bible about Jesus with implications for contemporary life, and sometimes an interview or opportunity to ask questions. We finish after about 70 minutes. If you can stay for hot or cold drinks (or pizza after 5pm) then others will come over to meet you.
There are lots of families at 10.30am. We start together with a children's talk or a song with actions or instruments. After that trained staff and volunteers lead crafts, games and Bible teaching in four age groups in separate rooms around the building. Children can stay with a parent, sibling or friend if that helps them settle in. There is a supervised creche and a sound-proof side room with glass so parents can still see and hear. There are baby-changing facilities, toddler toys and high chairs. You can keep your buggy with you, feel free to move a chair.
We put simple English explanations on screen so you have time to read and translate. There are printed talk notes so you can arrive early to prepare or use them to help you listen, or to translate for someone else. We have an international fellowship group in simple English which meets after 5pm and the team speak several languages.
We have large print Bibles and a hearing loop. We project key information on screens as well as announcing it verbally. The welcome team can give you printed sermon notes to follow if that is helpful. Assistance dogs are welcome. We have church members who use sign language.
There is free disabled parking near the entrance by kind of permission of our neighbours, Age UK. The main entrance is wide enough and there are no steps or slopes. There is space to get around the building and a disabled toilet. The welcome team will offer to remove a chair if you'd like to choose a spot or sit with others you know.
