Welcome & Worship
Tea, coffee and refreshments are available from 10:45am until our service begins at 11am. This is a time to relax, find your bearings and connect, we would love you to join us. Our morning services begin with a short welcome and church news, which may include stories, information and upcoming events. We then have a time of celebration and sung worship. This normally lasts 15 minutes and will be directed from the front by our service leader and band. All the words are on the screens so if you want to, you can sing along. We encourage you to relax and engage at your own pace, even if that means not singing at all. During this time our kids will go to kids church, our team should have already greeted you when you arrived and registered your child.
We also express our thanks to God through our tithes and offerings at this point in the service. You are under no obligation at all to give.
Children aged 0-10 go to kids church during our time of worship, so this will give you plenty of time to register your kids and get them settled with our trained and awesome volunteers. They will play, do arts and craft, sing songs, learn bible stories and be cared for by our wonderful team and you can collect them after the service ends.
Normally after our time of worship we have a relevant and meaningful talk that is designed to last around 30 minutes. Our talks are biblical, challenging and applicable to all of our lives. At the end of the talk we often provide an opportunity to make a decision to begin a journey with Jesus; there is no pressure in this moment and if at any point you want to find out more about what that means, our team at the connection point or prayer area would love to chat to you after the service and will provide you with an exploring faith pack.
After the service, you can pop by the connection point in the foyer just to say hello or find out more about the life of CFC. Our hosting team in blue t-shirts are always happy to help or direct you at any time throughout the morning.
Kids and Youth
Kids Aged 0-10
We have a kids church environment for all kids aged 0-10 during our morning service. Your children will stay with you during the start of the service but will go out to kids church during our time of sung worship. We have a great team of trained awesome volunteers. They will play, sing songs, do arts and crafts, learn bible stories and be cared for by our wonderful team. You will then collect them in the kids church room at the end of the service.
Youth Aged 10-14 (P6-Yr10s)
Youth church is a fun and vibrant gathering where youth eat breakfast, worship God and explore bible teaching, that happens before the Sunday service on the 2nd and 4th Sundays of the month from 10:15-10:55. It's purpose is to help each young person thrive in their discipleship journey. Outside of Sundays the team plan to do social outings on Friday or Saturday evenings every 6 weeks or so to build friendship and community with our youth.
We are creating a culture of expectant prayer and worship in the heart of community. You are welcome to join us:
Weekly, on Sunday at 10:15am to worship, listen, and call out to God for one another, our City and our Nation.
