We will be holding our Annual CFC Finance Meeting on 6th October. We will present the accounts for the year ended 2021.

More details for how CFC members can register will follow, but for now, please put the date in your diary.
Open door is a gathering of people of many ages. We meet on the last Thursday of the month 10:30am to 2 pm in the café at CFC East. Please join us for tea/coffee, lunch, chat and a varied programme of events. We are restarting on Thursday, the 29th of September.
|Pre Marriage Course|
The Pre-Marriage Course runs over a Friday evening and Saturday 9.30am to 4pm and is designed for couples considering marriage, whether engaged or not, and wishing to build a strong and lasting relationship.
While based on Christian principles, it is relevant and helpful for any couple with or without a Christian faith or church background. Looking at topics such as communication, finances and conflict, the next course will run on 14th and 15th October 2022 in CFC East.
The course is mandatory for couples who are getting married in CFC or by someone from CFC.

Solo is an amazing ministry run in CFC that reaches out to single parents and their children. Every other week the parents come and have dinner made for them, whilst their kids are looked after and fed. We need two or three people to help look after the children on alternate Tuesdays from 5.45pm-7.30pm. It would involve setting up the room for the children, playing with them and serving them dinner. The children we currently have are aged from 3-9 years old.If you have a heart for these kids and their mums, and could commit to being there, we would love to hear from you! Please click here to email Arlene.
Two years ago a group of CFC’ers started to make sandwiches for people who find themselves living on the streets and destitute. Since then, they have made over 23,000 sandwiches – many of the ingredients are bought using the CFC Compassion Fund. How fantastic is it to know that you have fed 23,000 people, giving them something substantial when they are most in need. If you’d like to get involved in this team, please click here to email us.
As prices in the shops soar and electric and gas prices increase, we recognise that many people are struggling to make ends meet. In CFC, we have a fund set up to help with everything from an electric top up to school uniforms, from a weekly shop to an MOT test. We can also help with furniture or clothes and referrals to the food banks. If you or anyone you know is struggling (in CFC or not) support is available. You can find out more information by talking to one of our Site Pastors or pastoral team, on the Compassion page of our website or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
ChurchSuite is the method we use to communicate with those who call CFC their home. By signing up to ChurchSuite you are able to receive emails from your Site Pastor, sign up for events, manage your rota for teams you serve on, and lots more.
