At the heart of our community is the Cambourne Church which is the Parish Church for Cambourne. Cambourne Church is a multi-denominational church formed by a partnership between the Church of England, the Methodist Church, the United Reformed Church and the Baptist Church. In addition a Roman Catholic mass takes place once-a-week in the Church building.
Cambourne Church is a fresh expression of church and welcomes all people - those who have faith and those who are searching. Please see our website for more information: www.cambournechurch.org.uk

The Vine School Church Family
I have been the minister of Cambourne Church since late September 2019, and am now a familiar face within the school community. I lead worship for the whole school most Wednesday mornings when I explore themes which fit in with the school’s overall worship programme. It is one of the most rewarding parts of my ministry. Historically, other members of Cambourne Church, most especially our children and families worker, as well as ministers from the local Methodist circuit have also contributed to this programme of Wednesday worship. This team approach will continue.
My own daughter attends the school, I am a school governor, and I am involved in other aspects of the school’s life – occasional contributions to lessons, meetings with senior leaders, attendance at school performances, and so on. It is a privilege and joy that so many of the children greet me out and about in the town.
The partnership between the Vine Inter-Church Primary School and Cambourne Church has been there from the school’s very inception, and I want those links to develop and grow in response to new opportunities and challenges. It is not my role to impose the Christian faith on the members of our school community, but it is my role to open up the possibility of living in relationship with God and to bring wisdom and insight from our faith into the educational setting.
