Melbourn’s Churches together

Melbourn Baptist Church:

All Saints’ Easter Services

Sunday Services are at 10.30 am (while children have a separate service in the Hall) with Evening Communion at 6.00pm on the first Sunday of the month. Everyone is welcome and most people stay for refreshments afterwards. ‘Toddler Plus’ weekly Tuesday sessions and ‘Craft Morning’ weekly Wednesday sessions , both at 9.30am, will run throughout the school term (but not during Easter holidays, Apr 5-19th). Both sessions are held in the Baptist Church Hall and anyone interested is welcome. More details can be found on our website:

Melbourn United Reformed Church Friday Morning Coffee The Church hall is open from 10.30 – 12.30pm for coffee and a chat. Our Fairtrade stall is also available. All welcome

Reflective Services These services are usually held on the second Wednesday of the month and are about an hour long giving a chance to forget the hustle and bustle of the day, a time for contemplation around a theme, music and readings. Service starts at 7pm in the parlour room at the back of the church, providing an informal atmosphere.

Homelessness Sunday On Sunday 25th Jan we again marked Homelessness Sunday with a collection of clothing and non-perishable goods for Jimmy’s Nightshelter in Cambridge. Over the Christmas period we also collected our pennies, which will also be donated to Jimmy’s.

Slide Evenings “I’ve finished surveying the ‘Wondrous Cross’ thought Thomas … “Now where do I send the invoice”

In Feb/March we will be hosting several slide evenings from various groups in the church and we also hope to show the recent film ‘Son of Man’ a contemporary retelling of the story of Christ set in modern-day Africa. in melbournmagazine
