Sunday Service FAQs

Will I need to wear a mask to come to church?

For all our indoor services, you are required to wear a mask during the service. If you are mask exempt, please wear a lanyard stating this (we do not require a reason) or request one from a team member on the door.

How long is the service? 

We aim for the service itself to last about 40-50 minutes (worship, preach, and prayer) then, we hope to have time for Coldhams Coffee or The C3 Truck to be open to grab a coffee and head outside. We want to encourage you to stick to government guidelines of socialising in groups of no more than six.

Is there anything happening for Kids at the Sunday Services? 

Kids Church is will be starting in October. You will need to book your children into Kids Church. If there are no kids spaces available, feel free to book them an Auditorium seat instead. At the Cambridge location, a Live Link will be running in rooms 2/3 for guardian accompanied children. Please ensure your children have warm clothing and coats as we may be hosting Kids Church outside at both locations.

What measures are in place to keep me safe? 

When inside, we will ensure that the amount of people does not exceed what is safe according to government guidelines. We require everyone, except for those public speaking or singing, to wear a mask inside. Our team will be on hand to ensure social distancing and we will have hand sanitiser stations at all entrances and exits. There is also a strict one-way system throughout the buildings. With tickets being required, we are able to connect to the test and trace system and ensure that should there be an outbreak, we can let all who attended the service know as soon as possible. When outside, there is no need to wear masks (unless it makes you feel more comfortable) and we will ensure there is adequate space for everyone to safely socially distance. These measures are subject to change in line with government guidelines.

When will things go back to "normal" at C3? 

We are keeping a close eye on government guidelines regarding how places of worship can function. As much as we would like to have everyone in at both our locations, we want to take your safety seriously and we will continue to make decisions prayerfully as we move forward. We plan to continue our online services, regardless of how things change with in-person church. Our online community will always be available and we are so pleased that so many of our church family continue to connect online during this season. 

Is Coldhams open on Sundays?

We will open up Coldhams Coffee in Cambridge before and after the service. This will allow you to grab a coffee enjoy it. There will be a strict one-way system and you will need to wear a mask whilst you order and wait for your drinks. Coldhams will only be accepting contactless payments.

How does the live broadcast affect Cambridge services?

As we will be live broadcasting our 10am Service in Cambridge from October, there are some things you need to be aware of:

  • We may not be able to admit you to the Auditorium after 9.50am as we start the stream at 9.55am and the noise could be a problem.
  • Coldhams will stop serving coffee at 9.45am to ensure everyone is seated in time.
  • We would ask that if your child is in the Auditorium with you and they make noise, that you exit to the Live Link or through to Coldhams to watch the rest of the service.
  • Our Connect Team will be ensuring that you use the correct doors to enter and exit the Auditorium (should you need to during the service) please adhere to their guidelines at all times, we are trying to make the experience excellent for everyone - whether watching online or in person.
