What to expect

Going anywhere for the first time can be a bit daunting. So here’s a quick summary of the kind of things you can expect at our churches.

First of all, you’ll receive a warm, friendly welcome. Our sidespeople can introduce you to people you can sit with and who can tell you more about the church – or you’re welcome to sit on your own. And if you don’t understand anything or want to know more, please just ask.

Whether you’re just looking into Christianity for the first time or have been a Christian for many years, it’s our aim that you will be welcomed, encouraged and inspired.

By being part of our churches, we hope you will draw closer to God – and make new and lasting friendships.

What we believe

We are a Christian church and believe that everyone can have relationship with God. We believe this relationship with God is possible because of Jesus (God’s only Son) who invites us to follow Him.

If you are interested in exploring the Christian faith then please come along on a Sunday or find out what courses are currently running in our team.


Our list of children’s activities continues to grow and grow – both in our churches and in the community. On Sunday mornings besides a children's work's at Great Chesterford on the second and fourth Sundays, we also have Cafe Church at Littlebury on the First Sunday of the month and iChurch at Great Chesterford on the third Sunday of the month.
