Colburn: St Cuthbert

St Cuthbert's, Colburn, a copper-roofed estate church, was built for residents the new 1950s development. Along with its busy, recently-refurbished Community Hall, it houses a thriving & welcoming congregation. Our aim is always to be, 'A warm and welcoming church, open to the wider community, confident in Jesus' love and presence'. During recent years, the congregation of St Cuthbert's has grown considerably, embracing a series of new approaches. We are loosely New Wine affiliated, have nearly completed our third Alpha, and are passionate about introducing local people to Jesus. The lay volunteer team is growing, with regular prayer - and prayer ministry - increasingly important to us. Our monthly, lay-led evening Praise & Worship services are now well established.  Our Wednesday morning all-age Drop-in (9 -11.30am), now five years old, welcomes up to 40 individuals, including parents/carers & babies/toddlers, alongside older folk - both men and women, and hosts a creative craft group. Our Veterans' and Community Art Group (Tuesdays 10am - 12noon) has been running for four years, and is a well-led & welcoming group. We love to engage with our local community, and run annual free Big Family Fun Days. We are delighted to be exploring closer links with 'King's Church', whose base is at Colburn Village Hall, just nearby, and providing a warm and up-to-date building for the local refugee community's education programme.
