Welcome to Pathfinder Church: why not join the adventure?

praying, exploring and sharing

We are starting a new adventure here in Northstowe! Like any group of pilgrims on a journey, we expect that we will be changed as we travel. We’ll be changed by the people and places we meet, and as God works in and through us. If you’d like to be part of this journey… if you are willing to help shape us, and be shaped by that encounter… come and walk a while with us as we follow Jesus Christ — The Pathfinder. 

Our normal pattern is to gather every Sunday to meet with God, meet with one another, and go out equipped to make a difference in the places God calls us.  We are committed to allowing everyone to grow in their faith, acknowledging that some people (no matter how young or old!) respond best to quiet reflection and others to more interactive experiences. We believe that children have much to teach us, and wherever possible meet together across the generations, giving a choice of activities.

Our main focus for prayer and worship is Sunday afternoons (meeting at 3.30pm).

On Sunday mornings, we partner with the community.

On the first Sunday we do something half way between: our Breakfast Gatherings offer those of faith and those without to eat together and talk about things that matter, while optional activities allow people to dig deeper at the pace they feel comfortable. 


We are also part of the wider Northstowe Community, helping run The Micro Wing Thing every Wednesday during Term (3.30-4.30pm, The Wing, Northstowe) and the monthly Wing Wednesdays (4-9.30pm, 2nd Wednesdays of the month, The Wing, Northstowe).

Pathfinder Way,

Join us for Circuit Training for the Body, Mind, and Soul!

We're delighted to be partnering with Living Sport and the Cambridge Food Hub to run a pop up café during the over 18s taster events (10am -3pm)... and then working with Living Sport and Kickstart to bring all the ages together for 2 hours of something pretty different, starting at 3.30pm in Pathfinder School Hall.

Active Church is a game of two halves focussed on “Under Pressure”.

The First Half features circuit training for body, mind, and soul, suitable for all ages, with an active warm up, video clip, egg and spoon racing, circle chase, orange in hoops, cup tower, arrow prayers, and the balance game,

The Second Half includes Mr Ball's multisports (for children) and the opportunity to join conversations about how we find balance under pressure for adults... or simply hang out around the community table tennis table.
