Coronavirus Support

As we come out of coronavirus, we are holding a combination of online and in-person services.  Spaces at the in-person services must be booked in advance*.  Whilst we are holding two morning services, we have moved the 10.30 am service back to 11.00 am to allow a slightly longer break between the two meetings.  (It is possible that the 11.00 am services might return to being at 10.30 am later in the year.)  

This is currently our pattern as at June 2021:

First Sunday of the month - 9.00 am In-person, 11.00 am In-person and live online.  Both include communion.

Second, fourth and fifth Sundays of the month - 9.00 am In-person, 11.00 am In-person and live online.  

Third Sunday of the month - 11.00 am Online only (a Family Service led by our children's work team).  There are no in-person services on the third Sundays.  (Please note that there is unlikely to be a Family Service in August and plans for that Sunday have not yet been finalised.) 

*To book a space at an in-person service, go to www.crbc.org.uk/events, click on the service and add your name, or email admin@crbc.org.uk as early as possible, or by the preceding Thursday at 9.00 am at the latest.


The church office is operating from home at present (usually Tues-Thurs), so phone calls on the church telephone number are unlikely to be answered.  To contact us, please email admin@crbc.org.uk in the first instance and your message will be forwarded to the appropriate person.  Please also use this email address to find out about any of the online activities.

Parking details
We only have a small car park, so there is usually just enough space for the disabled, the elderly and others with mobility problems. On Sunday mornings only, we generally have the use of some space in the Northgate School car park. This is not available for our use on Sunday evenings or for any midweek activities.

Although we have entrances at both ends of our building, the one which is used by the majority of our visitors, and for the majority of our events, is the entrance from Sidegate Lane West (opposite the junction with Ely Road).

Days & Times

Sunday services take place at 10.30 am and 6.30 pm (however, see above for coronavirus changes), but please see our website for details of our other activities and meetings.
