Get involved

There are many ways to get involved with the life and activities of our church.

Having you at our services is a great encouragement to everyone – meeting together, sharing our fellowship and supporting each other is an essential part of church life (24 And let us consider how to provoke one another to love and good deeds, 25 not neglecting to meet together, as is the habit of some, but encouraging one another, and all the more as you see the Day approaching. Hebrews 10 v 24-25 NRSV).

As we seek to meet together, encourage one another and share the good news of God’s love with our neighbours, there are practical ways in which individuals can help out. Speak to us or contact us if you would like to become more involved in church life, or see our pages on giving and volunteering.

Become a member

By joining the parish electoral roll, you become a full member of the church, with the ability to vote on important decisions. The electoral roll is meant to reflect the number of people involved in our parish life so, if you are a regular member of the congregation, signing up helps this to be a true representation of our members.

Forms are available in church or you can download a copy to print yourself here.

Please complete and sign the form then return it to our Electroll Roll Officer, Janet Hendy,The Bakehouse, 1a Grantchester Road, Trumpington, CB2 9LH.
