Welcome to Christ Community Church! We’re passionate about Jesus with a big heart for our town. We believe God has called us to be a large church in a small town impacting every layer of the community. If you would like to stay in touch please visit our welcome board and complete a welcome card.
Who are you? What defines you? A lot of people think their identity comes from what they do. Others think it comes from other people and what has been spoken over them. Join us as we discover a better way and consider what God says in His word. Earlier in the year we looked at the first three chapters of this book called Romans. Much of the focus of these chapters was about humbling us all before the foot of the cross– exposing our hypocrisy and desperate need of salvation. In Romans 4-7 Paul shifts focus and starts to explain that once we’ve seen Jesus for who he is, God gives us a brand new identity. He introduces incredible blessing upon blessing, building us up, opening our eyes to the wonder of what Jesus has done and just how much we’ve been changed.

BAPTISMS – Sunday 22nd November
Shorter service at 10.30am Attleborough Junior immediately followed by baptisms and shared lunch at the Lighthouse
The Bible instructs those responding to the gospel to ‘repent and be baptised every one of you’ (Acts 2:38). Baptism is a wonderful celebration of what God has done in someone’s life. We have a few people already lined up to get baptised on 22nd November. The plan is that we’ll have a shorter service all together at the school and then head to the Lighthouse to watch the baptisms and have a shared lunch together.

Join with thousands across nations for a half night of prayer for all ages. The evening kicks off with a meal at around 6.30pm at the Kings Centre in Norwich. Contact the Church Office to book for the meal.

Join a Community Group
Community Groups are small groups that meet in the week to pray, talk about the Bible, learn, laugh and do mission together. Last year our groups gathered around a specific purpose: whether growing in prayer, worship, spiritual gifts or the word. This term we are restarting our groups and they are going to be uniting around the same material – beginning by exploring the vision and values of groups and then complementing our Sunday teaching sessions. We’re asking you to pray and consider where God wants you to be, encouraging you to gather now based on relationships. You are totally free to stay or move if you were in a previous group. Here’s the details:
Sam and Debs Page are leading a group meeting Wednesdays at 17A Arlington Gardens, NR17 2NE. Contact numbers: 07496 190435 and 07931 783202
Stacey Boyle and David & Hilary Reger are leading a group meeting Wednesdays at 68 Besthorpe Road, NR17 2NQ (not there all weeks). Contact numbers: 01953 799948 or 07985 605609
