On Sunday mornings we meet in our local High School. There is both tiered and floor spaced seating allowing accessible seating and ease of access and our morning services include:
- an expositional relevant Biblical message (usually part of a series)
- interviews and stories that showcase God’s love and power
- prayer for current events & personal needs
- inspirational worship (City Alight, Bethel, Gettys, Hillsong, Soul Survivor)
- opportunities for prayer ministry
- socialising in the Coffee Stop after the service
Children and teenagers are equipped through Sparks (our pre-school crèche), Ignite (Key Stage 1 children) , Flame s (Key Stage 2 children) and Empower (High School age). After the service, we invite you to stay for refreshments and to socialise in The Coffee Stop.
We meet at our smaller building on Hunter Street, in the heart of Carnforth, off Market Street, near the railway station. This welcoming space provides us with a more intimate environment for extended times of prayer and worship and an opportunity to explore issues or engage with ministries, both local and global. We often have guest speakers or developing communicators, providing a platform for an encounter with God and to be equipped for serving.
We really believe that circles are better for rows. The best way to grow in spiritual and relational maturity is to have circles (weekly small groups) that complement the rows (Sunday services). Our small groups, or Connect Groups, provide an opportunity to discuss and explore issues of faith and their relevant application in day to day life.
The Connect Groups at CFM enable us to:
- connect with God
- connect with each other
- connect the Bible to our daily lives
- connect with our local communities
We have several midweek Connect Groups in communities around our region. These house-based groups provide a comfortable environment to discuss the Sunday morning message, pray together and form friendships. They provide a brilliant opportunity to find meaningful and practical support and encouragement to live out our identity in Christ. Connect Groups exist so that no one is left alone. For a sample of discussion notes, please go to our Connect Notes section.
We run through the year courses like Alpha, Freedom in Christ, Grace Course, Parenting Courses, The Marriage Course, Divorce Care & Grief Share.
