Building for the future
Although non-conformists had been meeting in Comberton since at least the 1850s, the Union Chapel,(which later was to become CBC) was built in 1868. Since then we have played our part over the intervening years, and grown to be a vibrant and family-oriented church keen to engage and support our village community
CBC hosts many events during the year on a regular or one-off basis.
Our large Trinity room in the church Centre is used weekly by our parents-and-babies group ("Bumps and Babes") with a monthly NHS clinic held in an adjoining room, and also for occasional community lunches. We host a community sewing group and a German language group regularly in the Centre.
As can be seen from the picture, the Trinity room becomes crowded quite easily and so our Phase 1a build would increase the floor area by around 80%, allowing our Bumps and Babes group to grow, as well as facilitating larger events in greater comfort and with improved access for people with limited mobility.
We like to feed our guests well, and although our kitchen in the church centre squeezes a lot in, it isn't very suitable for larger gatherings. We would like to enhance our catering facilities by adding a more spacious kitchen in the phase 2 build, which would facilitate larger events and reduce the burden on our volunteer caterers!
