Cliff Park Community Church was “planted” in 1999 out of two local evangelical churches: Gorleston Baptist Church and St Andrew’s Anglican Church. The original 30 people felt that God was calling them to reach the people of Cliff Park with the Gospel of Jesus Christ. That calling is still in our DNA today.
Indeed we sum up our mission as being:
“To live and to give the good news”
Each week we meet for worship, to praise God and to restore him to his rightful place at the Centre of our lives. As we gather, we try to be open to what his Spirit wants to say and do amongst us. However, we feel strongly that church services are not an end in themselves. Their purpose is to strengthen our faith and to equip us to live and work amongst people who don’t yet know Jesus. That’s why everything that happens at Cliff Park Community Church will always be focused on building us up to be God’s ambassadors in a world that needs to know Christ as Lord and Saviour. Therefore we encourage children and adults alike to join smaller groups where they can learn about God and what it means to follow Jesus Christ.
On Sundays, pre-school children receive their first experience of church in our crèche. School-aged children have their own Kidz Church. Teenagers have Q3 and older children go to an evening Home Group. Adults receive bible-based teaching during the morning service and have the chance to ask for prayer ministry afterwards. During the week, evening and daytime, house groups meet for fellowship, bible-study, prayer… and sometimes even fun!
Whether you’re on holiday in the area, have lived here all your life, or just moved, we’d love you to join us at one of our Sunday morning services.
We meet in Cliff Park Junior School, Orde Avenue, Gorleston-on-Sea, Great Yarmouth, NR31 6SZ.
Our service starts at 10.30am and typically lasts about an hour and a half.
Our worship is quite relaxed and informal, and we tend to have mostly modern worship songs led by a music group, though we normally include at least one traditional hymn because we like those too. There are no hymn books – all worship songs, readings, and responses are displayed on an overhead projector in large type. We have amplification for the worship leader and people reading or preaching, and also an induction loop for the hard-of-hearing.
There are few conventions about sitting and standing etc. – normally the worship leader will indicate this, but you may be surprised to find half of us doing one thing and half doing the other at some points in the service, so it really doesn’t matter as long as you join in with as much as you feel able to. There are toilets in the foyer behind the entrance.
