Rock has a strong history of being involved in new church planting since it was planted as a new church by Eden Baptist Church (in Cambridge) over 25 years ago.
Only a couple of miles away from where we meet as a church, a new community is beginning to grow. New housing developments to the west, south and east of Trumpington will bring approximately 9,000 new people to the area over the next few years.
As singles, couples and families of all ages and nationalities move into the new developments we are excited by the opportunity to serve these new communities and to reach out to them with the good news of Jesus Christ.
Being located in the south of the city, Rock has a number of members who live in or around Trumpington and as we have watched the plans for new housing in the area develop and become reality, the possibility of planting a new church in the area has been on our hearts for some time. After much prayer, discussion with other churches locally, planning, and seeking to get involved in the community over the last year in particular, we believe that it’s right to begin a new church in Trumpington at this time. Christ Church, Trumpington began meeting on Sunday mornings at Fawcett Primary School from the beginning of September. As we start, Christ Church Trumpington will remain a congregation of Rock Baptist Church but with a local focus and leadership.
Are you making a new beginning in Trumpington? We’d love to hear from you as we consider our own!
