What to expect at our church
My Experience At Church
1. ARRIVAL & PARKING
When arriving at CFC, the first thing you will experience is our friendly parking team guiding you and showing you where to park. The team follows a carefully structured system to fill up each parking lot as to maximise the flow of traffic so that your access to a parking space is swift. We take great care of our parking areas as you will notice by the manicured gardens. We have a diligent security team looking out for the safety of your car. The parking areas are very well lit in the evenings in order to ensure your safety. We have a great shuttle service to transfer you from the parking areas that are further away and also to transport those who may require assistance.
2. WALKING IN THE DOOR
As you enter the building, the first thing you will notice is our awesome CFC Mall where you can expect to be greeted by one or two friendly faces. This area is for the benefit of meeting up with your friends and family for a coffee or a quick bite at one of the restaurants or food outlets. This is where you can also find our Welcome Centre should you like to meet someone from the church or have any questions. Come and have a free coffee while making a new friend at church. Remember, we love meeting new people and there is no reason why anyone should have to be alone… especially not at church.
We always ensure that our public toilet facilities are beautiful, clean and well maintained. We understand that this is of utmost importance to anyone leaving the comfort of their own home.
3. WE LOVE TO CATER FOR CHILDREN & FAMILIES
We love families, so at Children’s World, our promise to you is a clean and safe environment where your children can experience the love of Jesus in services they can enjoy. Our services include care and ministry for ages 3 months – 3 years as well as Children’s services for pre and primary school with age-appropriate ministry for all the various age groups. We would love to have your child join us.
Our Mother’s Rooms are specially
designed for mothers with infants. Here you can enjoy a private environment to feed, change and care for your baby, while still feeling like you are part of our services. Should your children be under the age of 10 and you wish to enjoy the services together as a family, our Family Room will cater to all your requirements. This will offer you the time that your family needs to make the transition to the main auditorium and children’s ministry facilities.
4. YOUTH & STUDENTS
At CFC we believe in investing spiritually in our youth. We do this through various programs which include a Youth Service every Sunday morning at 08:30 am, where young people can have a worship experience with our youth band as well as enjoy relevant messages. If you are young enough or have kids who would love to join the youth service, it takes place in the Theatre opposite the I AM WORTHY Boutique. Have a blast!
5. ENTERING THE AUDITORIUM
We have a state of the art auditorium in which we strive to offer you the best church experience we possibly can. As you enter the auditorium you will most likely be greeted once again by another friendly person. You may possibly be shown where to find a vacant seat to prevent you having to walk around searching for enough seats for you and your family. We do our best to maintain our facilities so that you can enjoy a clean and comfortable environment, therefore we request that no food or beverage other than water is taken into the auditorium.
6. THE CHURCH SERVICE
You will find a very friendly and relaxed atmosphere with exciting, contemporary worship music and a dynamic and relevant message. If you are at church for the first time, we won’t embarrass you by asking you to stand up and we don’t expect you to give money. If you would like to be noticed as one of our VIP first-time visitors in order to receive some info material about the church, the opportunity will be given during the service. However, we totally understand that some people would prefer to “check out the church” and fly under the radar for a while… and that’s fine with us. Just relax, enjoy yourself and see if this is the right church for you. As we understand that most people’s weekends tend to be busy and filled with chores and family time, we ensure that the duration of the service is typically 75 minutes long. Our Sunday evening services are slightly longer as we have assigned more time for praise and worship as well as allowing the speaker “freedom to flow” without having to adhere to a strict time format.
Please note that you can watch or download the message you just heard as well as previous messages on our website, free of charge.
7. AFTER THE SERVICE
Please feel free to stay for a while, have a coffee or a meal in the CFC Mall. The welcome centre will be open and we will be there ready to offer you a free coffee and answer any of your questions. The bookshop will be open should you want to buy some music, literature or a gift for someone special. We trust that you will have enjoyed your experience at CFC, that you will have felt welcomed, relaxed and inspired.
