WELCOME TO CFS

Our anthem does a pretty good job of explaining who we are, with lyrics including…

You can be young, old, middle-aged, married, single, divorced, engaged, healthy, sick, rich or poor, vegan, coeliac or a carnivore. Gay, queer, bi or pan, genderfluid, non-binary or trans, people of all skin colours and race, autistic or deaf you will be embraced.

We’re all made in God’s image, our diversity helps us to envisage, all that God is and created us to be, as we live our lives here in Southend-on-Sea.

FIND YOUR PLACE

Our Prayer for Lockdown.

This week we started our 'Jesus is the Question' series looking at questions Jesus asked during his life! We wrote this prayer in response to this new series and think it's helpful during this weird, difficult time.
