An essential point which has to be made, is that H.C.C.U. is NOT a church. We are simply a group of students who come together with the main aim of making Jesus Christ known to others in Homerton. The leadership of H.C.C.U. is done entirely by students and so we do not claim to possess the authority or function of a church. We therefore strongly encourage everyone to attend a local church. Below is a list of a few popular churches in Cambridge...
Eden Baptist Church
A large, evangelical Baptist church which has always been popular with students. The student team provide a good support network for students, including discussion groups and one-to-one Bible Studies. Cheap food is available in the evenings! Service times: 10:30, 6:00pm. The Church is at the bottom end of the Grafton Centre.
