Any other comments:
I understand that, as a disciple, I am seeking to increasingly worship God, obey Jesus, and be transformed by the Holy Spirit in all of life, helping others to do the same.
I actively contribute to the family life of City Church by regularly participating in our times of corporate prayer, in being financially generous and by serving others.
I have read the Vision and Values
of City Church Cambridge and will lead in full accord with them.
I can attend City Group Leaders' Training at Brickfields on Thursday 13th September at 7.30pm.
Please give the name of a leader who is willing to act as your reference:
This could be an elder, Director, department head (Youth, Students etc) or previous leader of a City Group, Growth Group or Cluster.
