We firmly believe that one of the best ways of showing God's love for us, is to reflect that love openly with those around us. We endeavour to do this through our ministries both in and around our immediate community of the Forest of Dean.
Sometimes a smile, a "Hello" or a chance for someone to talk with, is all that people require. Others need more. We don't judge. We don't discriminate - we simply try to act as Jesus would.
Below, we invite you to browse through just some of the many Ministries at FCC. There may be something that
inspires you, there may be something that you think could help you, whatever you're looking for we hope you'll join us.
We're all about discipleship and seeing lives changed by the radical gospel of Jesus. Whether you are just starting out on your journey to get to know Jesus or you have been a Christian for years, we have a course for you to help you mature in your faith.

We meet on Wednesday evenings in the main Church building. The evening starts with refreshments and the meeting starts with the first worship song at 1915 hrs. Feel free to come and join us for tea/coffee or soft drinks if you feel this programme may help you with your recovery support needs.

At FCC we believe reaching and nurturing children is just as important as the Adult life of the Church so that means we have lots going on for children. To find out more click the link below.

Community is at the very heart of what we do at FCC. Whether it's working in the local schools, running courses, praying in the local hospitals or being there in times of need, we are passionate about those God has placed around us.

Our vision is that we might encourage one another, as women, in our walk with Jesus by living bold lives in the truth that we see revealed in scripture.

We had a lovely time of fun and fellowship.
Often Christians are seen as weak and that the Church is out of touch with the real world, but we don't believe that. We enable the Men of FCC to live radically transformed and adventurous lives for Jesus where compromise on His Gospel is not an option.

We take Jesus seriously. Really seriously. When He said to go into all the world and proclaim the good news we believe Him and that's why Mission, whether locally or abroad, is pivotal to the work of FCC.
