Although it tends to be associated with telling the future, prophecy in the New Testament is more to do with gifts of 'revelation' and principally the revelation of God's heart.
The Spiritual gift of prophecy is encouraged in CBCF alongside the biblical principles of weighing, testing and accountability. This allows people to be unhindered in bringing what they feel the Lord is saying and prophecies to be received safely and handled with wisdom.
Some people are particularly gifted in hearing God in this way and they lead regular meetings for those who want to hear what God is saying to the church and those who wish developing their own gifting.
Praise and Worship
Praise and worship is a very important part of our lives and it is therefore an important part of CBCF. We believe that God asks us to praise him, but find that it's something we want to do more and more as we get to know him. We do this in various ways, including singing, praying and reading the bible.
We have a number of worship leaders, singers and musicians who get together to rehearse each month on a Sunday evening.
