These are our leaders and Core Team Members.

Phil Greenow
(Elder - Pastor)
  Peter Smallridge

Phil is the Senior Elder/Pastor at 3C Community Church. He has a passion to see the whole church working together as the body of Christ, in the power of the Holy Spirit, so that we each fulfil our individual God given calling and potential.

He previously worked as a primary school teacher for 8 years and during that time has served on two church leadership teams.

Phil is married to Becky and they have two daughters, Alice & Martha. He enjoys watching rugby at Kingsholm, making things in his workshop and reading books…lots of books!


As an Elder and the Church Treasurer, Peter manages the finances at 3C Community Church. Along with preaching regularly, he still manages to find time to assist with various ministries including Open The Book, which he very much enjoys.

Peter is married to Claire and they live in Cam. They have two grown up sons, Robert and Jono.

As a Marketing Manager for a large multi-national, his job takes him to many far flung exotic destinations. When he's at home on a clear night, Peter will be found gazing at the stars and the vast expanses of space through his telescope.

(Buildings & Fabric)
(Events Coordinator)

We are blessed to have a building and other resources at our disposal whenever we gather and serve our community. Whoever takes on this role isn’t expected to do the work but to make sure that, through a combination of professional trades and volunteer teams, the fabric of our church building is taken care of and kept in good order.


There are lots of significant celebrations and special moments at 3C that call for coordinated action across various church ministries and teams. We are looking for a person who can coordinate across our teams and bring all these strands together. This would be ‘project manager’ type role focused on delivering special events throughout the year.

(Pastoral Care)
(Warm Space Coordinator)

Our team of Pastoral Care Coordinators continue to serve the church family by coordinating our provision of care & support for all our members. We want a designated person who connects this 'practical meeting of needs' to the Core Leadership Team.


The Warm space initiative is a new addition to our ministry at 3C. It’s a developing response to the cost-of-living crisis and our community needs. We want to appoint someone to coordinate our efforts, liaise with our partners and help shape the ministry.

Planning your Visit

New to Church?...

A brief introduction to 3C Community Church.

Welcome Card Front

Sunday Worship...

This is an overview of a typical Sunday morning service so that you'll know, beforehand, what to expect when you visit.

Where and When

We meet in the Chapel (details here) for our Sunday Service starting at 10:30am. For your first visit, we recommend arriving 10-15 minutes early to ensure you get a parking space and find somewhere to sit before the service begins. When you arrive, you'll be greeted by someone on our Welcome Team.


There is wheelchair access via a paved ramp, and T-loop packs for anyone who needs them. Please let one of the Welcome Team know on your arrival and they will help you to get set up. There is an accessible toilet in the community hall.

Our Service

The service begins at 10:30am with a warm welcome from one of our members. This is usually followed by a time of sung worship, led by our band. We typically have 3 or 4 songs lasting approximately 20 minutes. Sometimes a person might pray out loud or read a small passage from the bible. Sometimes people share things that they believe God is saying to the whole church family. This might seem strange the first time you hear it but it’s all part of our connecting with God. We then share news and notices, usually about what’s going on in the life of the church. One of our leaders will then give a sermon that is bible based and that we can apply to our everyday life. We then finish with a final worship song. Sometimes there is an opportunity to receive prayer at the end of the service.

What about my kids?

We have a great programme lined up for kids of all ages:

  • Créche (0 months to 4 years). Parents/carers of younger children are welcome to use our créche facilities but they must remain with their child at all times.
  • Trailblazers (4-11 years)
  • Young people (11+ years) Stay in the service

It's best to register your children for their groups before the service begins - just speak to a member of our welcome team. Children stay with their parent or grown-up at the start of the service for the welcome, songs and notices. We really value worshipping God all together as a family. At the appropriate time someone will announce that our younger members will now go to their various groups. Whilst you are dropping your kids off at their groups, we may pause to take time to chat to someone sitting near or next to us, giving folk a chance to come back before the sermon begins.

The kids group activities vary depending on the age but usually there is a friendly welcome, bible stories, testimonies, praying, music, craft, drama, fun games and free play. Your children will be brought back to the chapel at the end of their session.


Getting Connected...

Small Groups

While Sundays are a great way to meet new people, it is often in smaller gatherings that you can really get to know someone. Being part of one of our small groups allows you to make new friends, share together and support each other. We have a variety of groups that meet throughout the week, some mornings and some evenings. Check out Small Groups and see if there’s one that you could join. We can put you in touch with a small group leader who will be more than happy to invite you along to their group.

Serving and Volunteering

If you want to get involved in the life of the church and help us make sure things run smoothly, you'll need to talk to one of the leaders about joining a team. 

Other Ministries

We also run the following ministries:

  • Men's Ministries
  • Women's Ministries
  • Nursing Home Services
  • Children's clubs
  • Crafting club
  • Warm Space
  • Foodbank

A Note from Phil, our Pastor...

Phil, Becks, Alice & Martha

Becks, Alice and I joined 3C in 2018. Since then Martha has been born, there's been a global pandemic and we've finally moved into the neighbourhood. I work full time for the church whilst Becks works as a music teacher at a secondary school in Gloucester during the week. We know that God led us to 3C and this ministry. He's been shaping us as individuals, a couple and a family to serve Him here in Cam.

Becks uses her musical gifts to serve God and the congregation as part of the music ministry team. She is also heading up the Sunday morning kids ministry - 'Trailblazers'. I lead the church eldership team along with some of our ministry teams. Though I've recently enjoyed a major church building maintenance project, my deepest joy is found in sharing the Word of Life with God's people.

We hope that whoever you are, you will feel at home at our church.

Every Blessing,
