These are exciting and important times! For you as a minister, as you look for God’s purpose and place for you. And for us as a fellowship, as we seek the right person to lead our church forwards.

In the early 1950s both St. Andrew's Parish Church, Gorleston, and Gorleston Baptist Church set their sights on working in the Cliff Park area, with St. Andrew's experimenting with a Sunday School in the South Gorleston area. They later established a permanent presence in the area with a curate's house on the Cliff Park estate.
In January 1997, the Reverend Paddy McGlinchey (St. Andrew's Assistant Minister) heard Gorleston Baptist Church was planning to hold a service at Cliff Park Middle School, and spoke with the Baptist Minister, the Reverend Richard Hughes, to see whether they could work together in this venture. From this meeting, the thought that the two churches could plant a new church was born. The project had the blessing of both churches and CPCC began life on December 12th 1999.
