A huge thank you to all who came to the Giraffe Drive on 23 March.

As we rolled, coloured in, and even drew dozens of giraffes (or not for some less lucky participants) we came together in good spirits and raised a further £125 for our ongoing Standing Tall fundraising efforts in aid of Break.


Keep an eye out for Sasha Windows and the 90+ other giraffes around Cambridge until 2 June. Maps are available with a suggested donation of £1 and you can download the app to help locate and share your giraffe selfies with others.


Art can play a role in expressing and exploring core Methodist values, as well as fostering spiritual reflection and connection. From hymns to visual art – such as a sculpture – the Methodist tradition has a rich history of incorporating artistic expression into worship and outreach. By embracing creativity and collaboration, we can continue to make a meaningful contribution to the wider Church and the world around us.

This towering sculpture trail will be bringing together communities from all corners of the city, encouraging them to look up at the spectacular art on offer – all while supporting Break, a charity working across East Anglia to pave the way for a brighter future for children and young people who have experienced the care system.

Being part of an art trail around Cambridge can provide a wonderful opportunity to engage with the wider community and showcase the church’s creative side. We are blessed with a rich and diverse pool of talent in this circuit and we are in the unique position to have such a strong Junior Church too. Art is a universal language that brings people together and inspires them in new ways and we are excited about the project ahead of us.

The giraffe has been designed by members of both CSMC and Histon Methodist Church incorporating the various messages, bible studies, and the Methodist heritage that reflects the congregations and our faith. From pictures of bread and wine to Jesus as the good shepherd, the array of window panes capture the essence of our community and our commitment to inclusion. Not forgetting a little stained glass depiction of John Wesley!

Sasha Windows – the best pun name we could muster – is on display alongside over 90 other giraffe statues and runs until 2 June 2024 throughout Cambridge.
