Situated right in the heart of Histon, we are a lively growing church serving both north Cambridge and the surrounding area, as well as the village itself. You can see a map here - there are ample parking facilities nearby.
We are part of the Cambridge Methodist Circuit and have good ecumenical relationships with local churches of other denominations. We are also very actively involved with a wide variety of community activities.
As you will see from this website we have several regular activities, and often host special events. There’s always something happening and we assure you of a warm welcome. For more information why not join us for worship on Sundays at 10.30am or pop in to our Coffee Shop on Wednesdays or on Saturday mornings, when there is always someone available to help you.
Our church building has re-opened after many months of work and this morning we were delighted to be able to worship together in the newly refurbished building for the first time. The building looks fantastic, and we are particularly pleased with our new cross, created for us by local artist Jayne Ruffell-Ward.
We look forward to many more years meeting together in this building, and hope it will be well used by the church and the wider local community.
The next phase of the redevelopment, including a new porch, is now in progress.
For our first service in our newly refurbished building, we welcomed Rev Bruce Waldron from Sawston Free Church to preach – and sing – to us. You can listen to his sermon and the song he performed using the player below, or click here to download the MP3 to listen later.

The Roost is an event I lead at the Cottenham Community Centre Coffee Shop on the third Sunday of every month, usually from 3-4:30pm. It is a mixture of arts, crafts, games, music, videos, poetry, and more, plus coffee, cake and conversation about life and faith.
During our January session, for example, we considered the melancholy or depression that people often feel during the darker, colder winter months. We listened to some of the saddest songs of all time, read and wrote poetry, looked at some Psalms of Lament, and created crafts to remind us that we are offered shelter beneath God’s wings. We also made and camped in an enormous Den which represented the refuge that can be found in family and community at their best, and that God also offers to all who seek it. (more…)
This morning, Rev’d Dr Brian Beck invited us to reflect on the life and legacy one of our church’s founding fathers, Richard Matthews, and what it might mean for us as we continue to worship in the building named for him, the Matthews Memorial Chapel. You can listen to his message using the player below, or click here to download the MP3.
Rev’d Jean Simmonds’ sermon for the 3rd September is now available to listen below. Please note, the sermon was originally preached in two halves; these have been joined together for the recording. Also, unfortunately a short section at the start is missing from the recording.
