Welcome to our website!

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.
