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.

Revd Simon Oliver (Minister)

Sermon Recording: 1st January 2017 – Rev’d Simon Oliver

This morning’s sermon, reflecting on Jesus as a child refugee in Egypt, is now available to listen to. Use the player below, or click here to download the MP3 to listen again later.

Lou Davis’ picture “The Exiles” is available to see and buy on Etsy. The song used for the meditation after the sermon was “Long Way Around The Sea” by Low, and can be found on Spotify or iTunes.

Sermon – Advent Sunday 2016 – Rev’d Simon Oliver

As a bit of a change this week, we have a video recording of the sermon rather than just the audio. Please use the video player below, or click here to open the video in a new tab. Unfortunately, the first minute or so of the sermon is missing, and we were lucky to have a large number of children in church this morning (who occasionally make their presence known during the sermon) but hopefully you can still hear the message.

And as a bonus (of which I am pretty sure Simon will approve): Sufjan Stevens’ version of O Come, O Come Emmanuel.

Sermon Recording: Remembrance Sunday (13 Nov 2016) – Rev Simon Oliver

The service also includes a statement from the Methodist Conference regarding the US elections, and prayer from the Chair of Methodist Conference, which you can also read by following this link.
