Fenstanton U R C


We usually meet together at 9.30am every Sunday with Holy Communion being celebrated on the second Sunday in the month. 

In addition, on various occasions throughout the year we also hold special services to which folk from around the village are specifically invited. 

A Brief History. 

It's life as a Congregational Church continued until 1972 when, with other Congregational Churches in England and Wales, it joined the Presbyterian Church of England to form the United Reformed Church. 

In 1983 the Church started a new chapter in its life when it joined with the Free Church in St. Ives and the then Houghton Chapel Retreat to form the St. Ives Group of Churches. In 1998 it was discovered that the Church floor, and in particular the joists under the floor, had wet rot. 

The cost of repairing and maintaining both the Church building and the former manse, next door, was now beyond our means. This was a devastating blow. 

In the weeks and months that followed much time was spent in thinking, discussion and prayer as we tried to discover what our vision for the Church was and how God was leading us. 

Throughout this time we held onto our convictions that we would deal with the problems and continue our witness in the village. 


The sale of the former manse helped towards the cost of an exciting redevelopment project which has resulted in a welcoming and versatile building, which is not only used for Christian worship, but also provides space and facilities for various community groups. 


Coffee and Chat

Drop in to 'Coffee and Chat' on alternate Tuesday mornings from 10.00am.
Anyone is welcome to drop in for a cuppa and a friendly chat.
This gives people a chance to get together, whatever their age; to meet new people, and to make new friends.
