For many years now, the minister of Sawston Free Church has also been the minister of Little Abington URC. Last year the Synod asked our minister to also take care of Castle Camps and so our church family increased to three.
Each Sunday morning somewhere around 10-12 people gather in the very warm and friendly atmosphere of Little Abington URC at 10.15am for worship. On the third Sunday of each month the service moves to 2.30pm, so that the minister can be present on a regular monthly basis and take a Communion service. The congregation is warm and friendly and visitors are very welcome. Service is always followed by a long cup of tea or coffee, wonderful biscuits and great conversation.
Castle Camps is about eleven miles east of Sawston. The wonderful old non-conformist church is in the heart of village life. The congregation that meets each Sunday morning at 10.30 is not very big but they are deeply engaged in the community, running Songs of Praise every couple of months in the evening and sharing regularly with the Anglican congregations at Shudy Camps and Castle Camps. They interact with the school and are always looking at ways of “getting out there.”
