All Saints' Church
All Saints’ is here for everyone who lives in Harston, in line with the Church of England’s traditional role in local communities. The church is normally open all day from 9.30am to 6.00pm.
Since the mid 1400s a long line of villagers has been worshipping in the building you see today, and since before Norman times in previous buildings on this site. Across the centuries All Saints’ has seen countless weddings, baptisms and funerals in addition to the daily and weekly rounds of services and we welcome you, whether to mark a special occasion or in our regular worship. We also hope you will feel able to join us for our festivals such as Christmas and Easter – no previous experience is needed!. Occasionally the music group adds to worship, singing an anthem or psalm.
We also invite you to share in supporting the upkeep of this, the oldest building in the village, to ensure it stands for future generations as a place of celebration and worship and as an important architectural building. One way of doing this is to join the Friends of All Saints'.
We welcome you, whether you are a regular church goer, visiting the area, exploring faith, planning a wedding, or have no faith but are interested in our village’s history. Please stay behind after the service and meet us over a cup of coffee if you’d like to; we’d love to meet you.

FRIENDS OF ALL SAINTS'
All Saints’ is the oldest building in Harston. It is an important part of our heritage, and a place for our wider community, as it has been for all those who lived here before us.
The Friends of All Saints’ help to maintain and enhance the church building so that it is here for everyone when they need it, now and for future generations. The Friends also help inform visitors and those who live here more about the church and its place in the history of our village.
We want to be able to make everyone feel welcome at All Saints' and have made improvements to the building to help make this possible, including providing an accessible lavatory, space for changing nappies, and moveable seating to enable you to sit wherever you like.
HIRING OUR CHURCH
All Saints’ is a perfect space for events, concerts, and meetings.
In 2021 we replaced our pews with chairs and so you can set up the space how you need it. Our servery and accessible lavatory are available for your use.
Our music group meets on Sunday evenings to learn anthems and other music from a traditional church choir repertoire which we sing on occasional Sundays and at special occasions.
There is no audition to join us and you do not need to be a skilled sight reader. If you enjoy singing (or think you will), come along and give it a go!

There has been a church in Harston since Norman times, and probably earlier. The first mention is in 1069 when the Lord of the Manor and Sheriff of Cambridgeshire gave the Rectory to the Prior of Burwell.
