Light Party

An alternative to halloween! It's a safe fun time for children to come and play games, make things with a Christian theme.

What's On

From Alpha and Cafe Church to Party in the Park and the Light Party, there are many things Churches Together do in Royston.

Love Royston

Royston is a great community and there are many reasons to love our town; scroll down to see a few.

Support for Ukraine

We have a support group aimed at welcoming guests in our area who have fled the conflict in Ukraine. The group has two aims.

  • To help match up those who are fleeing with suitable hosts, so they can come here under the Government's Homes for Ukraine Scheme.
  • To provide support for those who are here, both Ukrainian guests and local hosts.

To get in touch with the group, please email James Dalgleish.

We believe in One God:
Father, Son and Holy Spirit

We are a group of local churches in and around Royston (North Hertfordshire), working together with a commitment to: be united in Christ; deepen our communication with God and with our brothers and sisters in Christ; fulfil our God-given mission to proclaim the gospel by witness and service in the world

The objectives of Churches Together are to promote activity between all churches in our area and to promote and publicise Christian activities on a district basis.

Fun for all
Light Party

The Light Party is organised jointly by Churches together in Royston and District and Make Lunch as an alternative to dressing up and doing scary stuff associated with Halloween! It's a safe fun time for children to come and play games, make things etc., all with a Christian theme. Over the years the attendence has been awesome with regularly more than 100 children attending.

The 2023 Light Party is at the Coombes Community Centre, on Tuesday 31st October starting at 5.30pm.

If you like kids work and can spare some time to help with organisation and/or might be available to help out on the day, please contact the Light Party; volunteers are always welcome to help make this happen.
