St Andrew's Histon Under Fives | Little Stars

Friendship, Faith and Fun

Our vision for young families with under 5’s

We aim to be a place of welcome, hospitality and sanctuary; to provide a little piece of shelter from the storms of everyday life; to be a listening ear, and a chance to explore the hope, love, peace and transformation that the Christian faith brings.

Shine is on Fridays from 11am-12.15pm where we have activities appropriate across the ages, including soft play, outdoor activity trail, imaginative play, sensory play, a craft, a bible or other story and singing time, for all under fives and their families.

Little Stars  is on Tuesdays from 10.30-11.45am and is for those with babies. We chat, sing, drink, eat and have a short thought for the day from one of the team that shares something about God, Jesus or the Bible

We'll be singing, sharing and chatting to each other about day to day life and about the bigger things when you want to.Little Stars is open to everyone with babies and is free, but we do welcome donations.
