Royston Parish Church (Herts)

Hello and Welcome to Royston Parish Church in the heart of the town of Royston (Hertfordshire). Focused on God, we want to be a growing fellowship of believers, who are being encouraged and developed at all stages in our faith journey and who are reaching out to and serving the people of Royston.

 You are warmly invited to come along to our services.  Our main services are on Sundays at 9am and 10:30am.   We also host many other events such as our monthly Tea Time Praise service, Tots in Church, house-groups, socials – see our What's On/News and Notices pages for details.  We have recently been awarded Eco Church "Bronze" status.

In November 2023 we reopened our stunning church in the heart of Royston after nearly four years of building work following a serious fire in December 2018. We have taken the opportunity to refurbish the church so that it now provides a light, warm, flexible space with disabled access and facilities.   We are open on weekdays from 9-4pm and on Saturday and Sunday mornings for services and coffee, so do drop in to enjoy this peaceful, prayerful space.

Please have a look around this site to find out more or visit our website. We are also on Facebook or Twitter. If you have any queries about christening, weddings or the reading of Banns of Marriage, do get in touch with us on [email protected].
