"The Lord will take delight in her"


Welcome to Hephzibah, Cambridge!

We are a non-denominational group of Christians who have a heart for God’s ongoing work in Israel and amongst Jewish people, everywhere.


We seek to grow in our knowledge of Jesus in all His fullness,and in our understanding of God’s eternal purposes for Israel and the Jewish people, through biblical teaching, fellowship and prayer.


What does Hephzibah mean?

Hephzibah (literal English “my delight is in her”) figures briefly in the Bible’s Second books of Kings (2 Kings 21:1). More importantly Hephzibah is a symbolic name for Zion once it has been restored to the favour of God (Isaiah 62:4). It reminds us that God has made certain promises to Israel, and ultimately to give Israel a new name. In our Cambridge group, we seek to understand these truths and to work out what they mean for life in the twenty first century – as well as what they mean for the future of this God-rejecting world.



Hephzibah meets virtually at present and has found this draws attendees from across the country, although we remain very much a Cambridge-based fellowship. Our Zoom-based meetings generally start at 7.20PM and finish at 9.00PM. Occasional face to face meetings are also in our programme, so please check the diary section.
