"The Lord will take delight in her"


Welcome to Hephzibah, Cambridge!

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


In common with most believers, we hope and pray that Jewish people – and all people – will have the joy of encountering Yeshua ha Massiasch as Lord and as Saviour, and to experience the life changing wonder of the gospel of grace.


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.

The last of the spring feasts takes place seven Sabbaths plus one day (50 days) after the Day of First Fruits – thus, because the Sabbath is on Saturday, this Feast is always on a Sunday. On the Day of First Fruits the people of Israel gave thanks for the first fruits...

The Biblical Feasts 2

The second Biblical Feast mentioned in Leviticus 23 is Passover, which is linked to the Feast of Unleavened Bread and an often overlooked Feast, the Day of First Fruits, not to be confused with the Feast of First Fruits which occurs 50 days later and which will be...

The Biblical Feasts 1

I was reminded in a sermon on the first Sunday after Christmas that the only scriptures available in the times of Jesus were what we call the Old Testament. This information can come as a shock to some Christians, but when we think about it, it is obvious. Indeed none...

The Sign of Jonah

Taking it seriously …….. Some of the scribes and Pharisees answered Him saying, “Teacher, we want to see a sign from You.” And He said to them, “An evil and adulterous generation seeks a sign, but a sign will not be given to it except the sign of the prophet Jonah....
