orchard. The house is located on Grange Road in Cambridge.

Bringing People Together
Lyn’s House is a transformational community of people in Cambridge. It provides a space for life-enhancing friendship amongst people with, and people without, learning disabilities. We are a Christian charity that seeks to create a community in which all are valued – not for what they achieve, but for who they are.
The Lyn’s House community meets regularly over meals, outings and other events and also online, developing lasting friendships and providing a contrasting experience to the intense academic and work settings of Cambridge.
What We Do
The three resident members of Lyn’s House commit themselves to living as a Christian community for a minimum of one year, and to taking a leading role in the life and organising of Lyn’s House. Residents live in “The Lodge”, a shared home, and are typically either studying or working in Cambridge.
Each week, we host a meal at the Lodge for residents, volunteers and our friends with learning disabilities. We pray, chat, cook together, play games, and celebrate birthdays. During the pandemic we have done whatever we can do face-to-face, and also gathered online. We have a lot of fun!
Once a month, we hold tea parties for the wider community of Lyn’s House: friends, supporters, residents, trustees, volunteers all come together for a relaxed cup of tea, delicious cakes, craft activities, jenga, puzzles, singing, and for a simple prayer. We also hold occasional movie nights and other special events.
We tell the story of what we’re learning together, and the difference it makes. We are happy to accept invitations from local churches and faith or community groups and organisations to come and speak about Lyn’s House. To find out more, please contact us.
