Sunday meetings

Church interior during a celebration meal

Our services are open to all and you can come just as you are. Of course coming once doesn't mean you have to come every week! There are no complicated books to follow and you will not have to take part in anything you are uncomfortable with.

We understand that some people just want to slip in and out unnoticed, while others may like to stay for coffee afterwards.

We meet at 10:00am every Sunday morning. About 80 people of all ages meet in our building on Burford Street for a service lasting about 90 minutes. We also have a crèche and young people's groups.

On the 1st Sunday of the month the morning service is followed by lunch, to which everyone is welcome to stay.

Sunday Evenings

We have a variety of Sunday evening meetings, according to the pattern below:

1st Sunday of the month - No evening meeting, as we are still recovering from our lunch together!

2nd Sunday of the month - 7.00pm Communion, typically attended by between 10 and 15 people, allowing a quieter and more reflective style. 

3rd Sunday of the month - 7.00pm A chance to think about our World Mission partners or maybe have a visit from one of them, as detailed in the current This week at HBC.

4th Sunday of the month - 7.00pm A chance to pray for an hour. 

5th Sunday of the month - No regular evening meeting.  

Prayer ministry is available after every meeting. 

As part of our worship an offering of money is collected in our Sunday morning meeting.  The money is used to support our ministry locally and mission overseas.  Please do not be embarrassed to simply pass the bag on to the next person.   

Communion

communion

Communion (the Lord's Supper or Eucharist), is the name given to the sharing of bread and wine in obedience to Jesus' command to remember Him in this way.  All those who love the Lord Jesus and are seeking to follow Him are invited to join in.
