Some key information about the church...
Our Sunday service is normally at 10.30am but very occasionally it is at other times therefore please check the "Church Calendar" on this website (under Resources).
The number of people that can attend HBC services is currently fewer than normal due to the Covid-19 restrictions and it is essential to book a seat before coming to church, for details please click here.
If it's your first visit then it's probably best to turn up 10 minutes early. If you are driving then you'll be pleased to hear that there is plenty of free parking. For directions to reach us please see the Contact Us
page. You'll be greeted on the door by our welcoming team who will give you some information about the church and notices of forthcoming events.
We start our service at 10.30am with a time of worship and child-friendly activities (usually a talk, an activity or a drama). Then notices keeping us informed of what is happening before we take up our offering. If you do not wish to put anything in the collection bag just let it pass you by. Our music consists of a mixture of modern songs (with guitars, keyboards and drums) and hymns. Everyone participates in the worship but at around 11am the children and youth go to their own groups with a crèche for the little ones. We then have further songs, prayers, bible reading and a talk that is relevant and meaningful to our modern lives.
Tea, coffee and biscuits are served after the service where there is plenty of time to meet new people and ask more questions.
We have a fantastic programme for the children in Creche and Motivators and for our youth in Explorers. Children stay with their parents at the start of the service as we worship together. Someone will announce when the children and youth need to go to their programme.
For more information about what happens in the children's work please visit the relevant age groups for you under church life.
