WEEKDAY GROUPS

Exploring faith

If you’re new to the Christian faith, or coming back, then our Alpha courses offer you the opportunity to think through and discuss key questions in an informal and relaxed atmosphere – contact us for details for the next course.

For Adults

Clusters and Small Groups – at the heart of HT’s life are our groups meeting in people’s homes throughout the week. They offer opportunities to deepen faith, build close friendships and receive practical support. They are also vital to sharing God’s love with others. Each small group of 8-12 people belongs to a Cluster of 2 or 3 groups – these meet at least once a month and help us to share, serve and care as well as giving opportunities for worship, learning and activities – more information here

Throughout the year we also run a range of special events and activities designed especially for men or for women….
