... providing a context for healthy, enjoyable social interaction for youth of the church and their friends, and a place where the truth of the Bible is communicated in a simple and clear way. It is designed to be a first point of entry for newcomers to the church/faith, as well as an end of the week, spiritually directed social opportunity for the youth in the church.

Infants

On Sunday mornings, a warm, safe environment is made available in our lower lounge area for babies, toddlers, and their parents. Alternatively, there is a cry room available upstairs (overlooking the auditorium).

Sunday School

Midway through the morning service (during the school term) children aged 3 to 13 are dismissed for Junior Church. If you prefer, your children are also welcome to stay in the main auditorium during this time.

Children & Youth

Chinese Evangelistic Bible Study

 

This is a great way for those who have English as a second language to gather around the Word of God and hear the Word in their own language.

Coordinator: Lilian Dalton, 535 8935.

 
 

Voice of the Martyrs' Writers Group

HBC’s VOM Writers’ Group meets the last Wednesday of the month (9:30 – 11:30 HBC Prayer Room) to pray for the persecuted church and write letters to Christian prisoners who are suffering persecution because of their love for Jesus. Letters can make a difference!

Mail sent to Christian prisoners, and to those who are being persecuted is important because it:

  • indicates to authorities that we are aware of that Christian’s situation

  • testifies of the love and unity found among followers of Jesus Christ throughout the world

  • is evidence to our persecuted family that they are not forgotten

  • can result in better treatment for a prisoner and even contribute to their release

 

Contact: Judy Painter (09) 534 4487

 

“Remember those who are in prison as if you were their fellow prisoners, and those who are mistreated as if you yourselves were suffering.”  (Hebrews 13:3)
