New to Church?
Welcome! Whether you've just moved to the area, or have lived here all your life, we hope our website helps you to find out everything you want to know about our Church.
Key information about the church...
Where & when does the church meet?
Our Church meets every Sunday at 10:30am for our Sunday Service. Aim to arrive 15 minutes early to ensure you get a parking spot and seat in time for the service to start.
What should I expect when I visit the church?
Our church is on Heaton Road, Heaton NE6 5HN. You can see a map on our contact us page.
You will receive a very warm welcome particularly from our Welcome Team who will be able to answer any questions you may have. Once the service starts feel free to join in or simply observe: there is usually sung worship, a sermon, some prayer and perhaps an opportunity to say 'hi' to the people next to you!
Tea, coffee and biscuits are served after the service where there is plenty of time to meet new people and ask more questions.
What happens to the kids at church?
Children and young people are more than welcome at HBC! Usually we start all together and then they are invited to their own groups at around 11 o'clock, but sometimes we have a shortened all-age service where everyone stays in together.
The groups we run are:
Creche (6 months to 3 years). Children under 6 months are welcome but must be accompanied by their parent/carer at all times.
Is there a dress code?
Allstars (4–7 years)
Livewires (8-10 years)
Youth (11-17 years)
Our service leader will announce when the children need to go to their programme. You will need to go with your children and sign them in and then collect them at the end. More information about these groups can be found in our Children and Youth ministry pages.
At the end of the service, there will an be opportunity to receive more personal prayer; all you need to do is make yourself known to the prayer team who gather to the left of the platform and they will pray alongside you.
No! Please just be yourself and come dressed in your 'normal' clothes.
