Children & Youth

We're passionate about our children and teens at HTF. It's vital that the whole world hears the Good News about Jesus, but it's especially important that we share it with young people. Children and youth work is a particular focus for HTF and we have a range of groups for different ages that meet throughout the week.

All our leaders are carefully recruited and have a current DBS certificate. We adhere carefully to the Church of England Safer Recruitment and Safeguarding standards.


Sunday Creche

During the 10:45 service on Sundays, parents of young children can watch the service on a screen in the Beckingham Room. Due to covid restrictions we are unable to offer a supervised creche at this time.
Coffee & Kids

On a Wednesday imagemorning from 10-11.45 am we have Coffee and Kids, our very friendly outreach group for pre-school children and their parents/grandparents or carers. We're open to anyone in the local area, not just church families - everyone in fact who would like a relaxed hour or two, meeting new and old friends over coffee.

We provide a happy, playful atmosphere with play, craft, stories and songs where everyone can hear the Good News of Jesus. At the end of each term we celebrate with a Christmas party, Easter Egg Hunt and a Summer picnic. 

All children who leave us at the end of our Summer term receive a Scripture Union book, to encourage them with their move to school.

Primary Aged Children

Sunday Clubs

After worshipping with the main congregation for the first part of the service, our Primary School aged children leave for their own age-specific teaching. We read the Bible, play games, pray, sing and do crafts together. Anyone from 3 to year 6 is welcome.

imageHotShots is our after school group for Primary School age children (Years 1-6). We learn from the Bible, play games, make craft, sing, grab a snack and explore what faith means for kids. We have an enthusiastic team of helpers who love sharing God's love with our children and helping them grow.

We meet on Fridays from 3.30pm until 4.5pm in the Parish Centre during term time. Contact  for further information.


Ignite AM
Ignite AM is our group for those in years 7-11. We join in with the first half of the 10:30 service, then head out for our own Bible study of the same passage. Expect good fun, big questions and hot chocolate!
Ignite PM (age 11-18)
Our youth group meets again on a Sunday evening in the Parish Centre. Here, we have a bit more time and space so can dig a little further into the Bible, and can also run around a bit more, playing games like dodgeball! 

Ignite:PM runs on Sunday evenings from 5-6.30pm in term time. Contact for further information.
