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, where they can feel free to run around and make noise. Due to a number of factors, we are unable to offer a supervised creche at this time.


On a Wednesday morning from 10-11.45 am we used to have Coffee and Kids, our very friendly outreach group for pre-school children and their parents/grandparents or carers. Sadly, we had to temporarily close due to Covid and are not yet back up and running again.  

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.


We meet on Fridays from 3.30pm until 4.45pm in the Parish Centre during term time. Contact  for further information.


Ignite AM

Ignite AM is our group for those in years 6-9. We alternate between joining in with the whole church service and heading out for our own Bible study of the same passage. Expect good fun, big questions and hot chocolate!
Ignite PM (age 11-18)

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