Wider Church


Although our focus is primarily the local community, we look to partner with other like minded Evangelical churches whatever denominational background.

We are part of the South East Gospel Partnership (Three Counties area) and our leadership teams benefit from training events and mutual support.

We have a particularly close relationship with our close neighbours Park Street Baptist Church.

HTF is part of the Diocese of St Albans (covering Hertfordshire and Bedfordshire) and within this, is part of  St Albans deanery. We contribute to the synodical government structures and have representation on deanery and diocesan synods. There is an active Diocesan Evangelical Fellowship and a Renew St Albans group.

We support the Diocesan vision of Living God's Love. The vision expresses three key themes:

  • Going deeper into God
  • Transforming communities and 
  • Making new disciples
