Wider Church


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

We have a long history of supporting the Gospel Partnerships. In recent times this has taken the form of working with other St Albans Evangelical churches to pray for our city and to put on outreach and training events.

We have a close relationship with our neighbour in the parish: 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. Our vicar is currently on General Synod as well. Members of our leadership are part of the 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
