Mission Partners

We are privileged to support six different mission agencies and partners, reflecting the interests of our members and our love of sharing the Good News at home and abroad, to young, old and in between!



Crosslinks is an international mission society with its roots in the Bible, working largely within the worldwide Anglican Communion. We support Chris and Ros Howles who work at the Uganda Martyrs Seminary. Chris teaches ordinands for future ministry, mostly in Uganda. As well as providing teaching on health, Ros works with some of the women students. This is the main destination of our mission support.

CMJ (The Church's Ministry among Jewish People)


We support Pedro and Anu Santos who run the Beit Immanuel hostel in Tel Aviv. Pedro heads up the work of this guest house, heritage centre and home for a fellowship of Messianic Jews and Gentiles and associated volunteer programme.


As well as being the society we support for home mission work, CPAS is our patron. A number of children from HTF go on its Pathfinder or CYFA Venture holidays each year.



Nick was curate at HTF between 2012 and 2015 before being appointed as Rector of the Drung Group of Parishes in the Republic of Ireland. Nick and Dorothy moved to Ireland with their children Bethany and William in January 2016 and we have been pleased to support their ministry across the Irish Sea.


The STEP (St Albans & Harpenden Christian Education Project) team of full time member, associates, volunteers and interns work in local secondary schools to provide imaginative RE lessons, special events, support for CUs and one-to-one initiatives.


Tearfund is the focus of our regular material aid giving and frequently of our emergency aid giving. We support their Harvest Appeal each year.

Mark and Ruth Smith


Our former Curate is Minister in Charge of the Kildrumferton group of churches, three Anglican churches in rural Ireland. He moved to Ireland in May 2020 with his wife, Ruth, and their little girl, Martha.
