Youth and Children 

Here you will find all the up to date information about what is happening with youth and children at HTR along with helpful resources for children, young people and their parents.

Children


Family Slot - During our recent Sunday Morning Services we have had a small section called a 'Family Slot'. In these fun sessions we have specifically had activities, bible readings and short messages that were targeted at children and families. On various occasions, we sent out activity sheets for the children to do during the week. 

If you would like to watch our family slot videos please click here

All Age Service - We regularly host 'All Age Services' which are intended to bring the family of God together and for them to grow in their faith. During these Services, we have games, prayer activities, creative elements and more. If you would like to see a list of our upcoming services then you can find them here.

Sunday Groups - We run groups for children aged 0-11, and you can find our more information here. If you would like your child to join, then please find the dates below, you can find the registration form for Sunday Groups here. Please send the completed form back to Chloe or Sue.

Poem

L.O.C.K.D.O.W.N.
is a time to:-
L-isten to God's voice and reflect. 
O-bey His word and His teachings.
C-all on Jesus name and be calmed.
K-now what is the purpose of all this.
D-well in His presence. Do not panic.
O-ffer a prayer for everyone's safety.
W-ait and be patient. This too shall passover.
N-uture our personal relationship with Him.
