Small Groups

Small groups are a central part of our church fellowship. Our small groups are always glad to welcome new members - and if you would like to know more about joining a group please contact Katherine Willis.

We have 33 small groups here at HTC, and each group is different. Some groups meet weekly, others fortnightly; some in the daytime and others in the evenings, on various days of the week. Some groups focus on a particular age group or are single-sex groups, whilst others have a much broader membership drawn from across our church family. Each group is led by one or two mature Christians, and most groups meet in the leaders' home.

Our theme for this year at HTC is ‘Loving Community’, as we focus particularly on becoming ‘Closer Followers of Jesus’ as part of the HTC vision. During the year we will look at different aspects of being a loving community and how we can learn to love and serve one another better - individually, with our small groups, and all together.  In the Spring, small groups are studying A New Community (following Jesus together - lessons from Luke's Gospel). 

Our vision is for small groups to be upward, inward and outward:


developing members' faith in God through Bible study, prayer and service


providing fellowship, pastoral care and prayer for each member of the group


primary places for the nurture and encouragement of service and practical discipleship, as well as places of committed prayer for HTC mission partners
