Open Air Service and Fish & Chip Lunch!

On Sunday 29th August, we held an All Age, Open Air Morning Service (Holiday Club Special) in the vicarage garden.

This was the first time the whole Church has been together in a single service since before Covid restrictions began!

How wonderful it was to see the so many from HPC, both young and old, catching up whilst sharing a fish and chip lunch together after the service.

Summer 2021 Holiday Club

Jungle Jamboree Holiday Club
was amazing!!!

It was brilliant to be able to enjoy 3 days of action
packed fun – Songs, drama, Bible stories, crafts, whacky
challenges, custard pies  and more!

Families Togther for Jesus

While our Sunday Groups could not meet together,
here at HPC we introduced a new Family Service on Sunday Mornings – “Families Together for Jesus”

This was an All Age / Family Service on Sunday Mornings which ran alongside the Morning Service to replace our regular Sunday School groups

It was a great opportunity to see other families and encourage one another as we looked at the bible together.

Sessions included a bible story and short talk, family activities and prayer time and songs that we could even can sing along to (as it was outside!).

Pimms & Pudding

This was Women2 Womens’ first opportunity to meet together without a restriction on numbers!

On Thursday 22nd around 50 women gathered in The Vicarage garden on this warm summer evening. We shared a glass of Pimms, an array of puddings and much convivial chat! Many who came were invited guests of the HPC family.

Susie Graham was our speaker and she really helpfully pointed us to Jesus, who, at cost to himself, restores our broken image. This gave us plenty of food for thought and there will the opportunity to explore this more, and opportunities to have your questions answered on our Christianity Explored course in the Autumn

Walk & Talk


Around 20 men from HPC met together at Abbot’s Wood to enjoy an evening walk, and have the opportunity to catch up with each other… before rewarding themselves with a drink at the local pub!

Youth Zone Reunion!


At the recent reunion YouthZone members, both
old and new, enjoyed a fun-filled evening of outdoor
games, fun, chat, silliness and refreshments,
plus a short and informal Bible discussion.

Women2Women Welcome back event.

30 ladies (the limit because of COVID restrictions) from HPC met together in The Vicarage garden on a sunny summer’s evening with cake! There was a ‘people bingo’ to get us reconnecting; for some it has been a while and for others meeting for the first time. We then had a reminder of the main purpose of Women2Women: reaching out and building up, seeking to help the Christian women of HPC to grow in confidence in our faith in Jesus but also to introduce our friends to Jesus. Susie gave a little tantalising insight into how she is going to introduce our friends to Jesus at the next event in July, Pimms and Pudding. Lastly we had a fun and informative interview with Esther Griffin, the ‘new’ curate’s wife. Then more chat, of course!!!
Join us for our next event - Pimms & Pudding! Thurs 22nd July @ 7.30pm
