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.

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
