About Us


Jesus said, “I came so they can have real life, more and better life than they ever dreamed of.” John 10:10

Welcome to HCC, we’re so pleased you’re here, and we’re looking forward to getting to know you.

Church for everyone

We’re a church. We’re not about being ‘religious’, we’re about living, experiencing and applying Bible-based faith in the 21st Century. Our passion is finding real and practical ways to help people reach towards the best that God has for their lives. We care for one another and we’re keen to get stuck into caring for the rest of the world too – we’re actively involved in many areas of our community such as schools, shelters and the music scene. It’s exciting to connect and become part of something bigger than we could ever be on our own – together we can make a difference!

Where to start

Most people coming to HCC for the first time choose to come on Sundays, but there are lots of other ways to get connected. You could try Alpha, our faith exploration course, or one of our other regular gatherings. You’ll be very welcome whenever!


Do I need to be a Christian to come?

No! You’ll find people who come to HCC are all in kinds of different places on their faith journey, so don’t feel you have to be a Christian to fit in. You’re welcome to bring whatever your thoughts or perspective is as we explore some of the bigger issues of life, and you’ll hear more about what we believe.

Will I meet people like me?

All kinds of people from all kinds of backgrounds and of all kinds of ages come to HCC, so you’re bound to find some people you click with.

Can I bring my kids?

Sure! Kids are welcome any time, but you might want to come along at 10:15am on Sundays where we have groups designed specifically for them.

What if I want to get involved?

HCC is run by the people who come, so we’ll be really pleased if you want to join in with things! We’re always on the lookout for people to help – whether its making coffee, putting out chairs or making cakes for an event. Or you could think about joining a team.
