We wanted to say a massive THANK YOU to all the church family as our time at HT comes to an end. Thanks so much for the loving messages, earnest prayers and for the unbelievably generous gifts you have given us - we were blown away by your kindness and love. We’ll always be praying for HT and trust that, by God’s grace, you will flourish as a fellowship in the coming years. We’d like to stay in touch with you all.
God Bless, Paul, Elizabeth, Jonathan, Joel and Ben.

We all get one life to live and deep down we’re asking, ‘What’s it all about?’
Christianity Explored gives you time and space to think through the big questions of life, and to consider the person at the heart of the Christian faith - Jesus Christ. Each lesson focuses on a different aspect of Jesus' life, and of our lives. In it we work through Mark’s Gospel, one of the life stories of Jesus found in the Bible.
We’ll run the course ‘socially distanced’ using Zoom. It is open to absolutely anyone; for those who want to further investigate the claims of Jesus; for those who may have questions they’ve never quite resolved and for those who just want a reminder of what we believe.
It doesn’t matter if you’ve been coming to church all your life, or whether Christianity is brand-new to you – you’ll be welcome.
If you’re interested, contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we will get back to you. If you think this course will help someone you know, encourage them to contact us. We will arrange timings and dates of meetings to suit those who respond. The course requires a time commitment of about 1 1⁄2 hours for each weekly session (with some reading of a portion of Mark’s gospel in-between). It runs for seven weeks.
South American prayer update - Peru
Peru has now confirmed 313,000 cases of the virus and 11,133 deaths.
70% of people in Peru work informally, this means they have nothing to fall back on in a situation like this. Many work in the markets or the fields, or just look for work each day. It is hard for people to find food each day - please pray that God will provide for their needs and help them find support from local projects and churches. Please pray for a drop in Coronavirus cases. Thank you Lin McGrath.
