HBC would like to invite you and yours to take part in our Backpackers Holiday Club this Summer! With a strong travel theme, there will be plenty of fun activities to get stuck into, crafting to do, and exciting games to play as the children get to “visit” a different European city each day; it’ll be like five different holidays in one week!
At Backpackers, in amongst all of the games and crafts, the children will hear about, and be given opportunities to explore, the Good News of Jesus; with connections between the games and different cities the children will be “visiting” being made through to moments throughout the events of Easter.
This Holiday Club is for children aged 5-11, and will run from 2nd-6th August 2021, from 9:30am-12:30pm. There will also be an All-Age Church Service focussed on the themes of the Holiday Club on the 8th August, starting at 10:30 am which you would be more than welcome to come along to if you would like!
If you have any questions, or would like to book your children in for this exciting week, please contact us at: email@example.com
Childrens’ groups have restarted and it’s great to welcome families back into the building! We have two groups running for ages 3-11years, on the 2nd, 3rd and 4th Sunday of each month. We are following current Covid guidelines to keep all our children safe. The first Sunday of each month is all-age worship, child friendly with activity books to help the children engage.
Each week we will be streaming our Sunday morning service, live on our website and our Facebook page. The service will start at 10.30am.

The Wednesday Club wasn’t fully protected against the floods of mid-February. None of our members was thankfully directly affected by the water, but in view of the uncertain weather and travel conditions on 19th February it was decided to cancel that morning’s meeting. The advertised “Baltic Cruise” was easily rescheduled. Penny Platts once again held our full attention with her talk on the Herefordshire market towns. The historical details are most fascinating. Karilyn and Richard Collins were again very welcome guests when they told us about their missionary work in Tanzania.
During the month of February we will be praying for the outward facing ministries within HBC.
Each day there will be a different prayer request from one of the groups, we would love for you to spend time praying for these with us.
The full month’s prayers can be downloaded here – Prayers February 2020
The highlight of January 2020 was definitely the intoduction to basket weaving by Clyde of Wildwicker. Clyde only uses willow twigs and branches from plants which he has propagated and grown himself. The beauty of a finished basket lies in its smooth feel, natural colours and sturdiness. Besides baskets, willow is also ideal for creating many other forms of practical or ornamental items. A special aspect of willow weaving is its therapeutic value. You can’t rush it.
2019 finished for us with a traditional Carol Service led by our Minister, Revd Steve Ansell. Steve will visit us again this month when he will reflect on his first full year at Hereford Baptist Church.
