No matter your interests or what stage of life you are at, we have something for you to help you connect with others and ultimately, get to know God better and serve Him. The best way to do that is to get involved in the adult groups for you outlined below.
Age Specific Groups
The aim of the HRBC 20’s and 30’s group is to see young adults grow in Godliness and to serve others throughout the church family. They meet on first and third Sunday nights of the month after evening church, and for other social events. Contact Keith for more information.

The aim of the 40s+ group is to allow friendships to form and develop in the busyness of life. There are 3 or 4 social events a year which are often the launchpad for lifelong friendships.

Afternoon tea is served and sitting around the tables there is a great buzz of conversation as we share about family and friends. A time of praise follows. Old and much loved hymns are always sung with great enthusiasm; now and again we even try one of the more modern songs of worship.
A variety of other items can be included in the programme – maybe a quiz or an interview and sometimes a member will share a personal story. A short helpful message from the Bible ends the formal proceedings. How quickly an hour passes when you are in good company enjoying yourself. Of course, Christmas and Summer outings are always popular, and the good news is it’s not just for the HRBC congregation – it is a MEETING POINT for anyone looking for company and friendship.

W3 (Whole Women Workshops)
The purpose of our group on Thursday mornings is to create a place where women of all faiths (and none) can meet and discuss issues of their lives in a friendly and inclusive manner.
We try to provide topics that are not only relevant and of interest to women of all ages and stages but which enable us to gently explore different aspects of the Christian faith.
We provide a creche for children under the age of 5.

Girls to Grans
Girls to Grans exists to give ladies of all ages the chance to meet together for fellowship, the building of friendships, old and new, and ultimately discipleship across the generations. Come and join us for breakfasts, mission evenings, Bible studies and social trips as we meet, make new friends and learn from one another what it means to be a God-fearing woman.

Lads, Dads and Granddads
Breakfast Bible studies, trips out bowling or to the rugby and other guest events – we want to see men develop as Godly leaders in churches, families and work places, having fun and making friends on the way.
It would be great to have you along, and bring a mate too!
