Here you will find all the up to date information about what is happening with youth and children at HTR along with helpful resources for children, young people and their parents.
- During our Sunday Morning Services in the first half of 2021 we had a small section called a 'Family Slot'. In these fun sessions we had specific activities, bible readings and short messages that were targeted at children and families. On various occasions, we sent out activity sheets for the children to do during the week.
