Sunday mornings at HSBC

You will receive a warm welcome at any of our services. There is no need to wear formal clothing when you come to our church. An offering is taken at all services but we don’t want visitors to feel they have to contribute to our funds.

Morning Worship. Our morning congregation is usually about 150-200 people. HSBC is built on a reformed, expository ministry, with a contemporary style of worship. Children of all ages are welcome and we run a crèche and Sunday school, except during school holiday periods when we have all-age services.

Communion is held in the morning service, normally on the first Sunday of the month.

Preaching Programme

The complete programme (including dates that have already passed) is being kept on this website to show the range of subjects covered in the preaching programme.

Sermons can be listened to on the web (including an archive back to 2006), and CDs with the sermons on these subjects and from our extensive library can be purchased. Go to our “Current Teaching” page for more details.
