Here at Heaton Baptist Church we believe that Jesus deserves to be at the heart of all we do, he is in our ‘DNA’. We’ve identified 3 aspects of our DNA and seek to live out these through our sermons, prayer, lifegroups, training courses, worship and outreach events.
Intentional mission: Taking Jesus to the world
Mission is essential to HBC. We invest in Alpha courses and other evangelistic events. We are committed to local mission in our work within the International community and particularly asylum seekers, we run CAP money courses and the marriage course. Our Life Centre holds many groups for toddlers and older children and youth, fellowship for older people and we hold regular outreach events throughout the year. We support an away team with missionaries in Kosovo, Albania and through short term missions to Romania, North East China, Central Asia as well as supporting young people on summer missions.
Spiritual maturity: Becoming more like Jesus
We encourage and facilitate spiritual growth through our biblically based sermons, weekly lifegroups and a range of corporate prayer and worship opportunities. We run yearly Lifecourses with an opportunity to look in depth at a particular teaching, area of growth or a time of spiritual reflection.
Whole life discipleship: Jesus in every part
We support our regular attenders in many areas of their lives. We run marriage, parenting and CAP money courses. We encourage sacrificial giving of time and financial resources in our aim to be more dependent on God. We teach balance in work, study, volunteering and home life so we give from a place of rest. We have fun as a family with regular parties together at Christmas, thanksgiving and for royal celebrations! Our sermon series regularly include teaching on relationships and life issues such as what it means to be a disciple of Christ, singleness, sexuality, healing, calling, missions, giving etc.
