Our annual HTB Network Magazine is a celebration of our family of churches, and a snapshot of how God has been at work in our church plants, and in their wider communities.

Revitalise Edition 6

The theme of edition six is ‘Reviving the Heart of the Nation’. Our prayer is to see a revitalised Church at the heart of every city, estate, town or rural parish, one passionate about serving its community, whether that’s responding to the cost-of-living crisis, war and refugee resettlements or helping congregation members through addiction.

We hear from Archie Coates and Ray Driscoll; as well as celebrating the launch of 29 new church plants in cities and towns including Basingstoke and Wyken. We also have a special feature called “Choosing between Heating, Eating and Meeting Bills”; where we hear from Bruce Cornell, the CEO of Crosslight Advice, on what we, the Church, can do to help those struggling with the cost-of-living crisis. We hope you enjoy this latest edition.
