What we do

We want to play our part in revitalising the Church in the UK by planting vibrant churches both in strategic city centre locations and in areas of acute deprivation.

Established in 2017, CRT was built on HTB’s 30 years of church planting experience to further accelerate church growth in this nation. We focus on four key areas…

Our Impact

In the first four years, we’ve seen:


new churches planted


plant leaders trained


network churches resourced


churches partnered with Love Your Neighbour

Church Planting

Our mission is to plant Resource Churches and hundreds of other churches and sites in key towns, cities and areas of high deprivation across the nation – church plants that will become hubs for resourcing, planting and regeneration within their dioceses and communities.

Developing Leaders

Leadership is central to the effectiveness of our church plants. Our training is designed to equip, resource and prepare a diverse group of church planters from all backgrounds to lead churches that will transform their local communities.

Network Support

The HTB Network is a growing family of over 100 churches – mostly 1st and 2nd generation plants. CRT supports this Network by gathering and investing in its leaders and teams, providing ongoing training, ministry resources, and access to grants for strategic growth and social action projects.

Social Transformation

Through our Love Your Neighbour social action initiative, we are helping churches of all denominations provide practical help and support to those most in need in our society.
