About Us

Who we are, where we came from and where we're headed as a church family

Our Mission & Vision

Our vision and mission is to help connect people to people,

people to God and

people to His mission.

Jesus explained the mission of his church quite clearly  when he said
“Go and make disciples of all the nations, baptising them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit. Teach these new disciples to obey all the commands I have given you.” (Matthew 28:19-20)

Who we are

At HCF we care about one thing more than anything else, Jesus! We are a family of individuals that have found hope and acceptance in Jesus, and simply want others to experience the same.

Where we come from

Phillip and Eunice Quantril planted Hingham Christian Fellowship in the 1960’s. In October 2017, Andy and Alison Barnard moved to the U.K. from South Africa in order to serve as pastors of HCF. We are affiliated to the Assemblies of God Great Britain.

Where we’re headed

What’s the bottom line? More than ever, HCF is committed to fostering a family built around hope. Hope for the future. Hope for progress. Hope in Jesus. And as we move forward as a church family, acceptance and belonging remain at the centre of who we are as followers of Jesus. 

What this means for you

What does this mean for you? Most importantly, you’re always welcome at HCF. We’re saving a seat for you. Wherever you’re at in your faith journey, you’ll always be accepted as part of HCF family.
