What does Sunday morning look like?

If you're new: welcome! We're glad you've found us.

What's HBBC like?

We believe God must be the central focus of all worship.

The Bible provides the basic outline for how God desires to be worshiped when believers come together on the Lord’s Day; that is, through preaching of God’s Word, fellowship, the Lord’s Table, prayer, and singing.

We believe the Bible emphasizes the greatness and holiness of God which should cause us to worship Him respectfully and reverently, to be balanced with the salvation and love of God which should cause us to worship joyfully and confidently!


Our worship setting

We believe that the voices of believers should be the primary instruments of worshipping God through music.

We also believe God has given musical abilities to be used for His glory, which includes aide in congregational singing by the use of musical instruments.

We believe there is no set Biblical rule for which instruments can be used in worship as long as they are used in aiding the congregational voice rather than drowning voices out or drawing unnecessary attention for show.

We believe that the words of the songs should be more important in drawing out the emotions rather than the style, but also recognise God is glorified through our emotions as they respond to singing the truths of His praise. We seek to balance cultural “sing-ability” with edification for all the saints.

The main guidelines for the song selection regardless of length, age, repetition, or style are:

•Is it true according to God’s Word?

•Is it spiritually edifying?

•Is it reverent balanced with joy?

•Is there a balance of psalms, hymns, and spiritual songs?

Children's ministry

Where do my children go?

We don’t host a separate Children’s Church as a part of our Sunday Morning Service as we recognise that;

  • Church is for the family unit not just for the grown ups

  • Children can and should be a part of learning about the God of the Bible.

The benefits are;

  • Your whole family receives the same input.

  • You can talk with your children about what they heard during the service

  • Children learn to sit, listen, worship in God’s presence as Gods word is taught

  • Children are encouraged to have their own Bible, notebook and pens.

  • Children have the opportunity to practice looking up verses in their Bibles each week

NOTE: Parents are encouraged to bring along a notebook and pencils so children can write down or draw anything that links to the Sunday Teaching as its happening. 

(We have notebooks and Bibles available for anyone to use during the service)

Parents a helpful (free) resource can help equip you. We highly recommend it to you Keeping Children in Church” by Scott Brown.

Infants are welcome in the service as are all children at any time. We believe children are not an interruption to a Sunday worship service and encourage parents to be responsible for their own children during the service.
