We are a close-knit community located in Huntly, NZ who believe in the God who is made evident throughout the entire biblical story. As a result of this we seek to reflect His character with our lives as we interact with one another and with the world we live in.
Just as God has ‘bridged the gap’ by reaching out to us all in love through the person of Jesus Christ, we too seek to ‘bridge the gap’ and extend God’s love in both word and deed to those in our community.
Our Foodbank, CAP, 828 Youth Group, the Inspire Youth Hub, and our Car Boot sales are a snapshot of this intention, outworking itself within our community.
We are also family; And we seek to love one another, just as God has loved us. Each Sunday we gather as a family to spend time together and to support and encourage one another. And then throughout the week there are also a range of smaller gatherings that continue on with this same support and encouragement for the realities of day to day life.
You are welcome to come and be a part of this community.
Murray and Jenny Henderson are the pastors of HBC. Murray and Jenny have a heart for God and for people connecting with their maker. Having a passion for reaching the lost, they majored in evangelism at Lifeway Bible College, graduating in 1993. They have since pioneered other outreaches in Huntly. For over forty years now they continue to be involved in worship leading, youth work and Christian camping. Murray and Jenny have combined their farming business with community roles and ministry while raising a family. With their three now grown and an itching passion for community change, they were ready for a new calling and challenge when in June 2014 were called to pastor HBC.
They now help oversee, encourage and equip the amazing teams who make all the ministries happen!
HBC's overisght is a team effort, with a leadership team sharing the roles of pastoral care, preaching and oversight.
