Our heart is for people to feel they belong at HCC. It’s somewhere to call home, where you can be known, celebrated and loved. We’d love to connect with you…

Pastoral Care

We aim to offer care & assistance to those in need within the life of our church; whether it is a crisis, family issue, financial difficulty, general relationship problem, individual need, or any other challenge that you need  help with. If you’re part of a connect group we encourage your group community to help you but should your need require specific help, we have a pastoral care team who are more than willing to help you or connect you to the place of best help.  If you are a regular attender of our church and have any Pastoral Care crisis, please call the office on 4942 1351, and you will be connected to someone who will assist you.


Connect Groups

Experiencing God and doing life together

We have a diverse network of groups that meet across Newcastle and Lake Macquarie.  These groups are places to connect and develop friendships, and to become all you were created for.  They are places with space and encouragement for you to grow as a disciple, and to help others do the same.

There are a range of groups suitable to various age groups and interests.  They meet weekly or fortnightly.  Each are to be known by the love they have for one another (Jn 13:35). You’re welcome to join and discover all that God intends.

Check out the suburbs listed near you and make contact with the church office for details.
