We have a big vision for our town, but the challenges here in Hastings in seeing this vision come alive are huge. Hastings is a beautiful town, with so much creativity and promise, but also some significant challenges. HTH is situated in the Castle Ward of Hastings where over 33% of children are living in poverty and is 68 out of 9,500 wards in terms of crime deprivation nationally. Unemployment rates are over double the county average and Hastings has the highest rate of youth unemployment in East Sussex.
We have sensed God speaking to us recently about providing ‘angels’ for our church. Our church architecture has numerous angels dotted around the building and is built in the old parish of St Michael the archangel. We sense there are people who are not part of HTH, who would love to pray for the work here and to give financially to support this vision – becoming an ‘HTH Angel’.
If you would like to become one of our first HTH Angels, please do email our vicar Simon through firstname.lastname@example.org
