5PM_Times_new.png

WE MEET EVERY WEEK FOR BREAKFAST AND COFFEE AT 9:45AM. OUR SERVICE RUNS TO 11:15AM. COMMUNION IS HELD THE FIRST SUNDAY OF EACH MONTH.

This service is informal and open to all. The worship consists of contemporary music, family prayers, and preaching from the Bible


HomeGroups-02.png

Experience has shown that one of the greatest aspects of coming on an Alpha course is the incredible friendships that form. And that’s exactly how it should be- relationship is right at the heart of our faith: relationship with God, and with one another. Therefore, we continue to learn about the Bible and faith in Home Groups.

If you are interested in attending a home group please email info@htchurch.us and There are Home Groups running in McLean, Bethesda, Vienna, Arlington and Reston. Ordinarily an evening together would include a relaxed time with snacks or dinner, a Bible focused discussion and a chance to ask for prayer.  Come along and see you what you think!



I love Alpha, that it's all about relationships and it's a no judgement zone. You can ask any question. - GUY


HTC gives me space and the opportunity to focus on Jesus. - HANNAH


5PM_Times_new.png

THE 5PM EVENING SERVICE INCLUDES COMMUNION EVERY WEEK, A SHORT TALK AND AN EMPHASIS ON SUNG WORSHIP AND PRAYER, ALLOWING SPACE TO REFLECT ON GOD. 

At all the services there is an expectation that we will meet with the Father, through His son Jesus, by the power of His Spirit. We’re not called Holy Trinity for nothing!


Last Sunday - Oct 19th. 10am service.

ALPHA



The Alpha Course


Who is Alpha for? 

Alpha is for everyone; no question is out of bounds and you are free to discuss as much or as little as you wish. We don’t assume any background knowledge of, or belief in, Christianity and everyone is welcome.


What is Alpha?

Alpha is an opportunity to explore the meaning of life in an informal, fun and friendly environment. The Alpha Course consists of a series of talks, looking at topics including 'Who is Jesus?' and 'Why and how do I pray?', with the option of a weekend away. We meet for a meal and each talk is followed by discussion in small groups.

You don’t have to commit to the whole course – just come along for the first session and see what you think. 

We will be starting our new Alpha Course soon. If you would like more information please email alpha@htc.us and look out here for updates - we look forward to seeing you!

 


Our current course is:

Women's Events.



These sessions are designed to inspire, empower and engage you in your God given dreams and the direction you are called to as a woman of God. If your season is singleness, early married, motherhood or empty nesters then P/31 is designed for you. We regularly gather and seek to learn and grow. 

P/31 is Proverbs 31 : A chapter that challenges all women.

Mens Events.


These sessions are for the men of the church to build community, bring challenge and empowerment in Christ. Life for so many of us is busy with schedules, work, family, relationships, commitments and deadlines. #O'BRO is where iron-sharpens-iron, where accountability, friendship and support can be gained. It's informal, easy going and designed for men! Spread the word, invite others and get connected.

Ps: We may even just go play golf! Because let's face it, life can get too serious sometimes!

Giving.


You don’t need to be told this, but families grow. The HTC family is growing in its depth, its size, its reach and most of all its love. Growth like this needs support.

WORSHIP

DC WORSHIP INITIATIVE #DCWI  /  WORSHIPCENTRAL - LONDON UK


Our prayer is that as people come to worship, they will sense God's presence with hearts and minds awakened to his greatness and love. At HTC music is just one expression of our response to God and his goodness. 

There is a great excitement about all that God wants to do in and through the people of HTCWe believe that as we worship God, we learn more of his heart and are transformed by his Spirit to live lives that bring greater honor to him. 

The worship team count it a great privilege to serve and lead the church in worship. They meet monthly for worship and production team gatherings to connect, learn, pray and wait upon the Lord.

VISION



History & Vision.


HTC is a place where people of all backgrounds and beliefs can gather to discuss Jesus and explore life. As a local church we feel honored to have an opportunity to play our part in what God is doing in and through all the churches in the McLean and Greater DC area.

Lead Pastors Jamie and Andy Haith previously served the Church of England at Holy Trinity Brompton in London for 20 years. While working in partnership with Alpha USA, they developed a heart for America, and eventually came over to lead HTC.

The Alpha Course is at the core of our church, keeping the gospel central to all that we do. Alpha has now helped 23 million people worldwide to encounter Christ. 


  


HTC has its origins in the Church of England in the UK. It is inspired by and has strong connections to Holy Trinity Brompton. As such, we are a church that delights in working with all people, of any denomination or none, and has a vision to play its part in the re-evangelization of the nations and the transformation of society. HTB is the home of the now globally renowned Alpha Course.

At the core of everything at HTC is loving God and loving others with all our hearts. 

We'd love to see you on a Sunday.
