For Parents

Even though HTC Youth is especially for kids, parents and other adults in the community are important to us. Adults can support HTC Youth in a variety of ways – by praying with us in Morning Prayer on Wednesdays at 8:45am at Holy Trinity Church, by becoming a volunteer leader or by offering to help us with special events or by simply telling others in the community about HTC’s Youth Ministry and our commitment to kids.

A Safe Place for Kids

An important part of our commitment to kids is how we keep kids safe. Holy Trinity is dedicated to provide kids with a safe and fun place to hang out with their friends, and experience full exciting life. Our staff and volunteer leaders know they are responsible for modelling lives of hope and integrity. We are ever striving to make sure that kids are as safe and cared for as possible. We have developed Church-wide policies and procedures to ensure that kids are protected when they are with our staff and leaders as well as when kids are part of our sponsored activities. All of our leaders are DBS checked and have undergone Child Protection Training. Also, all of our events are risk assessed.

An Exciting Place for Kids

The teen years are a time of excitement, risk, and sometimes even danger. Teenagers today face challenges that didn’t even exist a few years ago and they live in a world that is largely uncharted territory for most adults.

Without clear guidance it is easy for young people to lose their way and feel lost in the crowd. This is where HTC Youth comes in. We aim to equip young people with the courage to stand out as Christians, and also to recognise how much God loves each of them.

Parents Emails

A Parents Update email is sent out monthly - this informs you of what we are doing with the youth over the coming month and any dates for your diary. A Parents Prayer email is sent out monthly - this asks you to join us in praying for the youth and highlights certain areas for prayer. If you would like to be added to the mailing list for either of these emails, please ask Holly Byles at hollybyles@holytrinityclaygate.org.uk
