The area
Neighbourhood: South Kensington
With its ivied mews, row upon row of Poppins-esque white washed mansions, and placid garden squares, it's easy to see the charms of South Kensington. And with superb access to Hyde Park, Holland Park and Kensington Gardens, as well as the largely child-friendly and mostly free Museum Quarter (not to mention more major attractions like Royal Albert Hall) such charms are easy to make the most of. As welcoming and cosmopolitan as it is reserved and residential, South Kensington is always a hit with visitors.

This Christian Cultx is the biggest Hypocrixy I have come across. It's such a waste of a beautiful large green space in one of the most expensive areas in London. Even in their busiest services, it's hard to find interesting people to socialise with. I think that they have an issue with good looking well dressed confident people. I could smell the Jealouxy in the air with cold looks. Some of them are 'friendly' but I discovered later that it's a facade, as they are not helpful. For some reason I thought that many Christians were good people, but not really, they are just ordinary. I think that the reason why there are so many hypocritex attending this church is because they believe that you can do whatever you want as a sinner, do not have to self-improve (by the way, they have an issue with Spiritual Growth) as longer as you idolise Jesus (not really following his example), then he will 'wash your sins' before you go to 'Heaven'.

They appear to welcome everyone, but it's just a formality. The alpha course attracts people due to the posh location and the ordinary free meal. But they don't explain the Life of Jesus properly, also they have prejudices about other belief systems. They call you out if you talk in depth about Jesus teachings and other spiritual topics excluded from mainstream modern Christianity. The group discussions are restricted, people keep silent in order not to say the 'wrong' thing according to this 'church'. It appears as an opportunity to socialise with others but they do exclusivism and there are fundamentalist prejudiced people who would judge you and complain behind your back about petty things and with the motive of envy if you stand out. If you briefly react verbally to their nonsense they can be vindictive with gaxlighting and narcixxixm, NO unconditional love, humility, neither forgiveness like Jesus practised. So, like any other cult it would be hard to develop personal relationships unless you are controlled by this 'church'.

They perform some sort of rock&roll 'Holy Spirit' ritual, the music decibels are very loud which I guess it's part of their 'Holy Spirit' Trance. I think that if you are interested in Christianity, you better read the Bible at home. Although, after this negative experience with some hypocxite Christians, it made me question about the programming we get in society about Jesus, the Bible and God. Also, it made me understand about the sad challenges in society because of groups of people in organised fundamentalist religions.

I still have Faith in God, but in my own way, and I find that I can have a more intelligent open conversation with an atheist than with a Christian H fundamentalist. Oh! I would not recommend the prayers from the team members because they have a pessimistic view about life and they encourage you to be a loner just focus on loving an imaginary God. Some of them think that positive thinking and the law of manifestation is false, so no wonder why some of these people are so aloof and have an issue with happy people with good vibes. I think that God wants us to live a happy life loving his creation, but this church can be a real downer.

Not much from the outside although a surprisingly large cemetery round the back overlooked by the elevated gardens of the rich. However unlike the London Oratory next door every entrance was like Fort Knox with electronic locks. Impossible to gain entrance and not at all welcoming for a House of God. So check opening times before you visit.

I am grateful to HTB for converting me AWAY from Evangelical Christianity. I attended a service years ago, at which I asked about discrepancies between New Testament stories. The minister could not cope with the question, as apparently he believed that all scripture is inerrant (meaning without error). Instead of answering my question, he spoke darkly about "some people" trying to make out that the scriptures were corrupted. I felt embarrassed, as all I was doing was asking a question about discrepancies between Bible texts (of which I later discovered there are many).

At the end of the service, I walked out and registered on a course at the Institute of Contemporary Christianity. It was a moment of insight - akin to a conversion. I loved the ICC course, became a liberal catholic, and have never regretted my decision.

Don't go to HTB. Theologically they are extremists, who ignore the past 100 years of Biblical scholarship, and use group pressure to propagate their sometimes lunatic views.

I came once on a sunday while I was in town.
They are a warm and welcoming church with a spirit lead worship team and a fairly young ministry. It felt like a calm oasis of peace right in the centre of London.
Thank you to HtB for providing a safe and good place to worship.
I hope to be back soon.

I had not been there since I was married there. I was just the way I remembered. It was and still well worth your time to look around. I took my packed lunch and sat in the surpeb garden. It is nice and quiet for this part of West London.Very good transport links to the west end.

It's very much a church for young people now - used to be more robust teaching wise competing with the likes of All Souls, but there is now a focus on younger people which means music/ worship is front and centre competing more with the likes of Hillsong than the other evangelical powerhouse churches in the city. Alpha course is very much a starter course in Christianity rather than exploring the Christian faith in any great depth. And Sunday teaching feels very much on sync with Alpha rather than developing/ moving on into deeper exploration of Christian themes/ the Bible; teaching ends up very generic rather than any real focus - All Souls/ St Helens/ Co-mission are the places for that. Still if you are more of a Hillsong type and are not a fan of teaching ministries this may be for you and there are opportunities to serve with homeless people/ prison ministries.

Not being a believer but having encountered many Christian services through school, family and friends (mostly hatch, match and dispatch), I had generally watched as a benign, polite but rarely engaged hanger on, occasionally curious and intrigued by music, art, architecture, language, liturgy, ritual and protocol. In the West Country much of it was dour nonconformism, pragmatic uninspiring C of E and doses of happy clappy, singalongaGod stuff. That said I’ve read a lot about comparative religion and no one can ignore its role in history or modern life.

So from that wish washy context, I was at least inquisitive when I heard from enthusiastic and rational members of an HTB satellite in Plymouth, that the mother ship was an experience not to be missed.

They were right. Firstly this is a spectacular building and large impressive space. A stone’s throw from the V&A and has an ample share of sumptuous Victorian art, not least the windows etc. But it is also equipped with the best quality sound lighting and IT support so that everyone can see all that goes on. The ground floor and the balconies have been put to best use, the place is very versatile. So far as could tell there is no dress code, least of all amongst the clergy (how could I even think of calling them that?) but the spirit of the place is an amazing mix of bright lively families and folk of all ages awash with enthusiasm combined with an evident tolerance and compassionate wining worldliness. In fact I was confronted with such large numbers and such a wide spectrum of ages, types, races and personalities that I struggle to describe or remember the overall impact. They queued for ages to get in, the church was full and buzzing well before the start. The music, the visuals, the presentations were all well done and relevant triggers for tweaking or substantially reviewing your approach to life. I can’t tell whether I was ever at risk of being carried away by the kaleidoscope but I certainly came out thinking that it had done no harm and was something I was pleased not to have missed.

Check out the timings and flavours of the four Sunday services. Take a look at examples and clips of the HTB approach online. There is first rate catering and an impressive bookshop in the church buildings.

Great worship team and Sunday message. A mix of tourists and regulars. Warm and friendly. Coffee shop in the basement following the service. God is using HTB in the midst of central London.

Cheerful, packed, welcoming, multicultural middle sized church, packed to the rafters with worshipers.

The big drums and strobe like lights may shock conservatives.

The sweet children dressed in nativity costumes charm all.

Well choreographed by gifted musicians. Strong upbeat messsge. This December service was a family/Nativity special.
