About Us

Heart 4 Harlow is an expression of churches partnering together and with the wider community for the good of Harlow and the surrounding villages. We seek to encourage a united Christian response to the needs of Harlow

At our heart are three things:-

  • Prayer – We meet to Pray on Monday’s (8am at the College),
    Thursday’s (8am at St Paul’s chapel) and on the 4th Sunday of the month (6.30pm at St Mary’s Churchgate Street.
  • Partnership – With the churches through a regular Christian Leaders Forum and with the wider community including the Council, charities & business.
  • Participation – We believe we are called to take action to respond to the needs of our town.  Sometimes directly, e.g. through our College Chaplains and Hope 4 Harlow (Churches providing shelter for the homeless) and sometimes through supporting others (e.g. MRCT, Streets2Homes, Harlowsave coop, Street Pastors)


Flowing from these come 5 areas of partnership and engagement:-

  1. Commerce (Shops and Business)
  2. Civic (Local Authority & Councillors, MP, Police and Fire Services)
  3. Art, Culture and Education (Schools, College & UCH, Arts associations)
  4. Health & Wellbeing, (Charities and Community Groups, NHS and the care sector)
  5. Churches and Chaplaincy
