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 Mondays (8 am at the College),
    Thursdays (8 am at St Paul’s chapel) and on the 4th Sunday of the month (6.30 pm at St Mary’s, Old Harlow).
  • 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
