Theresa Fryer — Form Student

My year in Hackney was massively transformational. It offered a space in which I could take my current skills and grow them into gifts that impact the local community. I have made life long friendships and witnessed God at work in this dynamic and exciting church.

Nate Hayes — Musician

This past year has been a gift. Through serving and learning from the community at Hackney Church, I have experienced God’s outstanding love and tremendous growth. It also has been great to use my skills to support the vision, consequently discerning the call on my own life.
