This is the youth community of Hackney Church. We’re on a mission to call the youth of East London to life in all its fullness. We normally meet up on Sundays and midweek in groups, as well as gathering for special events, conferences and trips throughout the year.

Due to lockdown we’re bring all our services and hangouts back online! Join us Sunday at 10:45AM on Zoom, where we’ll meet before the 11AM broadcast, watch it together and then hangout after in our Zoom rooms. You won’t want to miss it!⁠

We have 2 Zoom rooms:

  1. YOUNGER YOUTH Room | Years 7-9
  2. OLDER YOUTH Room | Years 9+

Sign up to HCY Groups to access the Zoom links or head to @hackneychurchyouth on Instagram and send us a message!


At our morning services we have a youth Sunday Service aimed at our 11-18’s. It is a great way for teenagers to have mentors and connect with their friends on a Sunday morning. The program consists of games, small group time as well as a talk in a youth setting. Youth can register online and check in to their own service from 10:45AM.



We are passionate about seeing the tide of youth ministry rise in East London. We long to see churches full of young people throughout East London and want to play our part in seeing this vision become a reality. We have been asked by the Diocese of London to support and resource the Church of England, in the area of Stepney, by becoming a Youth Minster. We have a mandate to grow and continue to reach youth in our local area while also doing all we can to help other churches thrive in their work with young people. Watch this space for the launch of an emerging youth network.


Groups are at the heart of what it means to belong in HCY. These are smaller groups of young people of the same age and stage who meet for friendship, community and relationship with each other and with their leaders. We believe this is where everyone can be known inside the larger community and be cared for by youth leaders.

We take the safety and wellbeing of your young people very seriously at Hackney Church Youth. Every one of our youth leaders has undergone a DBS check and trained in safeguarding through the Church of England.
