Wellbeing         Spirituality        Creativity

HeartWell is an exciting new community of faith arising out of a partnership between The Avenue Church of Christ and Hartwell Church of Christ. Flowing out of a rich heritage of faith, HeartWell seeks to be open and accepting, diverse and inclusive, broad-minded and compassionate; a place where diversity is affirmed and people of different faith traditions, ages, gender identities, theologies and politics are welcomed and valued.

Giving Beyond Ourselves

The Heartwell Community is committed to making a difference in the world. One way we do that is by providing financial, material and pastoral support to a very special project: Arising Life Ministries in Zambia.  The charity A Future 4 Kids has been established by the Hartwell Church of Christ to support the wonderful work of ALMs. 

You can read more about ALMS, about AF4K, and about how you can share in the support by clicking HERE.
