Like all things we began small in 2002. Churches Together in Hitchin (CTH) campaigned, prayed and fundraised to employ our first Schools Worker.
In the beginning, we opened with a vision to provide RE lessons, assemblies and lunch groups as an opportunity to be the face of CTH within Hitchin schools
Over the next few years our reputation grew and in late 2006 we received a large anonymous donation. Enter our new Director.
With this new momentum, we were able to extend our work into all three Hitchin secondary schools and increased our provision to schools.
In 2008 we took over the chairing of the Forum and together we had our very first residential – Slum Survivor.
This was a fantastic weekend involving 36 young people from the local community where we lived in slums and managed to raise over £3000 for Soul Action.
In April 2015, we welcomed two of our wonderful volunteers onto our staff team - Amanda Maylin as our Office Manager and Donna Wade as our Self-Harm Worker.
In Sept 2016, we made a few changes to our model and we gained two new staff members. A Schools and Youth Worker and a Wellbeing Developmental Lead.
