The HBC website was set up to celebrate the great things God is doing in the church and in people’s lives, and to create a platform for us to share, discuss and organise. It’s not just another informative website, the church community create the content, not administrators. Any user can submit a story, join groups, comment on posts and create events.
The internet is brilliant, but nobody can guarantee it’s 100% safe and secure. Whenever you share anything on the web, either publicly (by writing an update or a comment) or privately (such as the data you give to a website when signing up), have a think about how happy you would be for that information to get into the hands of a hacker.
Make your passwords as secure as possible and change them every few months. Use different passwords for different accounts. The HBC website admin team do not have access to your password. You may delete your account.
When writing on the website please keep it legal, keep it positive, keep it about the things that make HBC a great church, and show how God is a great God. Be nice to each other. We don’t like aggressive behaviour, if you see anyone being disrespectful, sexually explicit, fraudulent, unfriendly, or making personal comments about another user let us know and we’ll do something about it. Remember that people have differing opinions, respect this and don’t intimidate people into not offering theirs. We encourage the public to write comments on this website and so views stated may not represent the views of HBC.
For now only over 16s can register but we are looking to develop safety measures so that in future over 13s can also register.
We encourage you to have a public profile, but there are risks associated with this. If you do have concerns about being public on this website, you can change your profile to be hidden. Some data on your profile is viewable by yourself and by the website admin team, which includes the church office. The website will use your data to send you email notifications about the website depending on your own personal settings and the occasional website update. The church office may use your email address, phone number or other information you provide to contact you directly. We will not share this information with a third party.
