Friends of Heatree

The Friends of Heatree network was created to help support us in the work of Heatree Activity Centre in a Christ-centred way. Over the years Heatree has had an incredible impact on the lives of many children and adults, through outdoor adventure and Christian outreach. Our aim is to follow God’s guidance in how He wants to use Heatree. 

‘Unless the Lord builds the house, it’s builders labour in vain.’ Psalm 127

We cannot build without God’s help and so we invite you to become a Friend of Heatree and be part of this journey with us... 

How can I get involved?


  • Support the work of Heatree and its staff through regular prayer
  • Pray for specific areas or for future projects at the Centre
  • Start a prayer group with others, or come and join us for our annual Day of Prayer (date for 2024 tbc)


  • Volunteer your time and skills to help in various areas around the Centre
  • Join a working party day where volunteers can help on specific projects (such as helping to rebuild the Low Adventure course, grounds keeping, or painting and decorating)

Why should I join?

This is primarily an act of service for which we would be deeply grateful.

Join us if you want to: 

  • Pray for a cause you care about and see God at work in the lives of children and young people
  • See God use Heatree for His purposes and His glory
  • Be part of a community of believers seeking God’s Kingdom and His righteousness together
  • Support our charity through practical service

What will I receive?

Our aim is to:

  • Send you a quarterly email news update sharing what’s been happening at Heatree and a glimpse of our future plans
  • Send you a monthly prayer email, celebrating answers to prayer and suggestions for prayer points for the coming month
  • Provide opportunities to volunteer your time and skills and help with jobs around the Centre
  • Invite you to an annual social gathering at Heatree and a Day of Prayer

* Please note that all volunteers working at Heatree need to be 18 years or over and ideally have their own transport due to the remote location. Volunteers may be subject to a DBS check whilst working on-site. All necessary PPE will be provided and volunteers will be supervised at all times.
