We’re pleased you’ve found it to our website, it’s a great way to find out more about Hope Church. We are holding in-person services on Sundays at 9:30 and 11:30am, however due to the restrictions in place because of the coronavirus outbreak, these are limited in number and booking is required. Please visit our return to services page for more information. Our 9:30am service is also available live online on YouTube.

PLAN A VISIT
We've plenty of free parking available behind the church centre as well as across the road in our overflow car park in Cavendish Street (this is well sign-posted). When you arrive you will be greeted by our fantastic Welcome Team and you can arrange for someone to meet you personally if you like.
WHAT TO EXPECT
Each service starts with worship led by a band and after about 20 minutes children go to their groups for their fun-packed activities. Later in the service one of the church leaders will preach a message from the Bible and you can hear our recent messages here. We usually take communion (bread and wine) together once a month.
During the service the church will have an opportunity to give money into our giving buckets, although many will give by other means, such as by standing order or on our giving page. There is no obligation to give to the church but we teach that this is good for people to do as part of their worship.
CHILDREN & YOUTH
Each service has five groups for children, Shine (Age 1 - 2), Glow (Age 3 - 5), Ignite (School years 1 to year 2), Blaze (School years 3 - 4) and Illuminate (School years 5 - 6). These groups start around 15-20 minutes into both services and a notice will be given when it's time to leave the main service. All of our children’s work volunteers are well trained and have had all the appropriate safety checks. Visiting children are really welcome to come and join our groups. For more information, visit the Hope Kids page.
In both services youth in years 7 - 11 have their own group that meets after the time of worship. Our youth work doesn't end on Sundays - check out what else we're up to during the week.
