Although we meet in a place, Hope Church is really a group of people - a family devoted to God, to each other and to Vauxhall.
Whatever your background and whatever your story, the good news about Jesus is the only thing that can bring real hope. That’s why we love telling people about Jesus and keeping him central in everything we do.
We want Hope Church to be a place where people of all ages and from all backgrounds can come together and hear the life-changing, hope-bringing message of Jesus.
Come and join us.
Everyone is welcome on Sundays – you don’t need to be a ‘good’ or ‘churchy’ person and you don’t need to wear anything special.
On Sundays we will always open the Bible and hear God speak to us through his word. We will talk a lot about Jesus – because we believe he is the real hope for Vauxhall. We will sing songs that praise God and we will talk to Him in prayer. We also love sharing food together and so we end our Sundays with a meal.
Our Sundays are family friendly and we have a children’s group for primary school age children during the service.
