In the community, for the community

New Hope Community Church is a friendly and welcoming gathering of people who live mainly in the local area, who love God and want to worship him in a meaningful and relevant way. 

We aim to live out our Christian faith in a way that will enable others in the community to know His love too. We seek to serve all those who live and work in the local community. We do this in a number of different ways, from toddler groups and parenting courses to Community Fun Days.
