Sundays at Hope Church

We’d love you to join us on a Sunday at one of our sites.
We expect you to encounter God as we meet through worship, preaching of the Bible and connecting with one another.

What to expect…

Our meetings last around 90 minutes, with all meetings including children and/or youth work depending on time and location.

We usually start by saying hello to people around us, so if you don’t know anyone, don’t worry everyone is very friendly and you will soon get to know people if you want to. We also love to share good new stories of what God has been doing in people lives and the church.

We then spend time enjoying God’s presence in sung worship and we encourage the church to bring contributions of prayer, share scripture, and use gifts of the Holy Spirit. It’s during our worship time that our Hope Tots and Hope Kids go to their groups.

This is usually followed by the preach from the bible with time to respond after the message in worship or prayer. At the end of every meeting there is an opportunity to be prayed for by our prayer team.

If you would like someone to meet you on your first visit or would like to know more please email welcome@hopecommunitychurch.co.uk

Teaching

The church teaching on a Sunday is mostly given by the preaching team of Hope Church, this team is made up of our Elders, Deacons and other leaders. We also have guest speakers visit us through the year. Head to our YouTube page to hear some previous teachings.

The teaching program is usually following a couple of teaching series all biblically based and then followed up with discussions in our life groups.

Worship Band

The worship band that leads us to a place of praise and adoration for God each week is a mixture of older and younger members of our church.

For Children & Youth

We are deeply committed to families with children at Hope. We want to help our tots, kids and youth to be growing disciples of Jesus, walking with Him, following Him and seeing Him do amazing things through them. We believe that helping them to worship, listen to God, pray, have a good understanding of the Bible and discovering their gifts will help them to become great disciples who make disciples! Our times together are fast moving and crazy because we believe that kids learn best when they are having fun!

Because we have multiple sites our Children and youth work will operate differently depending on the site. See below for more details.

Hope Tots

Hope Tots is for 0-5 year olds. It is a fun and interactive program with lots of free play and some adult let activities based on a Bible theme. The program starts about 15-20 minutes into the service after a few songs.

We run Hope Tots at our Wymondham Site and together with Hope Kids at our Thetford site.

We run Hope Kids at all our sites.

Hope Youth is for School years 7-13. Our team teaches our young people how to encounter Jesus, grow as disciples together and advance the kingdom of God in their world. We start Hope Youth after worship.
