SUNDAY MORNING CHANGE - CORONAVIRUS
Based on government advice, we won't be able to meet together on Sunday mornings for the foreseeable future. Instead we plan to have a time of worship, prayer, receive biblical teaching, and experience the presence of God via live stream at 10.30am each Sunday.
Our online services will be streamed via our YouTube channel. To watch them please <<click here>>
What to expect from our online meetings...
- a warm welcome and introduction by one of our Elders
- joyful worship led by an excellent band using a mix of modern and familiar songs
- meeting God and experiencing the presence of the Holy Spirit
- a talk based on the bible
- opportunity for prayer for your needs and situation (Each Sunday we continue to be able to offer prayer ministry via Zoom. A link is accessible below the Sunday video on our YouTube channel.)
The meeting lasts about 60 minutes.
The church teaching on a Sunday is mostly given by the Elders and Deacons of Hope Community Church, but we do also have guest speakers visit us through the year.
The teaching program is usually following a couple of teaching series all biblically based and then followed up with discussions in the life groups.
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
Due to the current Covid-19 situation we are unable to meet together and run our usual Children & Youth programme. However, our amazing teams continue create weekly videos that can be viewed via our YouTube channel. To access the videos please <<click here>>
Information about when and how we can start the programmes will be available here as soon as the Government updates the guidelines. Until then we pray that your children and young people will be blessed as they watch the videos and encounter the presence of God.
Programme History & Overview
I bet you are wondering why on earth the group is called Über! Well – it is quite simple really. One of the definitions of Über is “above and beyond the usual” and that nicely sums up how we want all our kids to be – above and beyond the usual in their walk with God!
At Hope Community Church, we want to help them to be good disciples of Jesus, walking with Him, following Him and seeing Him do amazing things as He builds His kingdom in them and 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 Über for God! Our times together are fast moving and crazy because we believe that kids learn best when they are having fun!
Mini Über (Under 5's)
The group usually splits up into two groups: Baby Über is for those that are 3 and under (normally parents stay in here) and Mini Über is for those that aren't quite in full time school.
Mini Über is available for both meetings.
Über (School Years 1-6)
We believe that it is important for all the children and young people to be part of the whole church family, so when we're safely able to meet together, the children stay in the main church service for the first twenty minutes, then it is off to Über!
Über is usually available for both meetings.
Über Plus (School Years 7+)
A changing program of teaching, discussion and integration into the main church meetings.
Uber Plus is part of the youth discipleship program moving youth towards integration into the main family of the church and giving opportunities to get involved in different areas of church life.
Über Plus would usually be available at our second meeting which was at 11.30am. In the future meetings times may change.
We have a committed prayer team that are available to pray with you each Sunday between 10.30am - 11.45am via Zoom. A link will appear underneath the Sunday video description streamed on our YouTube channel. Once the link has been clicked you will receive instructions about how to connect.
