Sundays — What to expect

Sundays — What to expect

People of all backgrounds, generations and phases of life come together at Hope Church on Sundays for lively worship and a thought-provoking sermon. Our 10am meeting is very family-friendly with a full programme for children and an excellent crèche facility (Discoverers).


We are very informal and relaxed; most people who come to Hope on Sundays will be dressed casually and will feel free to sit or stand at various points in the meetings, depending on their preference.

Our worship band usually includes singers, guitarists, a keyboard player and a drummer, and sometimes we also have a violin or even a flutist.


At 10am we meet in the Mill Lane Centre in Mill Lane and we start with a time of lively worship.


About 20 minutes into the meeting the 5-7s and 8-11s go to their different groups (Adventurers). All kids will have been booked into these sessions in order to conform to our safeguarding standards. The booking system is manned in the main entrance area.

News & Events

Information about upcoming events and news is usually given between the worship and the sermon. More will also be available at the Information Stand, so please feel free to pick up any leaflets of interest.


The talk typically lasts between 30-40 minutes and is bible-based.


Prayer is available for anyone who would like after the service and is usually provided next to the Prayer Ministry banner at the left of the main stage.


Tea & coffee (and occasionally lovely cakes!) are available at the end of the meeting. This is a great time to get to know new people and catch up with old friends.
