Sunday Worship Service & Sermon

A Sunday service starts at 10 am and finishes at 11.45 am

Dress is casual with jeans and a T shirt being an acceptable norm, some do dress up a bit more and have a little fun with it.

Coming to a service at Hope Central will involve:

9.50-10.15 am

  • receiving a welcoming greeting from local members of the church community on entry
  • finding a seat within the hall (sit anywhere you like)
  • watch the pre-service church notices on the projector
  • say hi to a friendly face
  • if you come in late, don't worry just find a seat and join in

Children's Church

Every Sunday morning we run age group based Children’s programs:

  • “Little Lights” for the pre-school age group
  • “Rockstars” for the primary school age group

The programs follow an age appropriate curriculum that is both fun and educational. Additionally, the programs are supported by a smart phone app that enables parents to continue the theme of each Sunday at home with their child during the week.

Children start the service in the main hall with their parents for a few songs, then exit the hall to start their program.
