Most areas of the church are run by volunteers who serve magnificently. We believe everyone has a part to play in the life of Hope Church, and we also know that the church thrives with good and godly leadership throughout.
We have an eldership team who are responsible for overseeing the church and a leadership team who assist the pastor in the day to day leadership of the church. There is also an Operations Team that look after our Sunday morning meetings and a Trustee team that are responsible for good governance.
