  Welcome to Hope Community

This is the centre.  This is the hinge-point of Christian faith.  This is the moment we stop and watch, realizing that what we witness is on our behalf, for our life and hope and future.

Every year we realize that we need to tell and hear the story once more.  Every year we find ourselves surprised by it, overwhelmed, and yet comforted in a way that’s hard to explain.  Every year we are drawn back to humble worship, and the pledge of renewed commitment.

We invite you to take time to embrace the story.


Holy Week Experiences

Join with Hope as we remember and re-live this live changing week in the history of the world and our stories.

Sunday, March 29

Holy Week begins as we gather to celebrate Palm Sunday.  10am at Hope.

Journey to the Cross

Engage in this interactive experience and walk through the central events of Holy Week. This drop in reflective journey will take at least 30 mintues.  In the sanctuary at Hope: Tuesday-Friday, 6:30-9:00pm.  Thursday night, several special stations will be incorporated to better help kids and families.

First Communion

Would you or your kids like to participate in communion?  Like to know more about its significance and meaning?  Join us for an interactive introduction to one of the sacraments Hope regularly practices.  Thursday, April 2 @ 5:15pm.  Please RSVP to the office. We’ll begin by doing the ‘Journey to the Cross’ and then have a pizza supper followed by some time to talk about communion.

Thursday, April 2

Maundy Thursday.  Join us for a simple but significant reflective gathering on Jesus’ death and sacrifice as we gather with our community around a table and celebrate communion…just as Jesus and the disciples did 2000 years ago. The service will start at 7pm and last approximately 40 minutes.

Friday, April 3
