Hope City Kuala Lumpur



Welcome to Hope City Kuala Lumpur

We are a church with a heart for the people and the communities of the great city of Kuala Lumpur.

We started just almost four years ago with a dream for the city of Kuala Lumpur. Our small team has now grown into a vibrant community gathering every Sunday at APW Bangsar. We believe the local church should be a place you can call home – where you can form friendships, grow in relationship with God and discover the potential he’s placed inside of you.
