We believe church is meant to be done together as a family and our ministries are designed to help everyone get connected into the life of the church – whatever phase of life you’re in!

From kids parties to arty rehearsals, student club outreach to compassionate charity work, we’ve got plenty of variety going on and we just know you’ll find a bunch of people that you love doing life with.

See outlines of our ministries below and chat to a leader on Sunday to find out how to get involved in your location.

Business Colab

Business // Professionals // Entrepreneurs

Here at Hope City Church we value every single person and understand that many who call Hope City their home are called to be God’s ambassadors in the workplace. We want to support and resource what we call our Marketplace Leaders to enable you to thrive in what you do and to be people who are influential, create an impact and who understand the power and role of generosity in building God’s house.

Our Business Colab is not intended just for entrepreneurs or people running businesses. It’s intended for professionals, leaders, managers or intrapreneurs in the workplace and those who aspire in any one of these areas. Without successful business people, professionals an workplace  managers and leaders our mission as a church can’t be realised. The Colab is our way of supporting you along the way by connecting you with like-minded people, mentors and practical input.

Business Colab Events

Five key events per year bringing together Colab members from across the Hope City Church family. Invaluable networking, inspirational discussion, guest speakers & interactive presentations are just some of the things you can expect to see at these events. We will cover areas of personal effectiveness and development and management and leadership and provide you with a chance to discuss your workplace situation with others in an environment which is faith filled and fully behind you.

Business Colab Clinics

Smaller hang-out evenings or breakfast sessions which are built around areas of interest which are likely to be more centred around the technical aspects of marketplace leadership or entrepreneurship. Some of the regular themes we may look at are business planning, finance, effective marketing strategy, social media for business, starting a new business, HR fundamentals and so on. These will be led by our mentors in informal settings.


Members can connect with one or more of our mentors to discuss ideas, plans, proposals and challenges.  Our mentors are not there to advise you or tell you what to do.  They are there to help you to process your thoughts and make decisions which you can carry through with conviction.

The Benefits

Here are just a few of the reasons you should take a second look at the Business Colab:

Get together with other like-minded people across Hope City Church

Get invaluable input and training from people who have experience and expertise on how to succeed

Connect with one of our mentors who can be a sounding board to develop plans and over come obstacles

Promote what you do so people can let others know what you can offer

Hope City Creative

Anything goes!


From lights, music and media to design and dance we love all things creative – and believe that church should be full of artistic expression purposefully channelled to glorify God.

We love how creativity captures attention, inspires wonder and expresses age old messages to new generations. It’s in the heartbeat of who we are and we are all about bringing that fresh spark to all we do.

We’ve produced albums, TV series, live performances and more and we’re always pushing to do bigger, better and more cutting edge things! Plus you’ll see us in action in all our services, leading worship, setting the scene, snapping the photos. Our Creative teams are a huge part of our worship experience.

Whether you’re a musician, singer, lighting genius, wordsmith or would just like to develop your creative side, even learn a new instrument – then come along to our Creative Nights on Thursdays to get involved!


The Women's Ministry of Hope City


“Strength and dignity are her clothing, and she laughs at the time to come.” Proverbs 31:25

SHE IS is the women’s ministry of Hope City Church. In a world that fixates on body image, sexuality and low self-worth, it’s so important for us as women to realise who God says we are – strong, dignified and unafraid. SHE IS is all about doing every stage of womanhood with power and poise, and under the loving gaze of our Father God.

Whether you are a student or a grandma, a young mum or a single professional, the various expressions of SHE IS will support you, challenge you and bring fun to your world!

Our national women’s conference – SHE IS – runs every February, bringing hundreds of women from all walks of life together to engage with world-renowned speakers and spend time in the presence of God with each other.

SHE IS 2018

We run SHE IS gatherings in all of our Locations throughout the year, giving you an opportunity to build relationships and have fun together with women from your region and your walk of life.

We are also unfolding WE ARE WOMAN as a special gathering for women over the age of 35; the generals in our midst, who have fought hard for their stripes and upon whom rests a unique mantle of wisdom, strength and insight.

Every location has different events and streams for you to get involved in. Choose your location and get in touch for more information about SHE IS there:
