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 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.

Our Vision For You

Dinner Parties

Our Dinner Parties are on Wednesday nights. They are for all ages and for whatever life group you represent. Join for great food and topical discussions whilst making new friends! All are welcome.

Dream Teams

Dream Teams are exactly what they say on the tin – teams that help the dream of Hope City becoming a fast growing church full of people, connecting to both God and each other.

Growth Track

We want to help you build a firm foundation in your faith and to discover more of who God’s called you to be. We’ve created opportunities for you to discover being part of God’s family and to grow within the community right here in KL!


Whizz Kids

Our Whizz Kids aged 2 to 10 have a fun session planned just for them every Sunday during the main service! With singing time, games and an engaging message about Jesus, all run by our amazing Whizz Kids Team – join the party!

Neon Youth

Our Neon Youth ministry is for all 11-18s, called to empower and equip the younger generation to grow in God! A Neon Youth programme will happen in our 11am service every Sunday. It’s a place to build healthy friendships, find out about Jesus and have fun every week!

Young Adults

Calling all men. Our men’s ministry is a collective of Men who are endeavouring to go deeper in God as they seek to lead homes, businesses and their futures to reach the city of Kuala Lumpur with the gospel of Jesus. Breakfasts, workouts, bible studies and retreats is how they do it.

She Is

The women’s ministry of Hope City Church has events running throughout the year for every woman in the life of the church.
