Welcome to Hope City Church in London

We are a Christian church with campuses in Shoreditch and Balham and a heart for the people of our nation’s capital, London.

Hope City London is an exciting, fresh, creative expression of God’s church. We meet every Sunday at 11am at our Shoreditch campus and at 5pm at our Balham campus.

Packed full of families, students, young professionals and everyone else – we aim to connect each and every person to the life changing message of Jesus Christ through the power of God’s community, His Church. Everyone is welcome!

Dinner Parties

Our Dinner Parties happen fortnightly on Wednesday nights. They are an opportunity for us to come together for food, friendship and a chance to discuss the message from the weekend and pray together. Click to find out more!

Grow Nights

Our Grow Nights include six practical and inspiring courses designed to grow and strengthen your faith and see you planted in church life. Each of the courses will be happening simultaneously each month, so you can map your way through them.

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.

Let's Go Party

We have freed up one Wednesday each month to give you a chance to get out and party with your neighbours, friends, workmates, college mates and anyone else who could do with your friendship and you theirs!
