Hope City Newcastle


Welcome to Hope City Newcastle

We are a church with a heart for the people of Newcastle.

The Toon, renowned for it’s lively party scene and passionate football following, is also home to our vibrant, exciting and dynamic church. Packed full of everyone: families, students, teens, young adults – you’re bound to feel right at home!

Get Involved

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.


Our Teams make the vision of Hope City come alive and facilitate our longing to be a church that’s taking ground and growing together.

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. Let’s be the church: you are the light of the world!
