A church isn’t a building—it’s the people. We meet in Varsity Lakes on the Gold Coast of Australia and globally online. No matter where you join us, we think you’ll find friendly people who are excited to get to know you!
Wherever you are in life, you matter and you have a purpose. We want to help you become the person God has created you to be. Your journey has a next step and we’ll help you find it. It could start with serving, finding God’s vision for your life, giving or joining us regularly.
You don’t have to take the next step alone. With a strong community of friends, you can laugh, grow, and serve with people who genuinely care about you. Find a connect group, to join you on your journey.
Strong families start with solid foundations. That’s why we partner with parents to help raise the Hope4Kids to become followers of Christ. Your children and teens have opportunities throughout the week to grow relationships with each other and with God.
Our community and world
We are passionate about serving the global community and demonstrating God’s love to others. Whether in person or online, individually or in groups, within our church and around the world, we are focused on supporting and engaging in relationships that provide relief and restoration to a hurting world.

What should I wear?
We want you to be comfortable so dress however you want! We have a wide range of styles and tastes represented at our church. Some wear jeans and a t-shirt, others wear a suit or a dress. We are an international church with people from many nations.
What kind of music do you sing?
We sing a variety of songs that are best describe as “contemporary” worship. We have a full band with guitars, drums and piano. We sing songs that encourage us to worship God freely and passionately that are deep in meaning, but easy to understand.
How long are the services?
Our Services start at 10am and end at 11:30am—just in time to beat the lunch rush! We have a 5pm service on the last Sunday of each month.
What about my kids?
We love kids at Hope! We have a wonderful team of workers who teach Kids Church each week. Safety is essential for us. All of our volunteers who work with minors have passed a background check. We also have a check-in and check-out procedure to make sure that kids are properly accounted for.
Will I be asked to give money?
If it’s your first time, we consider you a guest and we don’t expect you to give. If you decide to make Hope your church home, we believe that giving to God and the church is the Biblical thing to do as a part of the family.
What is the overall atmosphere like?
We are a friendly church with a laid back atmosphere. You can help yourself to coffee in lounge after the service and meet new people.
