About Hope

Hope Community Church has been serving the Hanover area since 1967. From the little church on the hill to our current location, Hope has focused on being a part of our community, not just in it. We have seen God open doors and move mountains during our church build. Today, we are located at 373 18th Ave just north of John Diefenbaker Senior School (JDSS).

Our heart is to come together as imperfect people who connect and serve a perfect God. We strive to build relationships with each other and in our community. We believe that God has called us to serve those around us. At Hope, that extends from Hanover to West Grey and into the world through missions.

We would love to meet you! Join us on a Sunday at 10:30 a.m. or during our weekly activities and bible studies.

We come together to sing praises to our King. That may look like lifting hands, bowing, laughing, or crying; it may look different for everyone. Worship is a response to what we value the most: the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. Here at Hope, we enjoy contemporary and older worship songs as long as they bring glory to God.

We have several small groups, ministries and opportunities for you to get connected. For a complete list of Hope's happenings, please visit our Connect Page. If you want to volunteer at a specific event, please use our contact form
