Hope Church is overseen by a leadership team of Elders who carry the responsibility for the doctrine, pastoring, & direction of the church. You can chat to any elder about church matters but in recognition of gifting we have different areas of interest. From left to right: Danny - Operations, Ewan - Prayer & Prophecy, Chris - Vision & Evangelism, Mike - leads the team, Johnny - Pastoral.
Team Leaders head up each of our different teams and carry significant practical responsibility. Contact us if you need to get in touch with a Team Leader.
Mike works full time as our Pastor and leads the Elders Team. He is married to Suzanne [below] and together they have a passion to see church be all that it can be.
Suzanne is our Sunday Gatherings Pastor who coordinates our worship gatherings. She works part time with us and is actively involved in pastoral care with families & helps lead ministries like Hope Women & Thrive.
Brian is our Groups Pastor. He is part time with us and is very passionate about discipleship. He oversees our Life Mission Groups & helps lead us with different aspects of discipleship as a church.

A team of Trustees oversee the financial & legal side of Hope Church as a charitable organisation.
ACCOUNTABILITY & PARTNERSHIP
We so value our partnership within the Newfrontiers family and are very blessed to be part of
