Members Meeting Overview

Published on December 6, 2023

Our Members Meeting on Monday the 27th of November was a wonderful opportunity to gather as a church family. 

We had a time of reflecting on our Strategic Planning for 2024 and our three themes: Foster Unity. Strengthen Impact. Facilitate Engagement.

We heard a report on our recent Family Forums and the initial planning for how this good work of listening and learning may continue in 2024.

We celebrated the 36 people who have become new members of NewHope this year.

We voted to approve the budget for 2024 and an amendment to the constitution for NewHope Medical.

We welcomed Craig Neilson as our new council appointed Finance Director and celebrated God’s provision for this role.

We finished the night with a time of input and stories from across our ministries.

We thank God for his care over our church in 2023 and look forward to the new things He has in store in 2024.

If you are not a member of NewHope and would like to find out more about becoming one and being a part of the decision making for our church, we invite you to reach out to any member of the pastoral team or explore more on our website at
