Summer at NewHope

No In-person Gatherings – 27 Dec, 3 Jan, 10 Jan

After Christmas we will take a three week break from in-person gatherings. NewHope Online Worship will continue as usual at 10am. The first in-person gathering of 2021 will be 17 Jan at 10am.

It has been a huge year and most of our team have only been able to take short breaks since our first (unplanned) online worship service in March 2020. All of our programs moved online in those early days and the weekly demands have been significant.

In-person gatherings have significant added challenges with COVID-safe set-up, sign-in, and clean-up obligations. If you are able to assist it would be appreciated.

We know that many of our members and supporters will be travelling in January, reconnecting with family and refreshing for a new year. We will be praying for you all.

As we prepare for the challenges and uncertainties of 2021 we invite your prayers and encourage your participation at NewHope. Thank you for your support and understanding.

In-Person Gatherings from 17 Jan
