Connect in Homes.
Be part of the in-person experience at 3 Springfield Rd, Blackburn North. Due to the current COVID-19 gathering restrictions there are two things you must do before attending:
1. Register Online
We must limit the number of individuals in our building at any time. This limit is set by the DHHS. In order to make sure we don’t exceed this limit, everyone attending church in person must register beforehand.
Registrations for each service are made available 7 days before the service. We do not have a waiting list so please be respectful of others who also want to attend.
Once you arrive at church, you must check-in using the Church Online platform. You can do this in one of two ways:
- Via the Church Centre App on your smart phone
- In person with a member of the connect team
We strongly encourage everyone to download the Church Centre app before attending church to allow them to check in quickly and safely.

Worship Online Together.
We can’t always meet together in one place, but wherever we do meet we know Jesus will be with us. Our online worship services are designed to be watched together, either in small groups or by yourself.
If you’d like to be in the service, we are looking for people to record the bible reading at home. If you’re interested, please register your name here.
During our online services, our Online Hosting team will be available to chat with you to answer your questions, connect you with other ministries at NewHope and pray with you. To participate in the online chat, you need to have a YouTube or Google account.
If you would like to speak with someone outside of the service times, please contact the church office.
We want to pray with you.
We would love to pray with you during NewHope Worship Online. As you are watching, grab your phone and text the number on screen (top left) and a member of the Prayer Team will contact you.
Connect in Homes.
Invite people to join you in your home to experience NewHope Worship Online together.
It’s a great way to build community, connect and grow in faith together while watching NewHope Online Worship.
We will be publishing a service handout for each Sunday that will provide all the information you need to engage in the service, including some conversation questions you might like to talk about in your gathering.
These gatherings must adhere to the latest government guidelines. As of 23 November, this means:
- Up to 15 visitors, including dependants, per day can visit a household, including dependents. This limit doesn’t include infants under 12 months. Face masks recommended when physical distancing cannot be maintained. Keeping a record of visitors is advised.
