Please note that our Kids Church workers are all fully vaccinated and we are continuing to implement updated COVIDSafe protocols. Our online worship will continue. We respect the decisions of each person as we negotiate different vulnerabilities and challenges in our families and various networks. We continue to pray for and support one another.

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.

 

Online Chat.

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.
