Hey! Thanks for checking us out.
We know it can be a little intimidating to visit a church for the first time. Let’s make this as stress-free as possible.
Where to Go
Currently, we hold our services in the Rolleston School Hall, 11 Tennyson Street. There is a parking lot accessible off Kidman street (look for the Hope flag) or you may park on either Tennyson or Kidman streets.
During the week you can find us at our temporary office at 569 Springston-Rolleston Road, where, in the not so distant future, we will begin construction on our new church building. You can find out more about our building plans by checking out the “Building Hope” tab on the Home page.
What To Expect
- Casual dress is okay! Some people put on their “Sunday Best” and others feel more comfortable (and cooler in the summer months) wearing shorts and jandals.
- Morning tea is kind of our thing–we like it so much, we do it twice! Join us at 9:45 for a cuppa and a variety of baking or biscuits before the 10:00 service begins, then come back for seconds afterwards.
- Services generally last about an hour and a half. We have a crèche available for those 5 years old and under located behind the stage. Our school-aged children leave about 10:20 for their programmes which take place in the St. John building just adjacent to the school (for years 1 to 6) or in a room next to the hall for intermediates.
