New to Hope?

Hope Church is a vibrant, contemporary multicultural church. We believe church should be a fun, inspiring and life transforming experience.

Our worship style is contemporary and uplifting. Our messages are engaging and easy to follow. Except occasionally when our senior pastor has to prove he did get a Masters in Theology.

Dressing is casual though we understand perfectly if you wish to dress up for Sunday.

We are well-known for our genuine friendliness that overflows from loving and accepting hearts. In fact, we enjoy each other’s company so much we hang around after the worship service over some refreshments. Indeed, our Willawong and St. Lucia morning congregations normally have a feast. Well, more like a relaxed lunch. As our guest, you are most welcomed to join our meal times together for a better opportunity to get to know us. No charge and no obligations.

We hope to be a channel for God’s blessing to you. To find out more about us, use the menu links “About Us”.


If you are considering visiting Hope Church to find out more about the Christian life and the claims of Jesus, you will meet genuine people with a genuine experience of a relationship with God. We have come from all walks of life and a wide spectrum of cultures. We are certain to share things in common. Though there is one thing that has made a difference in our lives. Knowing God.

You are most welcomed to visit us and experience our warmth and hospitality. We are located in the suburbs of St. Lucia (inner west Brisbane) and Willawong (southern Brisbane), Gold Coast and Ipswich. You may just make new friends and perhaps come closer to experiencing God. And we will surely be enriched by your company.

We do provide engaging programs for children in our Willawong, St. Lucia morning and Gold Coast services. So do bring along your little ones.


Hope Church is a worshipful church that enjoys experiencing the presence of God. We like to think that we nurture an atmosphere that helps worshippers touch heaven and draw closer to God.

We believe that the supernatural power of God is available today. Our aim is to be a channel to connect heaven unto earth through the power of the Spirit of God. Indeed, we have seen some amazing things.

Our messages are contemporary, engaging and even, dare we say it, sometimes humorous. Yet it draws deeply from the Bible through sound exposition.

We have engaging and faith building programs for young children, youth, adults and families. Laying the foundations for lifelong discipleship. For our heart is to build fully-developed disciples of Christ, empower workers and strengthen families.

Hope Church is a missional church that seeks to live our God’s mission, that we may offer God’s hope to those lost without true hope or purpose. A place of healing for the wounded and for the weary.

Do come and visit us. We can be found in St. Lucia (inner west Brisbane) and Willawong (southern Brisbane), Gold Coast and Ipswich.
