Hope Centre is a strong, passionate, pentecostal church. As a multi-cultural and multi-generational church we encourage joy, freedom and creativity of expression in worship. Our meetings are friendly and upbeat with a tangible sense of the presence of God.
Since its beginnings in 1932, Hope Centre has become a widely respected influence for good in the Wellington region, around New Zealand, and increasingly overseas.
Hope Centre has a long and wonderful history. But even more than that, we are excited about the future, one that we would love you to come and be a part of. There is a place for you here. Welcome to your place!
Every culture. We are a multi-ethnic church.
Every generation. Raising up & ministering to every generation.
Experiencing God. Experiencing the life-changing love of God.
Touching the world. Reaching our city, nation & nations.
With the message of faith, revival, healing & the return of Jesus.
Our core values are shaped from the example of the church in the bible. As a local church this looks like:
