Who Are We?

Hope Presbyterian (Hornby, West Melton, Halkett and Rolleston), is a prayerful, vibrant, growing, community-serving church. The context for our mission and ministry is a city that is rebuilding after a series of devastating earthquakes, a city that needs to be transformed, a city searching for hope in the midst of brokenness. We believe that Jesus is the hope of our city.


Our Mission

To worship God and follow Christ, transforming our world by the power of the Spirit.


Our Vision

To build hope in a broken world.


Our Values

These are the expressions of life and character that we want to preserve and encourage as we seek to realise our Vision:

– Biblical authority is central.
– Prayer is the basis of all our life.
– We are outward-focused, reaching people for Christ, serving our community and caring for creation.
– Authenticity and integrity.
– Supportive of people to find their purpose in life.
