Many questions get asked by visitors to church, newcomers to town, and friends and neighbours of our members. Here’s a list of questions that may help you get to know Hope Presbyterian Hornby a bit better.


What time are your church services?

We gather every Sunday morning at 9am and 11am. We also have an evening service for Young Adults at 7pm. Full details of all our services can be found here.


What can I expect?

From the moment you arrive you’ll be greeted by people who are happy to see you! Sunday services are designed to be enjoyed, and not endured, offering Bible-based messages that are engaging and relevant to people today. It’s a casual and friendly environment where everyone is welcome, and everyone can belong.

Our gatherings generally begin with a time of sung worship, followed by a message, and ending with a time of responding to God, where you can worship a little more, receive prayer, pray for others, or simply stand back and observe.


Can I watch online?

Yes. During COVID-19 while we are limited to 100 people per service, our services are streamed live every Sunday at 9am on YouTube. You are welcome to watch live, or at a later time that suits you and your family.


What’s the music like?

We enjoy live music as part of our worship to God. Our services have a mixture of modern, vibrant music, as well as traditional hymns. Check out our YouTube playlist for a range of songs we love.


What denomination are you?

We are a Presbyterian Church and member of the Presbyterian Church of Aotearoa New Zealand (PCANZ). You can read our Statement of Faith here.
