Where do I send my kid for childcare?

After you enter the church, you will see the Hope Kids registration desk on your left. Simply sign your child in to get a nametag, and our team will show where you can drop off and pick up your child.

How long is the gathering?

Each gathering is expected to last 1 hour long. We encourage you to hang around after the gathering to enjoy some refreshments in the lobby and to meet new friends. We love to meet new people!

What should I wear?

You can wear whatever you're most comfortable in! Some people like to wear their Christmas best, but others prefer to come in comfortable, casual clothes. You'll blend right in either way!

Do I have to bring a Bible or anything else?

No need! We have Bibles in the pockets in front of your seat. Just come with an open heart and mind, ready to meet new friends and hear of the story of Christmas!

What should I do when I get there?

You'll be greeted by our friendly team, then you can proceed straight to the Worship Centre which is located right at the entrance.
