Focus: Admin & Communication with the congregation

Lena and her family began worshipping at New Hope several years ago after planting roots in the east end. When her children began attending the neighbourhood school, she and her husband decided they wanted to participate in a neighbourhood church and found a warm community in New Hope; a group of individuals connected through faith and willing to be genuine, vulnerable and compassionate with one another.


Mark VanderherbergMark:

Mark stumbled upon New Hope one beautiful Spring day four years ago as he was shopping for a bike at New Hope Community Bikes. He is a very dedicated and committed husband, father and friend. Mark is self-employed and loves working with his hands. He is excited to serve and give back to his community after having experienced such love and support from his community through a difficult year. Mark lives in the east end of Hamilton with his wife and twin daughters.


Speaking Team

leadership-team-new-hope-churchEvery week a different member of this team helps us to think through what it means to be “New Hope for East Hamilton.” We draw on the Bible (God’s written word) and the work of the Holy Spirit in our lives to learn about what it means to follow Jesus in our world.


Worship Planning Team

We organize service worship Sundays, operate the PowerPoint, make sure the sound is working, sing, play guitar, drums, violin, piano, recorder...we make everything happen on a Sunday morning.
