“We see our role as the church leadership team to continually seek God on the on-going direction of the church. Our passion is to build up the church and empower those around us to become devoted Christ followers and servants to a world in need.”
What to Expect
Fresh Hope Armidale is a church for the community and of the community and so reflects much of the culture of its surrounds. You will find that, as with the rest of Armidale, people are warm and welcoming and, like you, enjoy the casual laid back environment of the area. People will be dressed casually. Our goal is to make visitors feel welcome, so don’t be surprised if you are not only greeted, but people talk to you. At no stage will we single you out or embarrass you as being our guest. You may wish to connect with one of the elders after the service to answer any questions you may have.
Our Sunday services last for no more than 90 minutes. Our music team will play a few contemporary worship songs during the service and the words will be on the media screens so feel free to sing or read along and enjoy the music. There will also be times of prayer, the taking of communion, an offering (which guests are in no way obligated to participate in), and a short life-relevant Bible message. Church continues after the service as people catch up with one another over morning tea and occasionally lunch.
