‘On earth there is no power, there is no depth or height
that could ever separate us from the love of God in Christ.
Immanuel – our God is with us.’
Michael Card

WORSHIP AND COMMUNITY COLLABORATION are fundamental to our mission, as we seek to live out and share the limitless love and assurance of Jesus Christ.

Located on Hope Farm Road (and formerly known as Whitby Methodist Church), the contemporary building is fully accessible, with on-site parking. The central worship space is welcoming and open, furnished with comfortable seating, and using digital presentation for worship/ (hymn books are available for those who request them). All this offers flexibility for differing formats of worship, as well as meetings and events.

The church is regularly open at 10.30am for worship on most Sundays; on the fourth Sunday the mrning service rotates around Hope Farm and our partner Methodist churches in Ellesmere Port (Trinity Ellesmere Port and Little Sutton).  (7.00pm for New Song Café). Weekday worship and activities through the week can be viewed by clicking the tabs above. You can view the preaching plan at the foot of this page for more details. Hope Farm is also where The Hope Journey began – a growing educational ministry to schools throughout Wirral and further afield. We also have function spaces available for hire.

Families and individuals of all ages are welcomed to join us in engaging with and celebrating God’s purpose for our lives and in service to others, including Christian services of baptism, marriage and funerals (please contact the Minister through the email below).

‘There is a hope that burns within my heart,
That gives me strength for every passing day;
A glimpse of glory now revealed in meagre part,
Yet drives all doubt away.
I stand in Christ, with sins forgiven;
And Christ in me, the hope of heaven!
My highest calling and my deepest joy,
to make His will my home.’

Stuart Townend / Mark Edwards
