How does a church run without paid staff?

The leadership team at Hope consists of our Elders, Deacons, and a few other teams as well!

The Elders are overseers, pastors, and the spiritual leaders of our Church. 

The Deacons are responsible for the practical tasks of running our organisation and looking after our building etc.

We also have a music team, a teaching team, a care team, and sunday school and youth leaders.

By allowing each member to use their God-given gifts, the church is enriched and many more people can be blessed than would be possible with only a few paid staff. 

Why is Hope the way it is?
Paul Scott

In 2018, Paul (one of our Elders) spoke on 'Why Hope is the way it is.' This may be helpful for you to understand our church better.
