Hope Church Guildford
Guildford Surrey


Who we are

We are a Christian Church that believes in God: Father, Son and Holy Spirit.

We've been serving the town of Guildford and beyond, since 2006. In May 2020, we changed our name from Centrepoint Church to Hope Church. We decided to change our name to emphasise who we are. God sent his son to the earth for you. Jesus died for you. Having ascended to heaven, he sent his Holy Spirit to reveal himself to you and established his Church to bring his hope throughout the world.

There is great hope to be found in God, and we are here to reflect that hope in Guildford

As a vibrant and diverse group of people, we bring that hope to you by BUILDING, REACHING and SERVING our community.


We prioritise relationships because we believe we have been created for them. Hope Church is full of people of different ages, stages and backgrounds. Everyone is welcome, including you. We build community each and every day of the week through various groups designed to help you feel connected.


Jesus reached out to care for everyone he came into contact with by sharing God's love with them. We help people know God's love through our interactions, and by providing courses which help people know more about Him.


As a Church, we are keen to serve our community well. Hope Works are the initiatives in our community that we actively support. We do this through volunteering and providing much needed financial support so that these great works continue to bring much-needed hope.

What to expect

When we meet together, you can expect vibrant and engaging singing as well as relevant and accessible bible teaching. With safe and stimulating kids groups for all ages, we are confident you will feel welcome.
