A Bible believing church that loves Jesus and loves people.

Our desire is that Hope Community Church can be a place for people who don’t go to church or have been away from church for a long time.

Our vision is to bring our hope in Jesus Christ to the people of Helensburgh and beyond and live as a community shaped by the gospel.

We believe that the hope of the gospel of Jesus Christ is exactly what everyone needs. But we’re not about just getting people through the door. We strive to be a vibrant community of mutual love and care and want others to be able to join in that. Anyone, no matter what background or belief, is welcome to join with us and find out more. 

Our beliefs are evangelical and in the Reformed tradition. We’re part of the Free Church of Scotland, a denomination with a vision of seeing a healthy gospel church for every community in Scotland.
