We serve the communities of
Port Macquarie, Lake Cathie and North Haven.

We aim to physically, emotionally, and spiritually, elevate the lives of local people who need hope through our welfare services and programs and indirectly partnering with
non-profits, government organisations, and other
church organisations.


We are building a great family church
in Port Macquarie.

Through our relationships,
we offer fresh opportunities to enjoy
the fullness, freedom, and forgiveness of Jesus.

We’d love to see you at our Sunday service!


Mark and Cher are the Leaders of The Hope Community and have led here since 1997. They are community-focused and engaged with Port Macquarie and the region in multiple and significant ways. Their leadership and hospitality have seen The Hope Community flourish and continue to grow.

We’ve been working in our community from 1985, firstly as a faith community and then branching out in 1997, to work in and with Port Macquarie and our surrounding local communities.

Hope Shop, a well-known not-for-profit charity, with a team of 160 volunteers and referrals coming from over 15 local welfare organisations, began on the 5th of August 2009.

In 2020, The Hope Community has been born of the synergy of Honour Church and Hope Shop to take hope into the future, continuing to make a difference in the lives of the individuals in our community.

Town green people
