New Here?

Welcome to Living Hope!

We have resumed in person worship services, Sunday Morning at 10 am. Please pre register your attendance by Friday at 12 pm. Pre register here.


There is currently no in person Children’s programming or mid week office hours. Online Sunday School and Online Worship Services can be viewed here.




Church and Fellowship in a time of isolation. This is a challenging time for churches to try to figure out how best to serve not only their regular attenders, but how to reach out to the community around them. As we move to an online structure, that human element is still needed. Please check out our various virtual services shown at the top of the website. However, if you require prayer or need to talk to someone, we are still here for you. Whether or not you have ever visited us in person, we want to support you during this time. If you have any prayer requests, we have a dedicated group of people who are committed to pray over these concerns. If you would like a phone call by one of our elders, or if you would like to be included in any of our regular emails, we can help. Please email our office using the contact us page, or by emailing and let us know how we can help.


If you’re new to Living Hope or to our web-site, welcome! New people visit Living Hope all the time. Some stay for a while and then move on but many make Living Hope their family! Currently at Living Hope we are without a Lead Pastor. We are blessed to have a number of speakers from within Living Hope, the community and the surrounding area, that will be leading us each Sunday.

SOMETHING FOR EVERYONE: Whether you’re looking for the opportunity to worship, to grow in your understanding of God and the Bible, or simply to meet some new people, Living Hope has something for you! As you explore our website, you’ll find lots of reasons to check us out!


Worship Service Time, Location, and Parking: Each Sunday we gather for worship at 10:00 a.m. We’re located on the far east end of Lansdowne Street in the city of Peterborough, right between the OPP building and the Peterborough Humane Society shelter. Click here for a map. There are several parking spots reserved for guests, or you can park anywhere in our front or rear parking lots. Whichever door you enter, you’ll find people who can direct you once you’re in the facility.



Your First Visit: If it’s your first time here, you may want to arrive by 9:50 so that you have time to visit our “Welcome Booth,” ask any questions you might have, and orient yourself to our facility. If you have children, you may want to arrive even a few minutes earlier so that you have time to check your child into our well-staffed nursery or learn where your children’s classrooms are. Our greeters at each door and many others will be happy to help you any way they can!



Child Care and Programs: Sign in happens in the lobby before the service. All children begin the service with their families (minus the nursery babes – although they can join their families, too!). There is an infant nursery for newborns and a toddler nursery for those aged 18 months to 2 years. Upon dismissal, all children go to The Point for Large Group, followed by small group activities in their classroom. Pick up takes place at their small group classroom at 12:00.

Small Group Classrooms (Where you pick up your kids) You’ll find signage both on, and above the classroom doors.

  • Preschool (age 3,JK, SK)
  • Gr.1/2

  • Grades 5-6 are excused every other week for “High Voltage.”

Dress Comfortably: Feel free to dress casually as you join us for worship. We want you to be comfortable and to feel at home as you visit with us! You’ll find the music engaging, the message relevant, and the people friendly! We strive to be scent free; if you have a allergies, know that we are trying to create a comfortable environment for everyone.


You’ll find our staff offices located just inside the front entrance under the portico. Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday each week, someone is available to serve you from 9:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. You’ll be welcomed by our Office Administrator: Emeline Schmidt, or one of our other staff members.
