New Here?

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!


To begin discovering if Living Hope might be for you, feel free to watch the welcome video from our Senior Pastor, Shawn Brix.




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!


worshipWorship Service Time, Location, and Parking: Each Sunday we gather for worship at 10:30 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:young_greeter If it’s your first time here, you may want to arrive by 10:20 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!

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.
