God put the world square with himself through the Messiah, giving the world a fresh start. He has given us the task of telling everyone what he is doing. We’re Christ’s Ambassadors.
The Embassy is the youth ministry of Hope Centre. We meet on Friday nights and in crews midweek.
We are passionate about young people encountering the love of Jesus and discovering who they are in Him.
Our focus is to let young people know that God is for us, that He isn’t out to get us when we trip up, but to catch us when we fall, to raise up leaders that positively influence their world and to create a community that encourages, stirs and believes in one another.
Can I come if I am over 18?
Unfortunately, we cannot let anyone stay onsite that is not a leader at The Embassy, endorsed by Hope Centre. This is inadherance with our Child Safety policy.
*In extenuating circumstances, and with prior arrangement, we can assign you a supervisor.
Is my child going to be safe?
Yes! We do everything we can to keep your teenager safe.
As a ministry we understand the responsibility we have to ensure your child has the best time possible inside a safe and relevant environment. All of our leaders have current BlueCards, are interviewed and trained to provide this! Moreover, The Embassy is a drug and alcohol free event.
Anyone using or in possession of any drug or alcohol substance will be sent home immediately.
