About Hope Chapel

Hope Chapel is a community of people of varied ages and ethnicities who love life and exist to bring the hope of Jesus to our city.

Our church was previously known as C3 Church Hamilton and was started 20 years ago by Steve and Gail Hirst. Hope Chapel is a Christian church and is part of the C3 Church Global movement led by Phil and Christine Pringle.

Check out this short video from the launch of our Hope Chapel name launch, with Pastor Joel sharing his heart for our church and vision for the future.

Meet Our Pastors

Meet our Senior Pastors Joel and Sarah Fryett, along with their three children Aaliyah-Rose, Hugo, and Asher. With over 13 years of ministry experience across three countries, Joel and Sarah moved from their hometown of Tauranga to our church in 2015.

They are passionate about seeing the local church thrive, grow and be an influence of hope in the community.
