About Us

The hope of Jesus in every home

Who are we?

At Hope Anglican Church we want to help each other grow to be more like Jesus. We believe Jesus is at the centre of God’s plans for the world, and so we are a church that centres itself on Jesus. As an Anglican church, we are part of the Sydney Anglican Diocese.

Who comes to Hope Church?

People from all ages and stages of life come to Hope Church and call it home. Most of our people come from across the south-west. As Sydney’s new south-west continues to grow, we hope we will too. So whether you’ve known Jesus your whole life or are getting to know Him for the first time, you’re welcome to join us. For everyone, from the youngest to the oldest, Hope Church is a great place to be.

Evan Oei

student minister

Evan was born in Indonesia and has largely spent his whole life in the lower North Shore of Sydney. He used to be an exercise physiologist but wanted to have more time to help people know Jesus after God had convinced him that living under Jesus’ lordship is the best way to live. In his spare time, Evan loves being active whether its playing ultimate frisbee, basketball, cycling or enjoying a hard-earned coffee after a park run.

Helen Xing

student minister

Helen started following Jesus for herself in late primary school. She is married to Nate and they will be studying at Bible College together. On a day off she enjoys swimming and taking photos of friends and family.

Nate Xing

student minister

Nate loves to share the good things of life with others, and most of all he loves to share about Jesus. He is married to Helen and they are studying at Bible College together. Nate is always down for a coffee and a chat, and when he’s not doing that, he’s probably tinkering away on his guitars.
