Here’s how working under the HOPE banner has helped churches in Coventry.
The Bishop of Coventry says, ‘Local authorities and other charities turn to us and see we are a source of help.’
See below what churches in Eastbourne are doing this year as part of HOPE 2018.
Watch this video below from HOPE Bristol where 1400 volunteers worked together over a week at Easter 2018 in 25 communities, with 170 community projects, 25 events and 15 family fun days. At least 20 people became Christians as a result.
To make HOPE happen to the max in the UK we need people with enthusiasm and commitment. Some areas employ someone like Chris Edwards in Coventry to coordinate ongoing activities. In Bristol, Sam Cook is employed as Mission Coordinator, which a specific brief to organise HOPE Bristol’s mission week. Other HOPE practitioners are working on a voluntary basis like Martyn Relf, who chairs Churches Together for Eastbourne and HOPE Eastbourne. The key qualification is to be passionate about seeing churches work together to make Jesus known.
