This Hope exists for relationship. We firmly believe that we were created for relationship; relationship with God and with one another.


All that we are about then, is relational, trying to help create communities that love and serve, that take time for one another, that value one another for who they are. Jesus lived and spoke about a peaceable Kingdom where humanity learned how to be peacemakers. In small and often insignificant ways, we hope to be a community of relational peacemakers.


If you're looking for a church, then This Hope is unlikely to be like anything you are used to. There is no 'Sunday service'. What we encourage is people gathering together, community, whenever, wherever, that aims to provide support, unconditional love, pastoral and spiritual care.


We believe Jesus welcomes all. We welcome all. Join us, get involved, help shape us according to the person God is creating you to be.



'Concepts create idols; only wonder comprehends anything. People kill one another over idols. Wonder makes us fall to our knees.'
