Hope Groups

WHAT ARE HOPE GROUPS

Hope Groups are small groups offering friendship and care to each other; an opportunity to give and receive support.
Many people are struggling in their own ways, whether it be feeling down for a few hours, completely isolated on their own, or simply trying to work out how to be at a time when everything feels out of control.
Hope Groups are voluntary small groups where you can connect as families or individuals with a few others just with the aim of supporting each other and encouraging each other.
It is entirely voluntary and sits alongside existing pastoral care and the different church groups.
