In April 2018 500 young people joined us in Bristol to take part in a citywide mission, under the banner of HOPE Bristol! It was an amazing opportunity to serve alongside local churches and organisations and bless the local community and it was so great to see all that God did.
If you would like to find out more about HOPE Bristol, check out the HOPE Bristol website.
HOPE Bristol was a fantastic way to put Jesus’ love into action, demonstrating the good news in our words and actions. Acts of service like this are a key part of our worship, following Jesus’ teaching on loving our neighbours and acting in alignment with God’s heart for his church to meet the needs of the world in any way we can. God worked in our hearts as we served. As we stepped out of our comfort zones, Jesus met with us and encouraged us with conversations, opportunities to pray and to love in his name. Our hope and prayer is that we take what we’ve learned from HOPE Bristol and all bring it back to our cities, towns and villages knowing that mission is a part of who we are and what God has called us to do.
