We’re so excited that around 500 young people joined us from Tuesday 3rd – Saturday 7th April to take part in a citywide mission in Bristol, under the banner of HOPE Bristol! This 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.

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. What we know from previous missional events in Manchester and London is that, as we go, God does something amazing in our hearts. It’s as we step out that we become more like Jesus, passionate about caring for those in need. Our hope and prayer is that we go 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.
