In a Nutshell:
HOPE models what mission could look like. It works with Christians of all ages, ethnicities, worship styles, genders and theological perspectives. This lines up with Jesus’ prayer that his followers would be ‘brought to complete unity’ so that the world will know about God and his love for humanity (John 17:23).
How it came to be:
The dream of HOPE began in 2006 when 3 friends Roy Crowne, Mike Pilavachi and Andy Hawthorne asked themselves a question: -
"What would it be like if churches all over the country worked together, serving their communities, sharing faith in word and action? The whole Church reaching the whole nation through a whole year of mission."

A Rhythm of Mission:(read more...)
Groups of local churches are encouraged to use this rhythm of mission in ways that are appropriate for their area to bless their local community, living out God’s love, making Jesus known in words and action, and doing it all in unity with other Christians.
