For I was hungry, and you fed me. I was thirsty and you gave me a drink. I was a stranger and you invited me into your home.
I was naked, and you gave me clothing. I was sick and you cared for me. I was in prison, and you visited me.
Believe in Love
Jesus was clear that the responsibility to care for those on the margins of society was a Kingdom imperative. No single project, church or denomination ‘owns’ social care; the whole People of God have a part to play, and when we stand together we can achieve so much more! Hope Hope is proud to be deeply rooted in the Christian tradition and was birthed in the Anglican Church. That said, we welcome all people of faith (and none) who are are willing to stand with those for whom Christ came in order that they may know ‘Life, and life in all its fullness’ (Jn. 10:10)
Who We Are
WE are simply a small group of people who are seeking to follow in the footsteps of the one who claimed the words of the prophet Isaiah as his own, ‘‘The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he has anointed me to bring good news to the poor. He has sent me to proclaim release to the captives and recovery of sight to the blind, to let the oppressed go free, to proclaim the year of the Lord’s favour.’. To care for the those in need is to move as physically close to Jesus as is earthly possible; we are privileged to be disciples working out our baptismal calling in this simple way.
We would love to come and speak to your church or group about Hope House and how it seeks to live out Kingdom principles amongst those on the margins. Do contact us if you would like to arrange a visit from one of our speaking team.

Pray for us
Prayer is the life-blood of Hope House. Without intercession our work is fruitless and empty. We have no power to transform lives (our own as well as our residents) unless the Lord is with us. Beyond all other support we implore you to stand with us in prayer.
Give to us
Paul encouraged the churches in Macedonia who gave ‘beyond their ability’ to other parts of the body of Christ so that the Lord’s work may be done (2 Cor. 8). These churches were not rich, rather they were poor and in ‘great affliction’ yet the benefit to their cheerful giving was in abundant joy and faith. Can you be a modern-day Macedonian church and stand with us financially?
Serve with us
Compassion is love in action; serving within a sympathetic social project grows discipleship confidence and builds skills that are of benefit to the local church. Encouraging individuals and groups to draw alongside Hope House has a mutual benefit and strengths the whole church’s witness to those most in need.
