A NETWORK OF DISCIPLES sharing HOPE IN A PANDEMIC

CONTAGIOUS HOPE GROUPS

The world has been shaken and we have a unique opportunity to bring hope, help and healing to our wider community, as apprentices of Jesus.

Our vision is to train 500 Christians to start 100 online Hope Groups in the next few months, to create a wave of hope across our nation “for such a time as this” (Esther 4:14). 

Will you be trained and start a group?

WHAT IS A HOPE GROUP?

A Hope Group is an online forum of 3-4 people (maximum) who meet for just over an hour each week, to encourage and support each other. 

These groups are not bible studies, and the aim is not to give the ‘right’ answers. We use a simple structure to help you practice thankfulness, share from the heart, and encourage one another using the teachings of Jesus. 

1. What are you thankful for?
2. What has been a challenge this week?
3. Read and re-tell a scripture of hope, to inspire deep thinking and heart-felt conversation.
4. What is one practical thing that I can do to bring hope and help to a friend this week?
5. Pray

Even through we read and reflect on scripture, these groups are not just for religious people. They exist to help anyone who is isolated, afraid, or in need of spiritual community. As we read in 2 Cor 1:2-4: “God is our merciful Father and the source of all comfort. He comforts us in all our troubles so that we can comfort others.”

How do I get started?
