During the pandemic, rather than gathering in person, we are live streaming the service online - click on link below
Our main gathering as a whole church begins with breakfast at 10am on a Sunday morning. We then have a worship service from 10.30 until about 12 noon. These are times of sung worship, teaching and encouragement and to connect as a larger community. We have various groups for children and youth in Hope Chapel and in some of the nearby buildings. We encourage everyone who calls Hope their church to join one Sunday team once a month. These include hospitality, welcoming, worship, PA, children & youth and are a good starting point for becoming part of the community.

Hope Chapel – 10.30
We’ve always dreamed that Hope will be a church that children love, and that seems to be a dream come true! Various groups for different ages meet in the second half of the service on a Sunday morning. All children are welcome to be part of these fun times of exploring and worshipping Jesus.

During the pandemic, unfortunately the Prayer Centre is not available for in person use.
The Prayer Centre is based in Hope Chapel, Hotwells, Bristol. It is a place dedicated to the worship of Jesus Christ and prayer in His name. Since its opening in 2003, the vision of the Prayer Centre has been to be a place where the people feel welcome to spend time in the presence of God. Within the Prayer Centre there is space for larger gatherings in the main prayer room, as well as prayer huts for individuals and small groups. There is a kitchen and bathroom on site.

The teaching within the Living Free course has had a massive affect on us at Hope and many friends from other churches around the UK. It shapes our culture and we highly recommend that everyone join a Living Free course. We run at least one course a year which includes ‘Original Design’ and ‘Freedom Prayer.’ Many people who have done the course have found it to be transformational.
Continuing to open during the pandemic on Wednesdays 10:00 - 12:00

During the pandemic this group is still gathering every Wednesday in the Prayer Centre - just without the lunch first. You can join via Zoom if you prefer.
"Hope On Wednesday" meets on a Wednesday afternoon beginning with lunch. We are a group of friends growing together in Jesus on a journey of recovery from substance abuse, mental ill health or other life crises. By building friendship and sharing stories we learn to understand where each person had come, creating unity and understanding.
