Being grateful for the little things
Dear {recipient.first_name}

What the pandemic has taught me

“Rejoice Always, pray continually and give thanks in all circumstances; for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus.”  I Thessalonians 5:16-18

As we start on the road out of lockdown, I’m so excited about the small things – like being able to sit down outside with a hot drink. I don’t want to take these small things for granted and I want to say THANK YOU to God for each and every freedom we get back and not forget this experience.
Here at HOPE you’ll read in e-news that we’re grateful for our two new amazing patrons, our magazine that is out now and a new booklet to invite people to come on The Wellbeing Journey.

What are you grateful for today?

Hope for your community

The new Hope for All magazine is out now and finding its way to communities, spreading hope through real life stories. This undated magazine is a brilliant gift from your church for Easter and beyond. Give it away with details of your online and in-person church events. Use it to start a conversation with friends and family. This fantastic read is just 10p a copy. Preview this issue and read the stories at

HOPE has been working with futurologist Patrick Dixon, who is urging churches to take steps to ensure that we have contact details for the anonymous guests who have watched our online services during the past year. Churches have been amazing at getting online; 23% of adults in England are still connected to us online – we need urgently to get contact details for those people who have joined us anonymously and could disappear once lockdown lifts in April. Patrick is on Talking Hope this month explaining all. For ‘how to’ highlights visit the HOPE Together site.


Hello Archbishop Justin and Pastor Agu!

We are excited to announce our new Patrons Archbishop Justin Welby and Pastor Agu Irukwu.

Most Revd and Rt Hon Justin Welby, Archbishop of Canterbury, said, ‘When I became Archbishop my priorities were prayer, evangelism and reconciliation. I am pleased to be a patron of an organisation that is so closely aligned with these values.’
Pastor Agu Irukwu, UK leader of the Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG), said, ‘I share HOPE’s passion to make Jesus known through the local church, with churches working together to pray for and bless their communities. My hope and prayer is that, together, we will see revival in our lifetime.’

Talk about a refresh

Our new style format Talking Hope is arriving next Monday on YouTube. We took notes and many of you are totally zoomed out so, following Covid tests and due diligence, we’ve brought the show to the studio for a change of scenery! Yemi, Rachel, Roy and Dan will be our hosts of the shorter format delving into fascinating topics and great interviews to give us fresh wind in the areas of faith, evangelism and mission across denominations. Don’t miss a single episode.   
In other news
All aboard The Wellbeing Journey. We have a brand new resource coming soon to the HOPE shop for your church and community. Your Wellbeing Journey booklet is an invitation to check in and explore total health. It’s a great giveaway as people look towards the post-Covid future and decide to do things differently. This booklet encourages simple, practical steps with Jesus at the centre. Take or share the self-assessment check-up to see how well you or others are doing.
Roy-facebookDon’t forget 23rd March is the National Day of Reflection. We are encouraging people across the UK to express their grief and reflect on those who have suffered and died in the pandemic on this date - the anniversary of the first UK lockdown. We urge you to encourage your community to take part by marking the date at 12 noon. To support them on this day, link them to sites like Hope Spaces for inspiration for prayerful reflection and share a support tool like Hope In Uncertain Times
Not yet out of lockdown but out of ideas? Youth E News is the place to be for up-to-date resources and tools for your youth leaders to fire up the next generation for mission and kick start your in-person and online ministry in the coming weeks.  

Don’t forget the census! Ask God to show you and your church what to do to make Jesus known in your community so next time there’s a census, it shows more people have become Christians.

We are grateful to be on this journey with you.

Love and prayers
