hope for the community

By Alexandra Khan | 16 September 2011

Not to be confused with Hope Corner, Hope Centre is a story just as inspirational. 39 churches in the Macclesfield area came together to inspire hope in the local community, and out of it was borne the Hope Centre - a coffee shop and Christian bookshop designed 'to respond to human need by loving service'.  In addition to serving up quality coffee and Christian literature the Centre has also been able to respond to prayer requests. 'We're reaching out to lonely, isolated people in our community.' Bob Boland, Chairman of the Trustees, said.

Stewardship was pleased to be able to provide a £20,000 grant which contributed to the start-up costs and we look forward to hearing more stories of hope as the Centre moves into new areas of outreach.
