Transform - a Christian response to the needs of our communities
Christ Church, with other Church of England parishes, has been challenged by the Bishop of Southwell and Nottingham and the Archdeacon of Nottingham about how it will respond to the Governments' Big Society initiative and the increasing needs within the community. We are currently discussing this and will be adding things to this website over the coming months.
HOPE Nottingham supports the local church to speak and live its mission, in unity, to see spiritual change in individuals and communities transformed.
With a drop-in centre and soup kitchen for the homeless, HOPE Nottingham, incoporating Hope NG9, is providing for the practical needs of the homeless.
Hope NG9 started in 2007 serving the postcode of its name, making it a priority to share God’s love in social action, celebrations and public witness. A lot has happened as a result of churches working together to serve over a period of three years.
HOPE Nottingham, consisting of many volunteers from different churches in the area, has taken the HOPE model and is developing it across the city. As a registered charity Hope will serve the needs of an even wider community.
