HOPE is the PCC committee that focuses on Mission.
What does HOPE stand for?
We raise funds and awareness for nominated charities both at HOME (here in the UK) and OVERSEAS. In PARTNERSHIP with these charities, as well as raising funds, we also seek to provide EDUCATION about their work.
We support two main charities, which may be national or international for a period of two years. Our two main charities in 2019 are:
Medécins Sans Frontiéres’s medical teams act fast to save people’s lives in conflict zones, natural disasters and epidemics. They go where they are needed most.
Safe Families for Children works hand in hand with Children’s Services to link families in need with local volunteers who can offer them help and support.
We also provide POTS OF HOPE(£50 donations) to small, local charities in our community and support the work of the Children’s Society and Christian Aid.
