Pastor Stephen and Jo Hackney

Leaders of Hope Church

Hello! What a joy it is to introduce you to Hope, We hope you will find this website useful to get to know a little bit about us and our mission here in Nottingham.

We passionately believe that we are called as Christians to live out Jesus’ radical message of love for the whole world – that there is enough room for every neighbour at our table.

What’s on offer at Hope is not a religious way of life, but to journey in relationship with God through Jesus Christ. A relationship made possible not through hard work or human effort, but God’s kindness and grace.

We’re trying to have the kind of contagious Christianity that can bless the entire community, one life at a time.

So whether you’re new to Christianity, someone who loves Jesus but has maybe fallen out of love with “the Church”, or a committed Christian who wants to be part of a family where church is a verb, we hope you have found your new home with us.

Looking forward to seeing you one Sunday at 10.30am!
