Every Sunday | 10.30am
Hello and thanks for your interest in Hope Church. We hope you will find this website useful to get to know a little bit about us and our mission here in Nottingham. Feel free to have a look around!
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.
A warm welcome awaits you at Hope both on Sundays and throughout the week where you will discover a variety of activities to suit all ages.
Our Sunday morning gatherings include songs, prayer and teachings based on the Bible. It starts at 10.30am with a session of uplifting praise and worship, mixed in with greetings, notices and prayers. This usually lasts till around 11.30am dependent on whether we are having communion together – we like to keep things informal except for start and finish times. At around 11.30am Stephen, or one of our other leaders or various special guests will give a talk for the last half hour. This is based on the Bible and talks to our experiences of following Jesus. We aim to make these practical and relevant to every day life.
After the service there is no need to disappear straight away – we’re a friendly group and many people stop around after the service for a chat, a drink and some light refreshments in the Hope Cafe. A number of our leaders will be available too if you would like to be prayed for.
You are welcome to participate in the above as much or as little as you like. You don’t have to dress up, just need to come as you are. All ages are welcome and we have a full range of children’s activities.
Our main building is situated a short walk away from Nottingham Trent’s Clifton Campus. We also offer Student placements as part of our partnership with NTU.
Open from 9 – 4 weekdays and 9 – 2 on Saturday, the Hope Café serves delicious, home made food and hot drinks. We also do regular events on Sunday evenings in there, for more information you can…
Obviously you know where the website is! On here you can learn more about us and have a listen back to previous services (and sometimes watch, if we have live streamed the service).

“My deepest awareness of myself is that I am deeply loved by Jesus Christ and I have done nothing to earn it or deserve it.”Brennan Manning, The Ragamuffin Gospel
“If the gospel isn't good news for everybody, then it isn't good news for anybody. And this is because the most powerful things happen when the church surrenders its desire to convert people and convince them to join. It is when the church gives itself away in radical acts of service and compassion, expecting nothing in return, that the way of Jesus is most vividly put on display."Rob Bell
