You might be wondering what’s next for you. If you’ve not been before, why not visit our “Plan a visit” page and come and check us out. Beyond Sunday services, there’s plenty you can do to become more involved at Hope.
One of the best steps you can take is to join a Life Group. With hundreds of people in the church community, it’s impossible to know everyone - this is why we have Life Groups. Starting in September, Life Groups are simply an opportunity for everyone to enjoy time together, build relationships, create community, grow together and for many, come to know Jesus. Click here to see the many Life Groups going on at Hope Church, or fill in this form to find out more.
Jesus invites you to know life in all it’s fullness, and we believe that this is found in relationship with God, your maker. If you want to know more about this life, register your interest for our Alpha Course , a great introductory course that helps you to understand Christianity.
If you’re already a Christian, you might want to consider getting baptised. We believe that, having placed our faith in Jesus, it symbolises the washing clean of everything we’ve done wrong. We would baptise anyone who has made that step of faith. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like to be baptised.
There are some good churches in Ipswich and we enjoy a great relationship with them, partnering with them through Network Suffolk. If you've searched around and are now considering making Hope your long term home, we offer a membership course several times a year which we call Getting Connected. Book in for our Getting Connected events to find out more about our vision & values and how you can find your place in the life of the church.
We teach that giving financially to the work of the Church is part of Christian worship. We don't specify how much and nor do we check how much people give, but we do encourage generous giving. We're so thankful for the generosity of those who give to Hope Church, providing the church with the resources it needs to demonstrate God's love outside the church as well as enabling the day-to-day running of the church. Visit our Giving Page for more info.
