There are few emotions more powerful than hope. It’s a spark inside you that brings a smile to your lips; a light that shows on your face; a feeling that lifts your head and pulls you forward. Hope is what keeps us alive. But these days it often feels hard to come by. Yet real hope is what the Christian faith claims to offer: a joyful expectation for the future, based on true events in the past, which changes everything about our present.
At St Andrew’s, we are pleased to run a new three-week course for seekers, non-Christians and those with big questions about faith. Join us on 15 January at 7:30 pm as we seek to uncover how he alone brings the hope we so desperately need.

If you have any questions please do come and get in touch. We would love to help you share the gift of Hope this January.
