Charity

At Hope Church we support various charities. We want to show God’s love by helping others.  We do this because the bible says:

‘For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you invited me in, I needed clothes and you clothed me, I was sick and you looked after me, I was in prison and you came to visit me.’ Matthew 25: 35-36 (NIV)

‘Religion that God our Father accepts as pure and faultless is this: to look after orphans and widows in their distress and to keep oneself from being polluted by the world.’ – James 1:27 (NIV)

Here is a bit about some of the charities that we support:

CARE FOR THE FAMILY

www.careforthefamily.org.uk

Care for the Family is a national charity which aims to promote strong family life and to help those hurting because of family breakdown.


 

Practical ways that you can help
•    Encourage persecuted Christians by writing to them. It means so much to know that someone from another country cares for them and is praying for them. Download your copy at www.csw.org.uk/writetothepersecuted
 
•    Why not put your loose change in a jar (for example those pennies that you find down the back of the sofa) and it give it to a charity of your choice at the end of the year.

•    Choose a charity whose work you find interesting and inspiring and sign up to receive their newsletters but if you’re not sure which one then. If you would like to be more involved in praying for a charity and in raising awareness but don’t know which one to support then let us know and we’ll help you.

If you know of any charities and campaigns that you think we should know about and support then contact info@hopechurchbangor.org and let us know
