Hope City Delivers Hope!

Added 28 November 2005 View full list    Print version    
The Hope City Church in Sheffield continues to break through barriers in its community care and outreach work. The church has planted other churches across the region, covering Liverpool, Leeds and Manchester.

During a recent visit to Sheffield, Mal Fletcher spoke to a special outreach event which brought together members of the four Hope City churches spread across the region. The event was held in the Hallam university, with three venues using TV simulcast of Mal's preaching. Pastor Dave Gilpin, senior pastor of the church, is also seeing solid growth in the S4 leadership network throughout the region which he also leads. Mal says, 'Hope City is living up to its name. It's bring a sense of hope and a better future to a city that needs it.'

'Dave and his team are really creative, on-the-edge strategic thinkers. I love what they stand for!'

'The Sunday night event in the university building was a highlight for me,' adds Mal. 'I've travelled to much of the world over the last 20 or so years and I have not seen too many people attempting such a media-savvy live event from a local church base. I congratulate Dave and his excellent team!'

During the weekend, Mal also spoke to the main church in Sheffield, and to university students at the ShoutLouder Conference.

The church is also the home of Glyn Barratt, director of the Audacious youth event and Youth Alive UK, which incorporates Revolution Radio.

In the UK in 2008, the Church does not seem to do well on broadcast media. Yet it has important things to say. I want to thank you Mal for your forward-looking approach to sorting this out.

Thanks so much for visiting Speak The Word Church International (Minneapolis). I am a baby boomer who sat with a GenXer - we both knew that what you said was right on. It made me think. I like that.

Mal, I just wanted to thank you for visiting Abundant Life and RN06. I am a psychiatrist in the NHS and agree very much with what you were saying about the secular services coming to us in 20 years for advice on how to do things. A group of us are starting a ministry to be ready to be asked!
