About The Hope Journey
The Hope Journey is a fun, interactive and engaging initiative that is open to all people regardless of gender, age or belief.
Although The Hope Journey originated in a Methodist Church in Ellesmere Port and is currently supported by The Wirral Methodist Circuit, you do not have to be Methodist, nor in the North West of England to facilitate The Hope Journey in your church. Training, support and materials are available upon request.
The Hope Journey is an exciting, interactive and engaging way of partnering local churches and local schools in the delivery of certain areas of the Religious Education syllabus. Through the multiple workshop format, pupils will engage with anything from three to six workshops, each incorporating a different learning style allowing everybody to engage in some way with the session. The duration of each Hope Journey event is between one and two hours.
Initially founded in 2008 at Hope Farm Methodist Church (Formerly known as Whitby Methodist church), Ellesmere Port, in response to a local primary school’s request for some support in the delivery of certain areas of the RE syllabus, the Hope Journey has gone from strength to strength and is now funded and supported by Wirral Methodist Circuit.
To date Hope Journey support 40 different churches across the North West of England, both in Methodist churches and also with ecumenical partners. The number of churches involved grows steadily. If you would like to be put in touch with a local church who run Hope Journey please do get in touch and have a conversation with us.
Since its creation, countless thousands of children from a variety of backgrounds have engaged with ‘The Hope Journey’ in a location close to them.
Hope Journey now offer Skype meetings and consultations.
