We are a Church in the heart of the Scottish Borders with a vision to make God famous:
IN OUR LIFE - We are following Jesus. The most important thing in our lives is to learn how to do what Jesus said to do.
AS CHURCH FAMILY - We are family together. We share our lives generously with each other & help each other follow Jesus.
AS WE GO - The Borders is our home. We want to love & serve the people that live here and beyond.
We believe that God's love can transform lives and communities, & we want to see that happening in the places that we live. We'd love you to come and be part of it and belong.
When you feel part of a family it makes sense that you’ll want to be involved & play your part. We encourage everyone to embrace our values:
GATHER - Commit to gatherings and be relationally connected.
GIFTS - Commit to serving others.
GIVE - Commit to financially supporting the vision of Hope Church.
GO - Commit to sharing God’s love & the good news of Jesus with others.
