Hope Baptist is a growing Church in the Peverell area of Plymouth, made up of people of all ages (from Babies to those in their 90’s!). Whatever your background or experience, a warm welcome awaits you.
We invite you to come along and try our Sunday morning service where you’ll find a relaxed, informal atmosphere where there is something for everyone. You may also want to try one of the many activities in our weekly programme, or one of the special events in our new Summer Term Programme 2016.
Looking forward to meeting you soon!
…on the fallout of the EU referendum result, given as an introduction to worship by worship leader Dave Ponsford on 26th June 2016
“I recognise that within our church there are those who voted in opposing ways, but that for everyone the decision made would have been measured and considered. My prayer for today is that we will know the reality that God is with us where we are; however we are feeling HE is in control.
Jeremiah 29:11 says –
‘For I know the plans and thoughts that I have for you,’ says the Lord, ‘plans for peace and well-being and not for disaster, to give you a future and a hope.’
My prayer for our country is that people would re-discover or maybe discover for the first time, a generosity as yet unexpressed in much of the political discourse of recent weeks. And as Christians here at Hope, where our motto is ‘Building a Community to Reach a Community’ I pray that we will remember we are citizens of a kingdom without borders – a kingdom whose currency is love – and that we will uphold the virtues of compassion and justice so that people will be drawn into a new kind of citizenship!
As before communion we often share the peace, so there is nothing better that we can do now than to come together before worship and share the peace with each other.”
Baptisms at Hope – Mark Chalinder and Grace Keens were baptised on Sunday 28th February 2016.
