Bringing the hope of the Gospel to rural Britain
OUR PURPOSE & beliefs
Village Hope is a Christian charity and company limited by guarantee, with a remit for churches and communities in rural Britain.
Our charitable purpose is “to proclaim and live out the gospel of Jesus Christ in the villages of Britain, in order to establish effective Christian witness, and to encourage and enable Bible teaching, prayer, worship and evangelism in village churches”.
We believe that the Gospel of Jesus Christ offers hope to all humanity, for this life and the life to come, and that the Bible both sets forth the way of salvation through faith in Jesus and offers a way to live and a coherent vision and timeless values for society.
Village Hope is a member of the Evangelical Alliance, and its staff and trustees affirm the Evangelical Alliance’s Basis of Faith.
We also believe that Christians, especially those who live in rural areas, have the privilege and responsibility, as stewards of God’s creation, to celebrate and care for His land and for the Earth, which He created and sustains.
Our objective is to encourage, strengthen, support and resource those who seek to live a Christian life, serve their communities, and witness to the hope of the Gospel of Jesus Christ in Britain’s villages.
