We are diverse and Anglican with a passion, from God, to be a life-changing community in inner-city London. In everything we aim to be generous in our heart and actions, obedient to Jesus and devoted to His mission. Our vision is to glorify God through the re-evangelisation of our area and city so that there will be transformation in our lives and society.
It’s about ‘bringing hope to life’ all around us.
We're part of the Church of England's Diocese of London.
If you're curious about Christianity, we run Alpha three times a year, which is a fun and friendly way to find out more.
We run children’s groups, a youth club, toddler groups and lots of other activities, and we are closely linked to St Mary Magdalene Academy. There are courses and resources on family life (children – teens – relationships and marriage), money and many other areas. Plus there’s always a programme of bigger events, socials and community projects.
If you’re a student or in your 20s and 30s (& 40s) you’ll have the opportunity to meet lots of new people and get involved in our socials. At The Five, our informal evening service, over half the congregation is in their 20s and 30s and there is often a trip to the pub afterwards.
Life Groups meet during the week at various places and times. Usually including food, they provide an opportunity to build friendships at Hope Church Islington; they are also a great way of reaching into our local area.
On Sundays there are many options including contemporary worship, teaching, ministry and plenty of tea, coffee and cake! There’s also space for a more traditional contemplative approach. Why not check out one of our services at Holloway Road – St Mary Magdalene or Westbourne Road – St David. To discover more about which service is right for you, visit 'Sundays'. As and when you wish to get involved there’ll be a wide variety of opportunities to join in.
To find out more about our vision and values, you can pick up a copy of our Mission Action Plan from either Holloway Road – St Mary Magdalene or Westbourne Road – St David. You can also get a copy of our termly guide to see what's going on in the life of the church!
So come and explore how you could become part of an exciting story, helping bring hope to life around you through Jesus Christ! It’s fun, it’s significant, it’s fulfilling and potentially life-changing.
