'May the God of hope fill you with joy and peace.'

Romans 15.13


Throughout the year, we will be thinking about Hope:


  • The coming of Jesus is foretold  (Isaiah 9.6B)
  • John the Baptist (Matthew 3.13-17)
  • Jesus ascends into heaven (Luke 24.50-53)
  • The loving father and the prodigal son (Luke 15.11-24)
  • Jesus heals a paralysed man (Luke 5.17-26)
  • Jesus walks on water (Matthew 14.22-33)



Christian hope is rooted in God’s love for us. Christians believe that: God has our best interests at heart; God will never leave us; God will provide for us when we are in need; God knows us (even the number of hairs on our head!); and God promises us of a better life to come. When we are in our darkest time, God is there, and will help us. Hope is grounded in the character of God; the Bible is full of stories of how God changes situations.


The children have thought very carefully about how they can help hope grow not only within our community but throughout the world and co-created this display.
