Friends of Hopeweavers

People who support our work

 

Since 2007, Hopeweavers has developed a growing community of Friends to support our ministry. We are thankful for the encouragement and blessing of the Church of England through Winchester and Portsmouth Diocese in particular - locally through St James' and St Luke's. We also receive prayerful support from a number of other denominations and Christian traditions including locally, Thornhill Baptist Church and Southampton Vineyard. 


Becoming a 'Friend of Hopeweavers' is one way in 
which you could become more involved in 

the Community of Hopeweavers


You will receive a newsletter and our prayer diary 
about 3 or 4 times a year, the next Edition is due in July 2017

 and you will hear about other news in advance. 

Please get in touch with Jane or one of the Team 

if you would like to join the 

75+ Friends already supporting our ministry!


The Community of Hopeweavers have experienced a wonderful sense of God's provision and abundance over the years and have no regular external sources of funding.  We receive donations and gifts from many who choose to become involved. 

We are all learning to 'live lightly' in different places across our community, reusing and reclaiming, requiring just a minimal level of financial support.  Some Friends and Members are able to support us financially, but this is not an expectation - we particularly value your prayers and practical support.

When you send or leave a financial donation at Hopeweavers, it is recorded 
and banked by the Hopeweavers honorary treasurer.  It is from these funds that expenses for hospitality, art materials and a small stipend for the Guardian are drawn.

Your gifts in all forms are equally appreciated

Some are able to bring vegetables for our soups, bake us a cake, collect reclaimed materials for our creative projects based both here and in other places. Do let us know if you have gifts or resources you could share with us.  Recent gifts include bags of small pieces of fabric from the Harbour Project for Asylum Seekers and Refugees in Swindon - surplus to requirements from their 'Sewing Circle'.  

Visitors also regularly bring gifts to hopeweavers in support of local food banks, in particular the Basics Bank in Southampton.

We use 'Jesus - an introduction' to share with guests. Hopeweavers are grateful to be able to offer this excellent resource - thanks to all those who have donated!
