Our seasonal news   


February 2019



NEW! 
There will be a pop-up art gallery on 
Saturday 9th March 2019 at the AGM for the Community of Hopeweavers.  The aim is to share creative work undertaken by Members and work begun through ArtSchool@hopeweavers. If you would like to be part of this time of sharing or are a Member or Enquirer and want to display some work, please contact us 

 
It was a privilege to host the Retreat Association Icon - a focus at the National Archdeacons Conference as part of the worship led by a small team from the Community of Hopeweavers.  The icon has been seen by many groups and individuals over the past few weeks including folks from the Winchester Diocesan Spiritual Directors Network, CoH Quiet Day participants and those coming to West End for prayer and Holy Communion each week. It travelled on to Buckfast Abbey and then many cathedrals, churches, religious communities and retreat centres over the coming year - for information   http://www.retreats.org.uk/icon.php  

It was also the centre piece for our gathering service on the 13th January 2019. A privilege to be with Bishop Jonathan as he led his last service before he moves to become Dean of York. 50 Members of the Community of Hopeweavers stepped forward to make their annual promise to live to their Rule of Life through 2019.
