The Community of Hopeweavers Gathering of Promises for 2017 will be at St Luke's Church, led by Bishop Jonathan on the evening of Advent Sunday, 3rd December 2017 from 6.30pm.  All are very welcome to join in this celebration.

NEW for 2018!  

Members of the Community of Hopeweavers 
will be leading a retreat in March as part of the 2018 Hilfield Friary Programme

'Gaze, Consider, Contemplate.'
Friday 2nd - Sunday 4th March 2018

Take some time out alongside the Hilfield Friary Community to discover more from St Clare of Assisi to 'gaze, consider, contemplate '. Drawing on her own writings, the words of Jesus and contemporary sources, join us as we make intentional space to draw closer to God, to share our own creativity and stories. 
Led by Members of the Community of Hopeweavers, an Acknowledged Anglican Religious Community.
 
Please book this Retreat directly with Hilfield Friary

Looking for space to pray in the day?

You are most welcome to join Members of the Community in West End from 
12-12.30pm for Midday Prayer on Mondays, Tuesday and Thursdays 
including an extended time of stillness, and on Fridays for Holy Communion.   There is no need to book.

Please note that during our fallow months of April and August, the Community share a different rhythm of prayer.  Members pray in their own churches and in various homes across the area.  There are no open times of prayer in West End during these fallow months.

Hopeweaver Sanctuary Spaces - 
Quiet Day Venues

We have a variety of venues offering resources as Hopeweaver Sanctuary Spaces.  Kind hosts in homes, churches and community buildings are opening their doors in support of the ministry of the Community of Hopeweavers, to hold space for guests to 'be still and know that I am God'  Psalm 46:10

  Venues are varied as we are piloting a new way of delivering our ministry.  
It will not be possible to hold any of the 2017 Quiet Days at Tardis, 

for a number of reasons. However Soul Days for Leaders, Team Away Days, Members events and sessions for Enquirers will still be held in West End, 

alongside our regular times of shared prayer. 


We are thankful for newly formed teams at St Columba's Retreat House, Woking and at Bishopstoke, and at Denmead as part of the Portsmouth Diocesan Spirituality programme. Days have been held at The Church of the Ascension in Southampton, at The Lodge Anchorage Park in Portsmouth, at Hyde Church in the New Forest and at Wolvesey Palace in Winchester.


 In addition to a traditional hopeweaver Quiet Day, each venue offers so much more, each with some unique resources - 


access to woodlands, New Forest heathland and 

riverside walks, a full size labyrinth, sea and estuary walks, stunning stained glass, prayerful chapels, 

quiet prayer filled spaces, ancient ruins and access to a cathedral...


  We encourage you to spend some time exploring these new venues, finding the spaces best suited to you to draw closer to God.


And don't forget to check out the extended dates for 

 Hopeweavers at Home and Soul Days for Leaders
