Diocese of Portsmouth
Hopeweavers are pleased to be supporters of the Spirituality programme offered by Portsmouth Diocese as members of the Spirituality Network, as participants, leaders, and co-workers.

Diocese of Winchester
Hopeweavers are based geographically within Winchester Diocese and the community benefits from the active participation of several members of Diocesan Clergy. We regularly pray for the work of the Diocese.  

Hilfield Friary
Hilfield Friary is one of the religious communities that Members take time to experience for our own rest and retreat.  We benefit from our relationship with the community who model a compelling example of simple living through the everyday experiences of life as Franciscans.  Since 2010, some of us have been able to share residential time together for two weeks or so during the Summer months. In addition, Hopeweavers lead retreats at the Friary as part of the Hilfield programme.

Sacred Space
An online resource for Daily Prayer.

Also grateful to the congregation and leadership at St Lukes for their support and encouragementWe have been pleased to lead occasional services and St Lukes has hosted our Annual Gathering since 2013.  Several Community of Hopeweavers Members are part of this lively church

The Northumbria Community
We sometimes use resources from Celtic Daily Prayer as part of our days at Hopeweavers. Several of our Friends have close connections with the Community in Northumberland.

The Retreat Association
We have found much encouragement and guidance from the Director and the team at the Retreat Association. For several years we have been privileged to host a Regional Quiet Day in partnership with the Retreat Association and have played creative leadership roles in the National Conferences.
