Hope is an opportunity to show God’s love in word and in action; this year we are focusing on the issue of homelessness.

When: Saturday 23rd-Sunday 24th June

Where: Across Brighton & Hove.

Did you know that Brighton and Hove has the highest population of rough sleepers outside London?

We want to shine a light on the sheer scale of this issue in our city, not only to our church family but to our neighbours too. We want to educate people on how you can best serve the homeless, above all we want show our faith compels us to act.
