RENEW Community Engagement Manager with Hope Baptist Church

Renew Hope is a new venture for Hope Baptist Church. We are developing a café style space, where people can come and chat, meet with others, enjoy sharing crafts and hobbies and have a cup of tea or coffee. It’s a safe space where it’s ok not to be ok. There will be times for prayer for those who would like a quiet space.

You can find out more about the Renew movement at https://www.renewwellbeing.org.uk.
We will be working in partnership with Healthy Minds Calderdale

growth and development of the service.
