The Hope Journey is an exciting, interactive and engaging way of partnering local churches and local schools in the delivery of certain areas of the Religious Education syllabus. Through the multiple workshop format, pupils will engage with anything from three to six workshops, each incorporating a different learning style allowing everybody to engage in some way with the session. The duration of each Hope Journey event is between one and two hours.
Initially founded in 2008 at Hope Farm Methodist Church (Formerly known as Whitby Methodist church), Ellesmere Port, in response to a local primary school's request for some support in the delivery of certain areas of the RE syllabus, the Hope Journey has gone from strength to strength and is now funded and supported by Wirral Methodist Circuit.
To date Hope Journey support 40 different churches across the North West of England, both in Methodist churches and also with ecumenical partners. The number of churches involved grows steadily. If you would like to be put in touch with a local church who run Hope Journey please do get in touch and have a conversation with us.
In 2014 we were able to offer our first Secondary School workshops: "Encounters....along the way" linking with the Methodist Art Collection which is being hosted in Ellesmere Port during Lent this year. For more information please visit the "Encounters...along the way" section of the website.
