HOPE Community seeks to create a 'community within the community'. A place of belonging where those who feel out of connection with others can come to contribute and receive friendship and in doing so address isolation and loneliness.
When our vision is realised we hope to have the facilities for young people to learn how to write poetry and songs and express themselves. We would love to encourage different activities for all age groups where there can be community participation. This may include self-help talks, support groups, craft activities, English lessons for foreigners; all with a strong support base from different community and church members.
This is a proposed project that we hope to be able to either start, or inspire others to start. Hope with us that we will be able to realise this dream of ours - to have an open door in the community but mostly that lonely people would find a wholesome place of belonging.
"There I will give back her vineyards to her and transform her Valley of Troubles into a Door of Hope. She will respond to me there, singing with joy as in days long ago in her youth" Hosea 2:15
Dream with us!
Perhaps you have felt lonely in the midst of a crowd of people?
Perhaps you have wondered if everyone else knows something that you cant understand?
Perhaps you have felt like a misfit in society and that no-one cares?
YOU ARE NOT ALONE ... THERE ARE OTHERS WHO UNDERSTAND HOW YOU FEEL.
Following on previous successful bereavement support groups we have a few spaces left for a new group due to begin:
14th September - 2nd November in Galway
these assist those who have had difficulty expressing or reconciling their losses or have felt the need to talk and receive support from others.
