The Community of Hopeweavers (CoH)

Introduction to the community

The Community of Hopeweavers are a dispersed fellowship of friends who seek God through stillness and silence, prayer, creativity, conversation and food, sharing the ups and downs of life wherever we are called to live and work. In 2015, we were welcomed as an Acknowledged Anglican Religious Community by the Advisory Council.  We are very fortunate to be supported by our Episcopal Visitor the Rt Revd Dr Jo Bailey Wells, Bishop of Dorking, and our Warden the Venerable Caroline Baston.  
Through Quiet Days and other opportunities, we work together to offer a focus for all those who seek stillness as part of a Christian faith journey. We welcome you whatever your circumstances or beliefs. Our vision is to develop creative space within our everyday lives where we can make ourselves available to God.  Many come to our quiet days and retreats in other places and find Hopeweavers to be a place of creative renewal as we seek to serve God where we are each called to be. 

Some choose to become Members of the Community of Hopeweavers, prayerfully supporting this ministry and living to our Rule of Life. Our Enquirers work alongside a Guide for a period of at least a year discerning whether membership is a helpful addition to an individual’s discipleship journey.
