Vision & Mission

Vision & Mission at Hope Church Sevenoaks

Hope Church is committed to following Jesus Christ. We recognise He wants us to love God, love one another, make disciples and share the good news that Jesus is alive.

Goals for 2019

These goals don't change. However, we also recognise God gives specific direction to each individual church to help them fulfil these tasks. And this direction can change, often with a new emphasis each year.

In 2019, Hope Church is aiming to 'Do Church Bigger'.

This has come about after a number of prophetic words and encouragements challenged us to believe that God wanted to significantly increase the size of the church and its impact on the town and beyond.

Due to this Vision we have identified six areas of development. They are:

  1. To pursue a policy of planting and growing new Hope Church congregations. Initially within the Sevenoaks district, but to be open to going beyond these borders.
  2. To create a church facility that can contain at least 400-500 in one sitting.
  3. To increase the number and variety of Connect Groups within the church, to provide ‘home’ and discipleship for all who want small group connection.
  4. To make the gospel message ‘bigger’ in Sevenoaks.
  5. To shape ourselves into a hub – a resourcing base - for new congregations, church plants and Connect Groups and other initiatives.
  6. To encourage and support the church in others parts of the world – especially Europe, and within that a specific focus on Germany.
