Hope House

WELCOME TO HOPE HOUSE COMMUNITY

The name that our house was given when it was built in 1899 is Hope House and this has inspired the theme for our community.

Hope:
“Once you choose hope, anything is possible” Christopher Reeve

“Hope is a renewable option: If you run out of it at the end of the day, you get to start over in the morning”, Barbara Kingsolver

“Hope is the little voice you hear whisper 'maybe' when it seems the entire world is shouting 'no'

“Let your hopes, not your hurts, shape your future"

Lee Abbey Knowle Small Missional Community

At the invitation of Knowle West Churches Together, the Lee Abbey community has been present on this South Bristol housing estate continually since 1992. Community members commit to the rule of life and to serve where God leads them in the local area. Our ministry has included pastoral visits, meeting physical and educational needs and supporting local churches in their worship, discipleship and mission. Because we are not a project, we focus more on building relationships over time with people who live or work in the area.

CoFlats Sladbrook

The Cohousing Company received planning permission in June 2005 for the first Co-Flats community. CoFlats is similar to Cohousing but it's just flats.

The related Cohousing Company built the first new-build cohousing community in the UK in Stroud (see Springhill Cohousing entry).

The principles of Cohousing are that decisions are made by consensus, the site is pedestrianised, the common house is used for shared meals and is a communal extension to residents' private living rooms.
