Bags of Hope is a simple idea to bless Manchester, Salford and beyond, bringing hope in unexpected places and help make a practical difference to someone’s life. Your workplace, school or friendship group can become an unexpected place of hope to people experiencing brokenness or poverty in these four different areas:

Asylum seekers | Vulnerable women | The homeless | Deprived local communities

If you have received a Bag of Hope and want to refill it, visit  Saint Philips Church, Salford, M3 6FR on Tuesdays between 1-2pm.

Contact us on 0161 8399709 to check availability.
