Helping the spiritually curious find hope
HOPE Spaces was launched at the start of 2020 inviting churches to use a public place as a space for the spiritually curious to explore prayer. Then the world went into lockdown. Undeterred, HOPE Together has developed a virtual HOPE Space at www.hopespaces.com to help people to pray – maybe for the first time.
Dr Rachel Jordan-Wolf, who inspired the project says, ‘As lockdown began and research showed that many non-Christians were exploring prayer, we looked online and found that most websites about prayer were for practising Christians. So we began to develop a virtual HOPE Space online, where people can post their prayers and explore ways to engage with God in prayer.’
www.hopespaces.com is a multimedia, interactive site for anyone who wants to try praying, the spiritually curious and anyone looking for hope. It includes a specially-made film to help people call out to God and a virtual HOPE prayer wall where anyone can post a prayer. There’s also a meditation on rest to watch, plus content to help visitors think about their life’s direction and pray for justice or peace.
Please help us publicise the website
Would you help us to publicise this non-Christian facing website? Visit the site at www.hopespaces.com and share it with your friends, especially those who are not-yet Christians. You can download social media images to use here.
‘We hope that Christians will use social media to invite their friends, colleagues, and neighbours to explore prayer at www.hopespaces.com and we hope churches will add a link from their website to this new resource,’ says Rachel.
www.hopespaces.com is part of a larger HOPE Together initiative at www.hopeforall.org.uk where the spiritually curious can also read stories and watch videos about people who have found hope through faith in Jesus.
