A message from Roy Crowne, Director, HOPE
"HOPE is encouraging churches to take every opportunity to put faith into words and action as we build towards 2014 and a year of mission together. The Bag of HOPE is a great way to take action, giving people in your neighbourhood a gift that gives the reason for the hope Jesus gives us."
A message from J John
"The message of HOPE needs to be given to every child in these dark days when so few are being reached with the Light of Christ. UCB's Bag of Hope is a creative, wonderful, simple, non-threatening way of communicating the Truth. With it we can change the eternal destiny of a child."
A message from Andy Hawthorne, Director, Message Trust
"UCB has been built on two key things - generosity and the Word of God. Here they go hand in hand again, with the wonderful Bag of Hope initiative."
A message from David L'Herroux, MD, UCB
"Real hope is what every child needs to experience. This can only be through the power of God presented to them in a personal, relevant and engaging way. The UCB Bag of Hope project gives them the opportunity to receive the best gift of a lifetime, and to know that Jesus is their HOPE!"
