Welcome to Hope Church Sittingbourne...
We are a Relational Mission church plant, within the Newfrontiers family of churches.
The Watsons, who are heading up this new work, moved to Sittingbourne on Monday, 7th May 2018.

When & where do we meet?
We will be starting to host weekly Wednesday night gatherings for those wanting to explore the Hope Church Sittingbourne adventure. These will start on 5th September and will initially be hosted at the Watsons family home.
On Sundays the planting team will be primarily based at Faversham Community Church and occasionally visiting other churches across Sittingbourne and wider Kent. This will be during the summer holiday period and potentially into early autumn - Watch this space for updates.
There are several opportunities to connect socially with the Hope Church Sittingbourne team during the summer months. Click the images below to find out more. These are also profiled in the LATEST section.

A collaborative planting adventure
Hope Church Sittingbourne is being planted in partnership with churches from across Relational Mission in Kent.
Cornerstone City Church in Medway is our sending church and Faversham Community Church will be our base-camp as our team adapt to Sittingbourne and begin to outwork daily missional life.
We are part of the Newfrontiers family of churches and are in fellowship with Sittingbourne Churches Together.
We believe we can do far more together than we can apart!
Our missional heartbeat
Mike Betts, the apostolic leader of Relational Mission, recently stated that the mission of Relational Mission could be summed up as 'E+E=C' or ENOUGH (prayer) + Everyone a Witness (evangelism) = Church Planting.
As a movement, church planting is part of our apostolic DNA - We believe that as we gather together to pray and inentionally share our faith stories with others new communities of faith will be birthed as disciples are baptised and raised up to be sent out.
We believe that God has a significant role for us to play across Kent and regions beyond in seeing new life birthed in barren places through strategic prayer and intentional witness.
