Furthering Ecumenical Cooperation within Leicester and Leicestershire


Hope 23-24 is a new call to action for the church to come together to offer the hope of Jesus Christ in a year of mission.

Why now?

In a period of uncertainty as 2022 comes to an end, we feel there is an openness to the message of Jesus.

Following the Talking Jesus research we did earlier in the year to understand how the UK felt about Christianity to use facts not anecdotes, we discovered insights to help shape our evangelism and mission.

"Will everything be ok?" was the question that resonated most with the UK public. As the events of the year have unfolded this question still resonates.

Also, the biggest influence that brings adults to faith is a life event -either positive or negative! This means the pandemic, war in Ukraine, energy crisis, and cost of living crisis combined all create uncertainty, and the church needs to help people through this difficult time.

What do we do?

Now’s the time to make sure everyone in the UK gets the opportunity to find out about Jesus. We will work together to achieve this.

Know your why

We are encouraging you to do is to make time to consider the full research and dream about how you might tackle this opportunity.

Read the Report

There are many statistics that point to the importance of peer conversations, people reading the bible for themselves and attending a church service. You can watch a long explanation of the report here or a short one.

What's available

The Talking Jesus report can be downloaded in full or purchased in the shop as a hard copy.
