Welcome to Hope Church

We are a Church of England church in the beautiful garden town of Bicester Oxfordshire. Planted from Emmanuel Bicester, we are based on the Elmsbrook Estate (affectionately named the ‘Eco Town’). Our commission from Jesus is to make disciples of people on Elmsbrook, baptising them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything he has commanded (Based on Matt 27:19-20).

Our Vision and Values

Bringing the love of God to Elmsbrook and caring for his creation. We aim to do this by building relationships with the Elmsbrook community and families through supporting local events, children’s activities, invitations to shared meals and other social events.

Apprenticeship to Jesus

We study Jesus and seek to emulate how he lived so that we may become more like him.

Everything we do and believe is rooted in Biblical truth

The Bible is our ultimate authority in faith and practice. It is the Word of God. We live our lives according to its Truth. We embed the Bible in everything we do because it’s all about Jesus

Building relationships and growing community

God made us in his image, to live in relationship with him and with each other. We welcome individuals, families and young children and seek to build vibrant adult and childrens’ ministries. We are a community of believers who meet at our place of worship and in each others’ homes to encourage each other in our faith

Caring for God’s creation

God charged Adam and Eve with responsibility for stewarding his creation. We believe that responsibility has been passed down through the generations to us and we seek to partner with God as we care for the planet.
