Host a project

Each year we have around 16 projects which are run and organised by churches, local organisations, councils, schools and individuals. 

Project hosts usually organise 4 days of activities in the afternoons each day of the event, these range from social action in the community; (painting, gardening, litter picking, visual improvements) or interacting with the public (messy church, holiday clubs, drop and play sports, family drop in sessions or giving away free food) or evangelism (praying for people on the street, engaging in conversation, prophecy etc).  The aim of projects is to provide a mission opportunity for your church/organisation in your community and for the Hope MK team to have the chance to serve and spread hope, love and joy through their actions.

The best projects are those that are planned early that help meet the needs of the specific community and that have varied tasks for the young people to get stuck into.  Teams attend the same project each day, so you’ll really get to know them.  In some cases we can accommodate projects less than 4 days long, especially if we can pair up multiple 1 or 2 day projects, so if hosting for 4 days seems like too much but you'd be keen to host a project for 1 or 2 days please do get in touch anyway.

On the whole each project is funded by the church/organisation hosting it and is covered by their liability insurance.  However, in some circumstances we are able to cover some costs or provide equipment.

Download the pdf project planning pack for a rough guide, and more info about hosting a project.  All projects must complete a project planning form and risk assessment which is at the end of the project planning pack. Deadline for those two forms is September 10th 2018.

Pray for us

We believe prayer makes a difference because God hears us and gives good gifts to those who follow Him.  If you are a believer we’d love you to pray for us, the people, the preparations and the event.  As the event gets nearer there will be a list here of things we’d love prayer for.
