Welcome to Circle of Hope, a church in Philadelphia and South Jersey.

As a church in Philadelphia and South Jersey, we are an opportunity to express and explore God’s love in our region, called to resist and restore with the Holy Spirit. We are one church with five congregations (four in Philadelphia, one in South Jersey) and over sixty cells (small circles of ten) that mainly meet in people’s homes throughout the week. It’s all open to you, too!

At our next Sunday Meetings

That moment when you need to ask for directions in your hometown. “There’s no such thing a dumb question,” comes to your mind. Yeah, we’ve all heard it. But we don’t buy it. So let’s ask those questions that cause us to question that middle-school-teacher cliche. Jesus has some answers. It’s a good time to put everything on the table.

This Week’s Talk:

At 1125 S. Broad St.: Ask Me Anything
2007 Frankford Ave.: I’m putting in the effort, why is God not drawing near to me? (Jess Mints speaks)
3800 Marlton Pike: Can I ask this?
2309 N. Broad St.: How can we be more diverse?

•••
New Here? Here are a few basics.
Sunday Meetings are at 5 and 7pm. (Marlton Pike only at 5pm)
Cells meet throughout the week.

  Let’s Talk

We have numerous voices that help lead us in our journey of walking in the way of Jesus. Face-to-face and living Christ out in community is always important, but we also provide a host of additional thoughts, meditations, and discussions at our main blog for you to engage and dialogue with. Come stop by a Sunday Meeting or join a cell if you have any other questions, or feel free to contact us via email or phone (check out the “Contact” tab!).
