    A 4-week course to help people understand the emotions they are experiencing when they lose someone close to them.  Run in the Spring and the Autumn, the next course will commence in October 2021, with a chance to find out what the course covers at an introduction on Saturday October 2nd at 10.30am. The course covers the journey of grief - the emotions and phases of adjustment involved, right through to how to survive the whole experience.  If we can help, even before the course starts, please give us a call. One attendee wrote 'Understanding that the different phases of grief are normal, and no two days will be the same, helps. As does giving myself permission to grieve, then remembering to take responsibility for my own happiness.' Read More

Welcome to Hope Trust

Welcome to the work of The Hope Trust. We are a local Christian charity serving Felixstowe and the surrounding area, working with people aged 50+. Hope Trust is committed to both the practical and spiritual well being of older people and works to make later life a fulfilling and enjoyable experience. Our major focus is on the relief of loneliness and we seek to encourage people to come out of their homes, into a welcoming and relaxed setting, where they can meet up and chat with others; finding new communities and groups of people to connect with.
Tuesday, September 21, 2021
Hope Trust continues to host its support activities, on Tuesdays with the weekly Technology Cafe, Wednesdays with our Tea & Chat session plus our weekly session in Old Felixstowe on Thursday mornings. We are taking things cautiously at each activity as we want people to remain confident that it is safe to come out and enjoy some company and we know people's attitude to risk varies. So, we are asking for people to wear masks as they arrive and move around then remove the mask when they sit down. Board games feature again, but the use of hand sanitiser is encouraged, windows will be opena bit for ventilation - thank goodness it's still mild! We hope that by moving forward cautiously, we can continue to enjoy what we do in a safe manner. Feel free to come along and tell us how we're doing!

Angie S - Songbirds Group

Some years ago my Father needed nursing care and went to live in a local care home. One day he said 'it would be good if a Christian service could be held here.' I realised how important that was for folk who cannot now get to church, so made some arrangements and a small group, now known as the Songbirds, was formed. We go into several local nursing and residential care homes in the town; we sing hymns, have prayers and a short talk. We believe we bring joy and the love of Jesus to those who join us.
