Hope4 AGM Saturday 21st January 10.30am in the Hope Centre

This is to invite you to the AGM of Hope 4 (Rugby) Ltd to be held in the Hope Centre (8 Newbold Road, Rugby CV21 2LJ) on Saturday January 21st from 10.30am.
You can download here:- Hope 4 (Rugby) Ltd is a local churches-led charity which seeks to relieve the plight of homeless and badly-housed people in Rugby, and of those who are experiencing food poverty. We operate a number of services to achieve this aim: The Hope Centre, Hope 4U, the Rugby Foodbank and the Rugby Winter Shelter. We are so grateful to you for the part you play in this local ministry of compassion and practical care.
Thank you.
“Is not this the kind of fasting I have chosen: to loose the chains of injustice and untie the cords of the yoke,to set the oppressed free and break every yoke? Is it not to share your food with the hungry and to provide the poor wanderer with shelter—when you see the naked, to clothe them, and not to turn away from your own flesh and blood? (Isaiah 58:6-7)
Revd Dr Michael I Bochenski (Hope 4 Rugby Ltd – Chair of the Trustees) and Joyce Woodings (Company Secretary)
