Bringing people together
Our projects aim to bring people together, helping to build a stronger, more secure community. We would like to work in partnership with groups in Chippenham and make use of the facilities available at St Paul's Church. Take a look at what we have planned - we hope to welcome you soon.
If you’ve got an idea you’d like to discuss with us please send us a message to register your project.
Our fortnightly coffeeclub is going weekly with extended opening hours!
The HOPE Centre provides a warm and safe environment to have a drink, piece of cake and a chat. Why not come along with a friend and play one of our board games. There are toys for youngsters too and wi-fi if you need. Refreshments are free but donations are welcome for those who are able.

Charity “Thank You” Lunch
A thank you lunch was held at the HOPE Centre at St Paul’s on 12 November. Eight charities attended CAP, Community Hub, Doorway, Food Box, Kandu Arts, Olive Branch, the Lions, and the RISE Trust. Food was kindly supplied by Tescos.
The event provided an opportunity to network and discuss the needs of Chippenham, the main issues facing their organisations and how we could work better together.
We agreed to meet quarterly, learning more about each other and supporting each other to serve the Chippenham Community.
Affordable Fruit & Vegetable
We support Food Box, a charity which has reached over 200 people by supplying them with left over food. After our community lunch, the fresh fruit and vegetables were given to Food Box so that nothing went to waste.
We look forward to finding more ways to support this organisation.

Room Hire - West End Has Faith
The HOPE Centre at St Paul’s recently hosted a concert by West End Has Faith, a group of musical theatre performers from the West End who performed some of their favourite show tunes and shared some stories from their life under the spot light.
Over 180 people attended this first concert in the HOPE Centre and we hope many more bands, choirs, orchestras will enjoy performing in our lovely refurbished church.
Save the date – Saturday 16 December!!
Back due to popular demand, West End Has Faith will be returning to St Paul’s for a Christmas concert on Saturday 16 December. We know it’s a very long way off but we’re just excited to share the breaking news.
