Being part of City Hope feels like you are being welcomed into a huge diverse family- it doesn't matter what age you are, what nationality you are or what you do; you too can be part of that family and you will fit in. But it's also an outward looking community full of motivated and inspiring people helping you to go out and spread God's love. There's nothing better! Angela and Gary Lynch, church members
