New Hope was formed by the amalgamation of two churches.

The church works the communities of Athersley , New Lodge and Carlton.

We have 14 members, the Sunday congregation is between 10 and 15 people.

During the week there are many opportunities for members of the community to meet together for fellowship, fun and worship.

New Hopes building has just undergone major refurbishment with help from community and church members.

New Hope offers a place of quiet for anyone wanting to have space to sit and take time for themselves. The small garden has been planted by the children from the church and in the spring and summer time when the flowers are out there is a beautiful mass of colour. The garden is surrounded by many hedges and trees and a haven for many species of birds.
