New Hope was formed by the amalgamation of two churches.

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.
