Welcome to the website for the Hope Mission Network (HopeNet),
a network of Uniting Church congregations across South Australia.

HopeNet is a Uniting Church SA mission network comprised of about 60 congregations and faith communities who share a common evangelical understanding of the place of scripture in the life of the church in discerning the living and active Word of God. HopeNet’s priority and main purpose is to support member congregations as they express the presence of Jesus Christ in worship, witness and mission in their local communities.

While HopeNet came into being in protest over the Assembly’s sexuality debates in recent times, it has been a growing network of UCA congregations who revel in the hope of the Gospel, determine to teach, eat and live in the Holy Scriptures and join with each other in strong loving communion. Yes there are battles to be fought, but we will lock shoulder to shoulder like Nehemiah in his day. And there are daily lives to be lived in thanksgiving to our great and glorious Lord. Christ is the Word in body, in Scripture, in proclamation of His Gospel and in His church of which we are happily a part. As part of our Memorandum states, the ‘One Lord Jesus Christ’ is the final revelation of God who has appeared once for all in a unique event of universal significance.

Monday after Sunday. A leader calls in to share what a great gathering and service they had yesterday.Just a small church but vital signs! From another church a brother sends a video clip about a helpful way of sharing the Gospel that inspires and motivates him. Then a sister txts in that she is helping her husband drafting sheep this morning and this time no impatient cussing just loving! (did hubby tell her to send that in!) And another congregation reflecting on the uplifting participation as the Word of God is spoken out (prophesying) by the people. And a couple of church signs outside of churches visited. How good is all that! And of course others could add,add ! How good to be linked like this! ... See MoreSee Less

Catching up on the good deeds going on there and being one in breaking bread and taking in the sanctifying Word! So here is the end of the storm Jesus painted in split-second changing symmetry we couldn't help but admire just out of Kalpara ... See MoreSee Less

‘Kindness’ is the next ‘fruit of the Spirit word’ to stimulate our fasting -prayer Jan 28 to Feb 17 .
The Greek word used in the Bible for kindness is almost the same as the word for ‘Christian’ . It was spelt ‘chrestian’. Why were Christians sometimes referred to as Chrestians? It was the way they lived, treating all people as their own, with care and thoughtfulness which caused them to be thought of as ‘the kind ones’. They would even take babies discarded in the public square, to their homes nursing and protecting them as their own. Kindness does that, it treats others as ‘kin’-our kith and kin. The Holy Spirit of Jesus empowers humans to fast from self-centred emotions and preoccupations and begin a lifestyle focussing outwardly on others, practically feeling for them as kin. He is producing such a garden of Spirit-fruit What an amazing kingdom Jesus is building in every generation and across all peoples!
