About Us

Sam & Rachel Duerden


We’re so glad you have taken the time to check out who we are and what we do. It is our sincere privilege to lead an amazing group of people here at Hope Church in the heart of East Lancashire. We love our streets and the people who live here and firmly believe that the Church should influence its community. Our heart is to see people connect with Jesus through His Church and experience life transformation. Healthy people build healthy families, and healthy families build healthy communities. We are passionate about making a difference in our world, one life at a time.
