Jesus said ‘I have come that they might have life, and have it in all its fullness’ John 10:10


Welcome to the Hope Hamilton Church website! We are part of the Church of England and are here to serve God and the people of Hamilton. 

You can also find us on YouTube and on Facebook.

For details of our services visit our Sunday Worship page.


We believe that a church is simply a community of people wanting to follow Jesus. This does not mean we are especially holy or ‘sorted’ yet but believe that the church is the place where, together, we find the depth and richness of life Jesus came to offer.

The Bible describes church as a body made up of many different parts and that is certainly true at Hope Hamilton. We are of different ages and backgrounds; some are single and others married; some are parents and others are not. We come from a number of different nationalities and cultures; some have been followers of Jesus for many years, some just exploring faith, and some simply seeking a community to belong to.

We believe that any church should be a blessing to its neighbourhood. We pray for Hamilton every day, provide events for neighbours to meet together, and serve by cleaning up litter (among other things!)

You are very welcome to come and be part of this community and we hope to be able to welcome you soon! Please contact Ed if you would like to know more.

Hamilton is a conventional district within the parish of St Mary and St Barnabas, Humberstone and is committed to the safeguarding of children, young people and adults. We follow the House of Bishops guidance and policies and have our own Parish Safeguarding Officer, PSO. The Diocese of Leicester’s safeguarding pages contain vital links and information including contacts for the Diocesan Safeguarding Advisor (DSA) who advise our PSOs. If you are concerned that a child or adult has been harmed or may be at risk of harm please contact the DSA. If you have immediate concerns about the safety of someone, please contact the police and your local authority Children or Adults Services.

If you have a safeguarding concern, then please contact our local Safeguarding Co-ordinator who is Mayo Jolaoso (This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.), or send a message to Ed.

If you wish to speak to the Diocesan Safeguarding Team, or to someone outside the church, their contact details are at
