Hope East Village exists to bear witness to the Kingdom of God by seeking the flourishing of the East Village, the Lower East Side, and all of New York City.

06. living restfully
We are committed to living lives of rest in the midst of a chaotic world.

Our home groups are gatherings where people are seen, stretched, & supported in small communities that are typically 5-12 people. Each group meets for approximately two hours, and the time is spent eating, conversing about matters of faith, and praying.
If you are interested in joining a home group you can get more information by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
