About Us

The Upper Room and Hope Cirencester are run by Christian women and men living in the Cirencester area.

You can write to us at 37a Market Place, Cirencester, or contact us via this website, using the Contact Us form, along the top line of the page.

We are a registered charity, number 1095438. Our charitable objects are to show the love of Jesus and alleviate need and distress, in Cirencester and elsewhere.

We believe: that Jesus came to show [ie tangibly demonstrate by loving people, accepting them, healing them and setting them free from oppression; especially those who were normally excluded or on the margins,] the love of God for humankind and the earth. That love was ultimately expressed in death on the cross, a death which paid the price for all the wrong things we think, say and do that separates us from God. And a love, from the Father, that ultimately raised him from the dead at the resurrection – a great depth of love which is available to all of us today. We also want to show that love.

We welcome everyone. We will not pressure you in any way. We will not ask you for money, or hassle you to accept any religion – although the people who volunteer at the Room are Christians and church go-ers of different denominations. We will treat anything you tell us in utmost confidence. We do not give counselling but will listen, and pray with you if that is what you want.

Our beliefs can be summed up by the words of the Nicene Creed, which can be found here if you would like to check them out further:
