Loving God Loving People

We seek to love God and love people, and are a community that enjoys the goodness of God, his love, his presence and power in our meetings. We are a Bible-based and Spirit-filled church that seeks to follow Jesus as his disciples.

Hope church was started in April 2010 by a small group led by Phil and Emma Howell. We wanted to give people in the south of Crewe, opportunity to find out about the God who made and loves them. Hope church has grown steadily since then and we love welcoming new people to our church community.

Meet the Pastors

We are Phil and Emma, the pastors of Hope Church.

We graduated from Fire School of Ministry, having been part of the Brownsville Revival, in Pensacola, Florida. Following this we worked with West Street Christian Fellowship leading a discipleship and outreach team, until the Lord spoke to us clearly about planting a church in the Nantwich road area of Crewe in 2010. We have great relationships with the other churches in the town, working together as Love Crewe to bless our town with the good news about Jesus. We have 3 children and Phil also works as chaplain to Crewe Alex football club.

Ichthus link church

We are an Ichthus link church and are related to Fire International. We are a member of the Evangelical Alliance, Churches Together in Crewe and Love Crewe.
