The Meadows Estate story

Claire Clarke, vicar of Hope Church Hounslow, shares stories of how Jesus is moving amongst the community of Meadows Estate. 

The Meadows Estate sits in the London borough of Hounslow. In recent years, the nearby community of Hope Church Hounslow has shared life with the families and residents of the Meadows, journeying through the challenges of life together and sharing the love and hope of Jesus.

Claire Clarke, vicar of Hope Church Hounslow, considers it a joy to work in the area. The church runs a food bank and coffee morning, alongside children and youth activities, standing in a gap that emerged when the local council stopped all youth work due to lack of funds. Meadows Youth has been running for four years, with many young lives transformed as they encounter the good news of Jesus shared by the church.
