Spot several Lee Abbey community members in the official #HopeBristol highlights video below:

6 community members from Lee Abbey Devon spent a few days at Lee Abbey Knowle West and joined the 8 Bristol community members and our SMC advocate for Hope Bristol 2018.

This meant 15 people under one roof with community members from Europe, North America, South America, Africa and Asia loving and serving our local area in South Bristol.

The host community feels blessed by their visit, their support, the good conversations, and the good teamwork:
