Our 2020 theme of Building Hope and Confidence was timely and pertinent, as we reached out to those who were suffering in deep and unique ways because of the global pandemic. We recognise that the effects of this pandemic will continue to be felt across the world throughout 2021. Therefore, it seems appropriate to develop our theme to encompass Rebuilding Hope and Confidence. As people seek to come to terms with loss of all kinds, from bereavement to loss of livelihood, relationships, wellbeing and other challenges, our work of rebuilding hope and confidence will be vital. We have added to the 2020 resources, which continue to be relevant for the year, to help us to sustain our confidence in the sure and steadfast hope of God as we reach out to a hurting world.
2021 Theme Prayer:
We will walk in hope and confidence, trusting each other, loving each other and together we will rebuild the hope and confidence of families and communities everywhere always reaching forward as God’s hands and feet and reflecting a life filled with purpose and meaning, grace and love, peace and joy. Amen

Rebuilding Hope and confidence Bible verse:
Jesus has the power of God, by which he has given us everything we need to live and to serve God. We have these things because we know him. Jesus called us by his glory and goodness. 2 Peter 1:3 (NCV)
Rebuilding hope and confidence Quote:
Hope has two daughters; their names are anger and courage. Anger that things are the way they are, and courage to see that they do not remain as they are. St. Augustine quote on hope
