Passion

Regularly we support or organise national, continental or global "RailHope Festivals“ to inspire and encourage fellowship 


But you are a chosen people, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, God’s special possession, that you may declare the praises of him who called you out of darkness into his wonderful light. Once you were not a people, but now you are the people of God; once you had not received mercy, but now you have received mercy.

1 Peter 2:9-10


The idea of community comes from the sense of responsibility we have for each other. In the Bible, God encourages us to take care of our brothers and sisters in the Lord, while following the word of the Lord. We must remember the importance of maintaining the connection with our fellow man to ensure a thriving community of Bible believing Christians from all over the world. We believe that our love for God and our love for one another is the dynamic and empowering expression of the Holy Spirit working though each and every person who has salvation through the sacrifice of Jesus on the cross and through His resurrection to eternal life.

RailHope International Prayer Meeting 2021

RailHope International responded to the COVID-19 Pandemic to ensure that any event we had would be safe for everyone who would take part. This is why in 2021 RailHope held its first international online, live-streamed prayer meeting. Participants from around the world took part and prayed together. Please watch the video which shows some of the event.
