The Hope Centre Macclesfield is an initiative of HOPE IN NORTH EAST CHESHIRE

We are a coffee shop, and a Christian bookshop selling books, cards and gifts. We are an initiative of the churches of Macclesfield and the surrounding area, to provide a beacon of hope to the people of Macclesfield. We provide a means to reach out to the people of the town with hope and compassion, in a practical and unimposing manner.

We look forward to seeing you – you can find our location here.

The Hope Centre is open. See the contact us page for hours – 9:30 to 4:30 on weekdays!
