Community Groups are the best way to get involved and integrated into Church of the Advent Hope. These groups cultivate community by providing a safe and inviting space to eat and drink with fellow believers, share new experiences, foster new friendships, and engage in meaningful service projects. Community Groups meet for a few months at a time, usually twice a month. Groups are hosted by Advent Hope members from all corners of New York City and all walks of life.
