About Hope International Church: Hope International Church, an evangelical church, draws visitors from many MetroWest communities, including Allston, Arlington, Belmont, Boston, Brighton, Brookline, Cambridge, Concord, Lexington, Lincoln, Newton, Waltham, Watertown, Wayland, Weston and Winchester and area colleges and universities (Brandeis, Bentley, Harvard, and MIT). Hope is “international” because it attracts many nationalities from the Boston area; has an excellent ESL (English as a Second Language) program; shares its building with the Haitian church, Morijah Evangelical Church; and has helped to establish an Ethiopian church in downtown Boston and a Korean church in Ayer, MA. Hope also has a substantial missions program, having sent many of its members—more than 20 in full-time work at any one time—overseas and into cross-cultural missions for over 50 years.
