Help us keep the hope-filled message and history of Jesus and his influence within the public's view at Easter, this year and beyond!



Many have noticed that public media becoming increasingly silent about the distinctly Christian heritage that sits behind Christmas and Easter. Significant aspects of our nation’s own cultural heritage and history are being ignored also. Almost ironically, many in our society are concurrently struggling to find hope - which these histories are full of.


Hope Project therefore exists to share messages of hope - mostly (though not only) from a Christian viewpoint. It also exists to maintain awareness and knowledge of our own history as a nation connected with our national values, our biculturalism, and these cultural festivals.

The public website for the project is

The first Hope Project media effort was in 2014, and the Easter effort has continued almost annually since then.


Public engagement with the respectful yet clear-thinking tone of the media has been overwhelmingly positive, and considerable in scale. Some find hope. Some are encouraged in faith. Some simply appreciate the history stories. And local churches in each place find encouragement friendship and new learning through the process also.

- 2022 -

The Easter media effort will run again at Easter 2022. ‘Hope Project Christmas’ will also happen again - though this involves very little public media (beyond digital). The focus is instead on encouraging creativity, to see Nativity Scenes remaining within the public view and celebrations of this festive season.


We need your help to achieve this multifaceted work - that includes not only significant engagement with public audiences, but also year-long networking and equipping amongst church communities nationally. Thank you.
