“The need for help, and hope, for those caught up in the scourge of addiction is, sadly, ever greater. Many are doing valuable work in this area, but churches can be confident that with Hope for Glasgow what is always paramount, is the real help and enduring hope which only the truly biblical gospel can bring. It has been a joy to see the work develop under Terry’s steady leadership, and I am delighted to be a Patron of Hope for Glasgow.
