The Knutsford Guardian reports on ‘Hope in the Main Street’
"Rev Cotton is known as being passionate about mobilising the church to meet needs in local communities and to bring hope into the lives of individuals."
“The book is my story of how we can bring ‘hope’ into the life of the individual and how when the church works in partnership with others we can bring hope to the whole community,” Rob told the Guardian. “This is why I wanted to launch my book in the local community, to continue those conversations which can help to bring hope and social justice in our town and even our nation.”
