Our pastors

Pastors Sats and Emma Solanki met at Hope City Sheffield in 2007, having both moved to the city for University. They both felt the call of God and decided to start their married life by doing Hope City Internships, with two years of leadership training. Thus began their church planting adventure. In January 2012 they were sent as part of a team serving Pastors Steve & Siobhan Bullock in planting and establishing Hope City Frankfurt in the nation of Germany.

In November 2015, they were asked to step into leading Hope City London. Emma grew up in London as a child and Sats also had family history there so the city has always been in their heart. Since then, multiple Dinner Parties have been launched and rich relationships have been built with campuses in both Shoreditch and Balham.

The Solankis have three young children – Jemima, Samson & Jack.
