We’re a contemporary church community whose purpose is to joyfully and generously
Love and worship God
Love and care for each other
Love and serve the town
Being merciful, forgiving and kind
Showing compassion and generosity to others in the church and the community
Taking God seriously but not taking ourselves too seriously
Focusing on the main, plain things of scripture
Being teachable, open and honest
Serving others with a self-sacrificial spirit and humble heart
Knowing one another and valuing real relationships
Being relaxed in dress and style
Being non-religious and relevant to the world we live in.
Our Vision Unpacked:
- At its simplest we want to love God and love our neighbours as ourselves.
- To be a church where God is worshipped, the bible is taught, the lost are enfolded, the poor are cared for, the weak are strengthened, the excluded are embraced, resources/finances are released, the natural environment is respected, the strong are fully working, the wider body of Christ is loved and served, all are growing towards maturity.
- To be a church where workers are identified, encouraged, trained, and released to do the works of the kingdom of God. This will include: children’s work, youth work, house/small group leadership, worship, prayer, counselling, preaching and teaching, poor relief, evangelism, healing, church planting, locally, nationally and overseas. Everyone can have a part to play.
- To be a church where everyone sees their daily work as full time service, an act of worship; be they a plumber, teacher, student, parent, nurse, artist, pastor; where the person building a wall or working in a bank sees that task as important as the preacher’s.
