Mission and Vision
The church we envisage is Christ Centred, Purpose Driven and People Empowering.
The church we envisage is exciting! We see a church with adults and children from different people groups and different walks of life. The church is bursting with life with initiatives focused on changing lives, changing our community and changing the perception of Church.
The church we envisage has a strong sense of family. Everyone has value and everyone has a part to play in God's great story. Family life is outworked through a network of small groups spread out across the parish. If you have not yet joined a small group why not visit one and find a group where you can be blessed and can be a blessing.
The church we envisage is passionate. Meetings are hallmarked with exuberant praise, intimate worship and inspiring preaching.
Come and join us!
