Our Mission & Vision


Our mission is to draw closer to God and reach further into God’s world through acts of Christian love and service.

We aim to be a Christian community that engages, surprises, challenges and confronts people with the love, grace and peace of Jesus Christ by the power of the Holy Spirit. We do not expect that people will come as pre-packaged, fully formed Christians but we do expect that through God’s love, shown in word, ministry and action, people will be drawn into relationship with God and with each other. Through this relationship with God we believe that people will be stirred to action: within their families, this church community, their local community and be challenged to bring hope and work for justice in our world.

Our Vision

More than just a place to go on Sundays
More than just a church to get baptised in
More than just a wedding venue
Not just a pretty church...

Our vision is to continue to enable, through the love of God, a community that journeys towards maturity in Christ, reflecting their unique call to become active members in the body of Christ.
