Our Vision

To enable all to pursue life in all its fullness

We are an active, welcoming, multi-generational church of about 140 members. We are becoming more culturally diverse. Around 160 regularly attend worship on a Sunday morning and over 1000 individuals come to the church during the week with many attending church-led activities.

Our vision is for each person we are in contact with to grow in their discipleship journey from welcome, to faith, to discipling of others. We understand that a discipleship journey starts with the first welcome and can be long through many varied but simple steps to faith, behavioural change and witness as we come to know more about God and become more like Jesus.

In the next decade we desire to be more of a multigenerational church with hundreds of passionate Jesus followers living life to the full. We desire to be a community where all are welcomed and accepted, a community where each person of whatever age, life stage or depth of faith is on a journey to life in all its fullness.

We desire to be a community which inspires and enables people, where gifts are valued, supported and released to the wider church. We want to be a community that is faithful in witness to Jesus in action and word, wherever it is each day – each person shining brightly and lovingly for Jesus.

Our LIFE Values

All we seek to do will be
>> God-honouring - which means that everything we say and do is for God’s glory and pleasure;
>> Christ-like - which means living lives of love, grace and generosity;
>> Spirit-led - which means that God is in charge!

Our LIFE Strategy

>> Loving hospitality - we believe life is renewed when hope goes the extra mile
>> Inviting relationships - we believe life grows within authentic friendships
>> Full of grace - we believe life is changed by grace
>> Every-generation community - we believe life improves when all ages are in relationship.
