Jesus used the image of a tree to illustrate that God is developing a Kingdom of love and peace (Luke 13:18,19).
So our aim as a church is to Grow a Healthy Christian Community as we are:
We aim to deepen the level of our spiritual maturity, through prayer, reflection on the Word of God and through passionate worship. Being spiritually dynamic without being religious, expressing our faith creatively and exploring its relevance for everyday life.
We recognize the value of seeking to nurture a healthy Christian community patiently developing in our relationships with each other. We are relaxed and friendly with many people actively involved in the life of the church. We value children and young people, and their potential as world changers so choose to invest in them.
We are seeking to serve our local community in very practical ways and partner with others who want to make it a better place to live in. We want to demonstrate the love and generosity of God in our service to others. We aim to make a global impact especially where there is poverty and injustice. We are concerned for God’s creation and seek to encourage an appreciation of its delicate balance.
We desire to reflect the character of Jesus, by being genuine, honest and reliable. We try to communicate the message about Jesus in a contemporary and understandable way. We like to welcome new people into God’s family whatever their background. We pray for the nations and help send people out to share their faith globally.
