What we believe

At the centre of the town, at the heart of the community.

All we do is measured against this. Jesus calls us, as relational beings, to come together in community, to care for each other and share together, living life inspired and guided by our faith. We are all on journeys in our lives, some of us have been journeying in faith for many years, even from childhood, and others may be newer to faith or searching for meaning in life. Together we can grow in faith.

We seek to be welcoming and inclusive and whilst we do not always get it right, we aspire to it. We also try to make provision for specific needs. Being followers of Jesus means being honest and authentic, allowing for questioning and doubt: we are not perfect (nor can ever hope to be) but we are trying to be as welcoming and faithful as we can be, accepting our shared humanity and human fallibility. We believe we are called together as a community to live out God’s love for the world. God desires the best for everyone and wants us all to be able to realise our true potential as human beings.

To do this, we need to actively engage with the local community being the hands and feet for God in the world. Our reason for reaching out is driven by our faith in God as revealed through Jesus Christ. Together we can see where God is at work and allow God’s Spirit to work through our lives to bring about changes and challenge injustices- locally, nationally and globally. This we pray will come about as we seek to live out the Gospel message of God’s love for all.
