Gather - Grow - Go
We want to be a community who gather to encounter God together, where every generation feels valued and connected to others.
We want to be a community that grows both in number and as individuals. We want to see people healed by the love of God and discipled to be fruitful in every area of their lives.
We want to be a community that is impacting our wider community. We want to love the people we meet by serving them, telling them the good news and praying for an encounter with Jesus.
We are a Christian church and members of the Evangelical Alliance.
We subscribe to The Evangelical Alliance Basis of Faith
