We offer a church:

  • that is an open sanctuary which seeks to welcome all as we would welcome Christ
  • with a faithful community rooted in prayer and intercession
  • that seeks to share God’s grace and actively supports ministry to the marginalised and vulnerable
  • that is open to further plans and aspirations for ministry, mission and outreach
  • with sound finances, administrative support and a well-maintained building
