We are called, as are all Churches, to carry forward the work that Jesus Christ began in all aspects of the life of people in society. Jesus said to those who followed him ‘As the Father has sent me, so do I send you.’ This is our mission.
These are the values we are setting ourselves. We aim to be:
Worshipful : loving and honouring God
Evangelistic : sharing the good news of Jesus
Community-minded : helping the place where we are
Outward-looking : caring about people whether members or not
Multi-racial : the Bible says we are ‘all one in Christ’!
Ecumenical : Christians from different denominations and traditions working together and welcome people whatever their background
