To encourage people to accept and celebrate Jesus in their lives and dedicate themselves wholeheartedly to following Him.
We seek to live out our mission by being a community of God’s people faithful to His written Word, the Bible, and to His Living Word, Jesus Christ, led by His Spirit and persistent in prayer.
Relying on God’s leading and empowering, we seek to be a church that is:-
Developing Disciples – people who are devoted to Jesus and His mission. God’s mission is to restore the whole of creation, so being followers of Jesus involves every area of our lives. The greatest goal within that is helping others to become disciples of Jesus.
Building Bridges – creating access points into people’s lives through shared activities that are consistent with God’s values and Kingdom: bridges over which we can cross with the good news of the Kingdom; bridges over which people can also cross back into the life of theChristian community.
Co-operating for the Kingdom – focussed on Jesus and His Kingdom, not ABC, so working together with others where possible: local churches, people beyond the faith community who share Kingdom values, and networks beyond our local area.
Our vision leads to actions and activities, which may change with time. Currently some of our activities are:-

Encouraging one another to follow Jesus in every area of our lives, work, leisure, money, and seeing the part we play in His mission.
