Who We Are
For us, “church” is not primarily about being an organisation or going to religious meetings, it is about being part of a family – part of God’s people – and learning to become more and more like Jesus every day. We don’t do anything out of duty, but out of thankfulness to the love of Christ.
But we do love to get together as often as we can throughout the week and on Sundays, in our church buildings and in each others homes, in order to praise God together and to love and serve our neighbours, and everyone is more than welcome to come along and join with us in this. Feel free to check out the “What We Do” section for more info.
Our Mission Statement as churches is that:
“As churches we seek to Love God, Love Each Other and Love our Communities.”
By this we mean that for us church is not just about tradition or religiousness, but it is about praising and loving Jesus because of what he has done for us, especially by his death and resurrection. Church, therefore, exists to be a place where people can truly meet with and experience God.
As churches we don’t merely exist to meet on Sundays and go through the motions of religious services, but instead we live as communities of God’s people. Therefore we should love and care for one another by sharing our burdens, our lives and our possessions.
Finally, our churches don’t just exist for their own benefit, but we exist to show God’s love to our community – through acts of service and especially through sharing the Good News of God’s grace and mercy.
