Our Values

We emphasise 10 key values. The statements below express our aspirations as we strive to be the people God wants us to be. Note that these statements reflect the type of people God is calling us to be. We aren't necessarily there yet! For example, we aren't as creative, loving and prayerful as God wants us to be - but we are becoming ... we are moving towards the dream and that is a wonderful journey. That is our mission - to move towards the dream and grow towards being the people God wants us to be.

Prayer

We strive to be a people whose intimate relationship with God expresses itself in persistent, faithful and continuous prayer, who seek both to talk to God, listen and hear from Him and engage with Him in His work in our church, our wider community and the world.

We strive to bef a people who honour the Bible as God's Word and regularly study it, a people who are open to hear from God and seek to apply what is learned so we might be more like Jesus.
