WELCOMING

We are welcoming and inviting in the spirit of God. We are committed to including all people, regardless of race, gender, age, sexual orientation or spiritual background, in all aspects of church life. We joyfully take this welcoming attitude into our community and the wider world.

Ways to be welcoming:

  • Inviting people to church
  • Opening my home for those in need
  • Not judging others who think differently than me
  • Speaking to new members and offer help where possible

TRANSFORMING

We are committed to providing varied worship experiences and educational opportunities that enable our diverse congregation to further their Christian relationship with God. We attend worship services and participate in faith-related activities, learning from one another as we experience God’s presence in our lives.  As we are transformed by these experiences we will fulfill our commitment as a church to be the ‘body of Christ’ in our daily living?
