We want our church to be one that is ...
Welcoming and inviting
We organise church life in ways that clearly show we exist for the benefit of those who aren’t yet members
We are hospitable, creating community that includes people of all ages and backgrounds
We consistently seek out opportunities to invite people to our week by week and special events
We expect belonging to our church to be transforming and fun
We consistently proclaim and explain the Gospel.
Otherly and giving
We expect everyone to give their time, gifts and money freely for the sake of God’s kingdom
We seek to serve selflessly, consistently looking out for the needs of others
We are quick to forgive when others hurt us or get things wrong
We actively encourage and honour one another.
Empowering and risk taking
We encourage people to step out in faith by living distinctly and by leading and serving in new ways
We intentionally delegate responsibility and constantly look to grow new leaders
We give people the freedom to fail, celebrating faithfulness and the willingness to learn over “success”
We expect God to work powerfully in and through us when we meet together and in everyday life, and we expect to be agents of change in our homes and at work.
Worshipping and prayerful
We make worship and prayer an integral part of all we do
We encourage a culture of faith, expecting God to speak to us and expecting the miraculous
We see ourselves as disciples, quick to learn humbly from God and from others
We aim to give God the very best in all we do, while knowing that we need to give and receive grace when we fail.
