  • Mission statement

    OUR VISION

    Born out of a passion to create a unique kind of church where people of all ages and from all walks of life can encounter God, finding freedom from the past, purpose for the present and hope for the future

    To be a Church where the Leaders strive to maintain unity of the Spirit and walk so close to God that they recognise His still small voice guiding and directing His church - for this time in this place. Nothing will stop it and nothing will stand against it. We see a church that is:

    RELEVANT TO OUR CULTURE AND OUR TIMES - because we aim to be an authentic Christian community that will welcome everyone – no pre-conditions – no special requirements - believing that everyone is of value to God whether they know Him or not - everyone can belong whether they believe or not.

    TRUSTED - because we aim to be an authentic Christian community that will welcome everyone – no pre-conditions – no special requirements - believing that everyone is of value to God whether they know Him or not - everyone can belong whether they believe or not.

    INFLUENTIAL– because we will care about our community, serve its people, support its leaders and apply the wisdom and power of God to the issues we face. We will be known as those who strengthen, restore and rebuild lives, families and community.
