Our Visionsmall cross and flame

  

Making Jesus known - by loving God, becoming like Jesus, and being led by the Spirit

We are a church which seeks to be:

Christ-centred and Bible based

proclaiming in word and deed the good news of Jesus Christ as Saviour and Lord, in the power of the Spirit

Welcoming and Caring

loving and valuing one another, caring for those in need , serving the community and accepting all comers without distinction

Informal and Contemporary

providing a variety of servics, with an emphasis on relevance and creativity, whilst retaining reverence

All-age and Family Friendly

offering practical Bible-based instruction for newer and older Christians, with the particular aim of making provision for children at every stage of growth

Involving every member in ministry

having an accountable shared leadership and an appreciation of individual contributions and Spirit-given abilities

Outward-looking

having a concern that all, young and old alike, in our community should come to faith in Christ, with a particular focus on the St Paul's and Gryphon communites whilst also being committed to the work of the church worldwide
