Our Vision

Our vision is of a dynamic worshipping Christian family seeking to play our part in the world-wide mission of God by constantly nurturing, encouraging and supporting one another;

disciples of Jesus Christ committed to praying and learning together;

a congregation radiating God’s love by reaching out to the community, serving the poor and vulnerable, intent on changing the world in partnership with others;

an inclusive group of believers, welcoming all, with a desire to become a living vibrant church, to the glory of God.


We envisage

  • exploring ways to encourage local ownership of our worship, including greater congregational participation
  • offering a variety of styles of worship to enable all who come to encounter God
  • aiming for excellence in all we offer to God in worship

  • encouraging all members to participate in small groups for bible study, prayer and mutual support
  • providing appropriate environments for children, young people and adults to grow in the knowledge and love of God
  • offering appropriate pastoral care to each individual within the church family
  • learning of, and being inspired by, the work that God is doing through the church in other regions of the world.

  • identifying needs in the town and surrounding area and finding ways to respond as a church community, and in partnership with others
  • encouraging members to give time and money to meet the needs of others
  • providing support for individuals involved in serving the community
  • developing close links with a particular overseas project and finding appropriate ways to offer support
  • raising awareness and taking action on justice and ethical issues

  • encouraging each member to share good news with others
  • building links between the church and the wider community
  • developing groups out in the community with links back into the church
  • expecting to see church growth and planning accordingly

  • a flexible floor space in the sanctuary for exploring different possibilities for worship
  • open church doors daily, providing a haven and offering a welcome and refreshment
  • a church building that appears non- threatening  and is easily accessible to all
  • a  multipurpose building for community use throughout the week
