What We Believe
We are a community of ordinary people who have experienced the amazing love of God first hand.
That the Bible is for today. In it God speaks to us. It gives us the guidance and direction we need in order to live as our Maker intended.
We continue to learn more about Jesus and better understand what it means to follow His example today.
Jesus Christ was God born as a human being to reveal God to us;
Jesus died on the cross on Good Friday so our sins could be forgiven;
Jesus rose from the dead on Easter Day to give His gift of eternal life to us;
The Bible is inspired by God and is God’s word for everybody;
God the Holy Spirit lives in everyone who believes;
We believe it is right to show our faith by being baptized as believers.
We share the same core beliefs with all evangelical Christian churches.

We encourage everyone to discover more about God's exciting plan for you and to be part of the church family by:
Explore Christianity - please ask us about attending a short course that explores Christianity and gives you the opportunity to ask questions.
Be Baptised - Jesus commands us to demonstrate our faith in Him by the visible symbol of Baptism.
Become a Church Partner (church member). Being a church partner recognizes your commitment to the church family as your "spiritual home". Church partners are also responsible for making key decisions and electing Deacons who serve the church as part of the leadership team with the minister.
Serve Others - There are many ways to serve the church and the local community. Please pray and talk to us to discover how you can use your gifts and talents. (eg Christmas Leaflets!)
Give to the Church - The church is self-funding with the majority of costs being met by people giving regularly to the church by a bank standing order. Please download the "Partnership in Giving" leaflet (below) for further details.
