More about our
Mission and Ministry...
- Cherishing our inheritance of Christian faith
There is something special about meeting for worship on a site where
people have met for over 1300 years to hear the scriptures and sermons,
and to share the bread and wine in Communion.
- we strive to welcome all
We're fairly accessible... and are working on the ways in which we're
not so accessible.
- and share the joy of the Gospel message in
'Gospel' means good news ... it is about joy and hope.
- through concern for the wholeness of individuals
There is no-one with whom we cannot pray...
and there is no situation beyond prayer...
and Action goes alongside Prayer...
hence our commitment to support mission and ministry beyond our own
Ministry of reconciliation is available
- and active involvement
in community life in all its diversity
Which includes welcoming the community into our building for arts
events, to enjoy fellowship and hospitality, and just to find space.
And our members living and working to enrich the wider community in
their daily lives...
