Who Are we?

We are all ordinary people from different cultures and backgrounds who have been saved and brought together by an extraordinary God.   Whilst we are all from different nations, we share the same story of hope and joy.  Jesus came into the world to save us from our sins and give us a new life with Him.   This good news has saved us, changed us and brought us together into this wonderful family of God.  We are really keen to see people from all nations come to know Jesus and find new life with Him.











what is our mission

Our mission is to prepare people for Christ's return to the glory of God. 

We do this by:

  • Adoring Christ as Lord

    We adore Christ as our Lord, worshiping Him as we place our whole life under His rule. 

  • Building the Body of Christ

    We build the body of Christ, speaking the truth in love so that we might all grow to be like Christ, our head.

  • Welcoming those Christ Brings to Himself

    We joyfully welcome people from all nations whom Christ is bringing to Himself, removing any divisions and accepting one another as brothers and sisters in Christ.

  • Sending believers into the world

    We send believers into the world as ambassadors & servants of Christ, spreading the life-giving message of Jesus & practically showing love to others.

What we believe

The Trinity

We believe in one eternal God who exists in loving relationship as Father, Son and Holy Spirit - one God in three persons, as God has revealed through His word and as the church has confessed in the Nicene and Apostle's creed.


Predestination

We believe that God is absolutely sovereign, and predestines all things in accordance with His will.


Grace Alone

We believe that we are saved from sin and judgment by grace alone.  Our salvation is a gift from God, not something that we have earned.  Therefore, no one can boast about their salvation but rather receive it with humility and thanksgiving.


Faith Alone

We believe that we are made right with God (justified) through faith in Jesus Christ.  We are not made righteous through our own works, but only through trusting in what Jesus has done for us through His death and resurrection. 


Christ Alone

We believe that only Jesus Christ can save us from our sins and bring us back to God.   Dying for us, he took the punishment for our sins and rising again, he gave new life to those who trust in Him. He is the way, the truth and the life and no one can come to the Father, except through Him.  


Bible Alone

We believe that all of the bible is God's living word for us and is sufficient in clearly teaching us how we can be saved through Jesus and how to live God's way.  We believe that God speaks to us through the bible and that any other claims of truth must always be tested against what the bible says.  


Glory to God Alone

We believe that God is worthy of all honour, glory and praise.  God first created us so that we would worship Him.  He has now called us out of darkness and back into His wonderful light so that we might worship Him again, declaring His praises, honouring His name and living for His glory.
