Our Christian Faith
Although we are an Anglican (Church of England) church, many of our members come from other backgrounds. We seek to deepen our love and faith in Jesus Christ and, as we are able, to respond to all in our community with love, care and service.
Much of our recent teaching has been building on two key bible verses “Love your neighbour as yourself and with all your soul and with all your mind” and “Love the Lord your God with all your heart (Matthew’s gospel chapter 22 verse 37- 9) and “Therefore go and make disciples of all nations (Matthew’s gospel chapter 28 verse 19)

Some see “being a Christian” as something you “are” or “aren’t” depending on your upbringing. But Christianity can be described as growing in a relationship with God which we would love to help anyone understand and grow in. We recognise that we all can grow here by reading the bible, praying, supporting each other and serving our community.
