Who We Are
And Why We Talk About Jesus
That's why we focus on him each Sunday, especially on the cross of Jesus and the redemption and hope he offers to everyone. We'd love you to investigate Jesus for yourself. Come along to one of our services, grab one the biographies of Jesus from the Bible and talk to our friendly Connect team.

We believe that Jesus, as both God and man, died on the cross in our place and was raised to life to redeem us and so that we might have eternal life.
We love the bible
We believe God wants us to know him through Jesus, and that the Bible is all about Jesus and his great love for us.
we love the church
We believe that people who follow Jesus become part of God’s family, and that we love each other because God first loved us.

It tells the story of a heart opened, chronicling Vanauken’s life, the loss of a loved one, and all God taught him through that. A severe mercy.[…]
We recently replaced our couch – a fairly significant investment – because the old one was starting to break down. One of the things that attracted us to the new one was it’s 25 year warranty. I can’t even fathom having the same couch for 25 years, let alone needing to call in our warranty[…]
The conversation is growing about how we might, in 2017, celebrate 500 years since the Reformation.
