What's Important to us

Reaching up to God in worship is important.

When we gather we desire that people would feel included and able to participate as we seek to be found worshiping God in Spirit and in Truth.

Reaching inside to grow spiritually is important.

We desire that people be found growing in the knowledge and understanding of God - that people would not just know about God but that they would truly know Him and be transformed by Him.

Reaching out to others is important.

As a Church Family we desire to be found having a genuine love for those around us utilising any means to point people to Jesus. We see it is vital that we are always ready to give a reason for the hope that is within us - a hope that originates from what Jesus did when He died for our sins, when He was buried and then three days later supernatually rose from the dead.
