Vision Statement : To win people for Christ and to build them up in Christ.


 To win people for Christ

Our aim is to be a Church

- praying that the Lord would open the hearts of many to believe;

- equipping and enthusing one another to share our faith ;

- having regular evangelistic activities;

- showing compassion to the community around us;

- publicising both the message of the gospel and the work of the Church.

Our aim is to enable people of all ages, abilities and backgrounds, to grow in the grace and joy of Christ and become mature Christians. The following are therefore part of our work as a Church and our goal as individuals.
