Welcome to our church today
It’s great to share with you at church today. Please make yourself known to our staff if you are visiting.
Our Annual Parish Meeting – why you shouldn’t miss it
I know everyone says their thing is important, but this is OUR thing. It’s where you get to hear from YOUR church leaders where things have gone and where things are going. What are the plans for the year ahead and who do you believe should be leading us, caring for us and our funds & property? So I’d ask that at least one person from each of our church families comes, votes in our elections and enjoys the discussions. We need to keep checking that what we are doing really is in line with our Values, and that we’re not just doing what we’ve always done. Thursday 9th March 7.30 to 9pm. Leaders reports from all our ministries must be in to our office for printing by Wednesday 1st March. Word or PDF document emailed in saves Kim extra work.
Our Church Values
These are what make our church distinctly different to other churches. We’ve decided together that this is what really matters to us. We need to constantly, prayerfully check if we are living them out, pursuing them passionately.
Knowing God – We value knowing and loving God, revealed in the Bible as Father, Son and Holy Spirit, so that we may worship and enjoy Him forever.
Bible Believing – We value the Bible as the relevant and authoritative word of God through which we can know Him.
Evangelising – We value wanting to see all people everywhere receive Jesus Christ as Lord and Saviour, so that all may receive forgiveness of sins and eternal life.
Loving Community – We value being one church, an active, generous and loving community across different congregations, generations and ministries.
Discipling – We value seeking to encourage everyone to become mature in Christ and equipped for serving Him.
Praying – We value prayer as being essential for a healthy relationship with God.
Serving – We value serving in love, caring for all with the gifts and resources that God has given us.
Mission Hearted – We value equipping and supporting people for service in God’s mission locally, regionally and globally.
Your brother in Christ, Graham
