Our Vision is to ‘continue the work of Jesus’ in the times in which we live. We believe the message of the bible is still relevant to every generation and every nation, and therefore we unreservedly commit ourselves to being an influence for Christ to the people we come into contact with. We’re passionate about God’s word, living out his commands in our daily lives and being authentic Christ-followers, expressing our faith to those all around us. We’re an evangelical and charismatic church with a strong missional focus.
