  • Mission - Intentionally partnering with Christ in the community to make disciples.

Our Main Focus

Our main focus is on Jesus Christ. Our aim is to communicate His love, forgiveness and power for living. We believe God wants an abundant life for all people.


People are our mission

We believe the church is not made up by bricks and stone but by its people. We have a passion for meeting new people and are compassionate about those around us. This compassion, first demonstrated to us by Jesus, is what we strive to acheive within our local community.
