Our Core Values.
Core values serve to unify our efforts and define our distinctive characteristics as a congregation. Every church has shared core values, these values communicate what’s important, influence overall behaviour, inspire people to action and shape the vision of the church. While there could be a lengthy list of values we have chosen to agree on the following and allow them to guide us in our ministry together.
WE VALUE GOD'S WORD
II Tim 3:16. We believe in an honest engagement with the Biblical text, understanding and applying it in order to find our place in God’s unfolding story, becoming more like Jesus in character and conduct.
WE VALUE SHARED RESPONSIBILITY
Matt 28:19, Acts 4:12. We believe that all followers of Jesus are called to be responsible witnesses in our speech & actions, together making a difference in the church and community.
WE VALUE WELCOMING EVERYONE
Eph 4:12. We believe that in the church we are constantly addressing two audiences – those who have already crossed the line of faith and those who have not, we recognise the need to minister to both.

WE VALUE SHARED MINISTRY
