Our Mission:

“Loving God, loving others and caring for God’s Creation”

· Loving God is expressed in vibrant worship, prayer and lives yielded to Jesus Christ
· Loving others is expressed in sharing the transforming life of Jesus Christ through the power of the Holy Spirit
· Caring for creation is expressed in a concern for justice and our environment.
