You are invited and welcome to come along without fear of judgement or pressure to hear what Jesus intended for all of us. Your level of involvement is of your choosing and at your own pace. If you are searching for answers we will do our best to help you find them. We understand you are taking a big risk, so we invite you to come to a service or a connect group without expecting anything from you. We pray you will find who you are looking for and at the very least you will spend some time with people who are interested in you and want to know you.

Our culture and heart is to minister to families and individuals by providing a safe and welcoming environment to draw nearer to Jesus. We are not perfect and don’t pretend to be still we love genuinely and welcome wholeheartedly.

We believe, as a fellowship of Christians, that we have unique outworking of our own calling a Jesus followers, our own God-given, designed and promised purpose. We can’t please or be everything to everybody. We can do what we are divinely resourced to do and are supposed to achieve.

To fulfil that promise we focus on keeping the church Jesus centric, Holy Spirit fired & led with no compromise on the Word of God, whilst accepting all with the non-judgemental love and care of Jesus. Our worship is alive and current. We often have guest ministries to bring fresh revelation and keep us connected with what is happening today.
