Our passion is connection.  We long for God's love to overflow through our church family into all aspects of our lives and become a place of deeper, more alive and joyous connection to God for us and for the community in which we serve.

What a morning. Such a big thank you to Kath, from the moment she started talking this morning it felt the holy spirit was filling the hall. I’ve never felt God’s presence so tangible as this morning. I’m not good with words, and I don’t think this email will do justice to convey how moved I was this morning. The tears flowed non-stop and I don’t know why. I wasn’t sad. The words being spoken were just so, so powerful. I have only been attending this church since last summer, but boy what a family. Thank you all, god bless, and hopefully see you all next week

This is a church that makes it easy to belong. I experienced a warm welcome from the first time I walked in the door and over the years, I have been blessed to become part of the church family.  I've been supported through the highs and lows of life, introduced to the Holy Spirit, encouraged and challenged to grow in my identity and calling in Christ.
