Our Vision & Values

Our Vision

Although our building is stone, heritage, traditional, as a community, we are young, old and in-between, rich, poor, employed and re-training, multicultural, families and singles, Bible scholars, seekers.

More than the building itself, we are the church, and we are diverse and inclusive.

Our Purpose:

  • Loving God
  • Loving one another
  • Loving our neighbours

Our Priority:

  • Being a good neighbour:
    • where we live and work
    • where our church is located
    • in our global relationships

…as expressed in the Parable of the Good Samaritan in Luke 10:25-37.
