Our Mission

In the Spring of 2011, the Deacons re-worked an aging and barely used mission statement, to better reflect the changes in our congregation in the past eight years since the last one was written. This new statement was approved by the Church Council as a guide for our life together. Here are some of its salient features:
  1. It is outward focused, calling us to practice Christ’s love – wherever there is need, both locally and globally.
  2. This statement calls us to engage in risk taking mission. This is not a call to recklessness, but recognises that there is always a cost to mission. And furthermore, we engage in mission without any guarantee and irrespective of return. We serve because there is need.
  3. It recognizes the growing diversity of the present congregation. There is room for people from every land and culture in this church. We welcome them as a blessing to us, and as a  microcosm and sign of the reign of God.
  4. And as a Christian family, we worship God, and serve him, and it is our prayer, that we may do so with joy.

The Mission Statement:

God calls us to practice the compassion and love of Jesus Christ, locally and globally, in risk-taking mission and service and to nurture a diverse and thriving church family where all people of every ethnicity may worship and serve God with joy.
