What we believe
God loves you. And as Chritians, we do too.
Regardless of who you are, your background, your family, your past, your present or future, we are in this church because we believe that God is alive and listening to us through prayer, guiding and speaking to us through the Bible, forgiving us for what we have done wrong, and waiting for us in Heaven after we pass away.
We believe that each and every one of us can find contentment through loving and serving Jesus Christ, the Son of God.
A lack of hierarchy, and a respect for individual principles, means that we, and this church as members of the United Reformed Chuch overall are not rigid in the expression of its beliefs, and embraces a wide variety of opinions.
Athe same time, in the words of the URC’s Statement of Nature, Faith and Order, together we are committed to ‘God: Father, Son anf Holy Spirit – the living God, the only God, ever to be praised.’
We are pround to be an intercultural Church, where people with varied ethnic and cultural roots meet, worship , discuss and learn from one another.
Most jobs and roles in our church, whether voluntary or paid are open to all.
