What We Believe


We believe in living out our Christian faith as effectively as possible, making an impact with those who do not know the great news about Jesus Christ.

Nicene Creed

We believe in one God, the Father, the Almighty, maker of heaven and earth, of all that is, seen and unseen.

We believe in one Lord, Jesus Christ, the only Son of God, eternally begotten of the Father, God from God, Light from Light, true God from true God, begotten, not made, of one Being with the Father; through him all things were made. For us and for our salvation he came down from heaven, was incarnate of the Holy Spirit and the Virgin Mary and became truly human.
For our sake he was crucified under Pontius Pilate; he suffered death and was buried. On the third day he rose again in accordance with the Scriptures; he ascended into heaven and is seated at the right hand of the Father. He will come again in glory to judge the living and the dead, and his kingdom will have no end.

We believe in the Holy Spirit, the Lord, the giver of life, who proceeds from the Father and the Son, who with the Father and the Son is worshiped and glorified, who has spoken through the prophets.
We believe in one holy catholic and apostolic church. We acknowledge one baptism for the forgiveness of sins. We look for the resurrection of the dead, and the life of the world to come. Amen.

Our Vision

Our vision is of a dynamic worshipping Christian family seeking to play our part in the world-wide mission of God by constantly nurturing, encouraging and supporting one another;

disciples of Jesus Christ committed to praying and learning together;

a congregation radiating God’s love by reaching out to the community, serving the poor and vulnerable, intent on changing the world in partnership with others;

an inclusive group of believers, welcoming all, with a desire to become a living vibrant church, to the glory of God.

We envisage
  • exploring ways to encourage local ownership of our worship, including greater congregational participation

  • offering a variety of styles of worship to enable all who come to encounter God

  • aiming for excellence in all we offer to God in worship


  • encouraging all members to participate in small groups for Bible study, prayer and mutual support

  • providing appropriate environments for children, young people and adults to grow in the knowledge and love of God

  • offering appropriate pastoral care to each individual within the church family

  • learning of, and being inspired by, the work that God is doing through the church in other regions of the world.


  • identifying needs in the town and surrounding area and finding ways to respond as a church community, and in partnership with others

  • encouraging members to give time and money to meet the needs of others

  • providing support for individuals involved in serving the community

  • developing close links with a particular overseas project and finding appropriate ways to offer support

  • raising awareness and taking action on justice and ethical issues 


  • encouraging each member to share the Good News of Jesus Christ with others

  • building links between the church and the wider community

  • developing groups out in the community with links back into the church
