Looking For a Church?

Welcome. We are glad you have found us.

Whether you’re new in town looking for a church, or new to church entirely, we’d love to help you find the one which becomes family.

Hopefully what you read here can help you in your quest.

But if not, there are plenty of other great churches in our city to connect with.

What we aspire towards:

We are not there yet, but this is where we want to be:

A church that orientates it’s lives around Jesus.

A church of disciples as defined by the New Testament.

A church that dares to try new ways to reach it’s neighbour in love.

A church known for how it gathers around the table more then for what happens on a platform.

A sending church more then a gathering church.

A church that live authentic and connected lives amidst the great adventure of life.

Above all - We want to be a church that is the person of Jesus in our local context.

Saying the unspoken bit out loud.

You know how when you join a new workplace, there’s the written and defined values. And then there’s all the other stuff that you learn after 6 months. Well, here’s that stuff.

We are giving it to you up front because we want you to be deeply connected in a church. And if thats not us, you’re better to find out sooner rather then later.

So here goes:

If you are looking for a church with an excellently produced Sunday service which feels like a Coldplay Concert meets a Ted Talk… we’re probably not the one for you.

We have very talented musicians, we love to worship, we have great communicators, we believe in giving our best – but it is not what we are known for.

If you are looking for a church with universal agreement between every member on every issue of culture and doctrine… we aren’t what you are looking for. 

We think there is space for people to question and deconstruct so that they can reconstruct a healthier vision. Furthermore, not everything is simple.

If you are looking for a church which limits women in leadership… we aren’t it.

We believe that equality is unequivocally biblical.

If you are looking for a church that is very program focused… we will probably let you down.

We have programs all the time, but they create sustainability challenges and are a means to an end. Our higher emphasis is equipping the disciple and empowering them to BE the church in the Mon-Sat world. We dream of a scattered church which makes a city full of salt and light.

Phew, I think that’s most of it.

Let me reiterate that you are very welcome in our church.

We’d love for you to be with us. You don’t have to agree to belong.

We desire to be transparent because life is busy, and it’s easy to fall out of church simply because of the wrong fit. More then we want you in our church, we want you in the big C church.

Be blessed x
