Faith    Stewardship    Membership

Faith

The modern secular world holds enormous challenge to us. There are many deep and important questions that we must deal with concerning our understanding of what is the heart of the Gospel of Jesus Christ and what belongs merely to our cultural heritage. Modern biblical scholarship is still steadily liberating people from a cold formalism in matters of religious faith. We are learning to let go of yesterday and many of its mistaken assumptions and looking for our own contemporary experience of God. We seek to be people with a faith for the new millennium and not people with heads buried in the sands of yesterday. We believe it to be important to know what the BIG questions are and not to be content with small minded answers.

Stewardship

Members of our church community have come to recognise that we are stewards of the gifts of God. The gifts of Time and Talents and Treasure bring with them responsibility. Part of our understanding of faith is that we serve our Lord in serving other people and so we consider together what we can offer to the Church and or the community in terms of Time, Talents and Treasure. In so doing we hope to encourage every one to have a sense of worth and of belonging and to let people feel they can all make a contribution to the wider life of the church.  Our Understanding of Christian Stewardship
