We aim to be a church in the community, and a church for the community. We believe that the gospel of Jesus Christ is not just about changed lives, but also about transformed communities. To help us better understand and serve the communities around us, we have embarked on a Tearfund programme called Church, Community and Change.
Put simply, this programme enables us to ask three questions:
- What resources do we have as a church family?
- What does the community need?
- Can we meet any of these needs?
And it aims to empower us to actually go out and act on what we’ve found.
