When you were a kid did you ever play the word association game? You know, the one where someone said a word and you had to say the first word that came into your head. Let’s play now.
Tea…? Fish…? Music…? How about church?
Let’s be honest, church has an image problem. The church is often viewed as boring and irrelevant, full of hypocrites and…well, you get the idea.
And yet this is not the picture of church that we see in the Bible and it is not our experience either. For sure, our church is not perfect, it’s probably sometimes a little boring and, full of normal people, there’s more than likely the odd hypocrite knocking around.
And yet it’s full of people with extraordinary stories. People who once would never even think of stepping foot in a church building and now love it. It’s full of people who once would say their life was meaningless and purposeless and now claim all sorts of amazing things about God, life and what happens when they die.
Our church is full of ordinary people who love God, love people and love life. Why? Well, why don't you come and find out for yourself? In the mean time, check out some of their stories.

When we open our eyes and look around us, it doesn't take long to realise that there are many things wrong in the world.
We don't just want to observe the problems, we want to play our part in doing something about it and so we are delighted to partner with Compassion, International Justice Mission and Home for Good, brilliant organisations doing amazing work across the globe.
