As members of a family we believe You were uniquely designed by God to do certain things. As members of a growing church family we believe you were uniquely created by God to live life to the full in Him! You are not an assembly-line product, massed produced without any thought. You are a custom-designed, one of a kind, original masterpiece!
We celebrate the fact that we are unique – we have different gifts, abilities and personalities and it’s when we come together and get involved, serve on a team that we experience not just teamwork but a real sense of belonging.
‘For we are God’s masterpiece. He has created us anew in Christ Jesus, so we can do the good things he planned for us long ago’- Ephesians 2:10.
