We have been moving steadily over the years to becoming a Church that is real. We have seen a growing trust and openness amongst us developing and there is a real desire to be honest with each other and supportive of one another. Our worship has become much more interactive and informal, and blends the best of the past and the present in a contemporary style. We desire people to go from here having felt that people noticed them as individuals and above all that Jesus loves them unconditionally and wants to bring them in to an intimate relationship with God.
We treasure the gospel of Jesus and look to share it freely by word and action with all who will receive it. We have done so not just through Sunday services but through small groups, prayer times, children’s groups, holiday clubs, schools’ work, Alpha courses, womens’ meetings, outreach activities, night shelters for the homeless and the care van for those on our streets.
It is wonderful to see people who may suffer from low self-esteem, or who feel isolated and forgotten by people in the world find a sense of belonging and being valued for who they are through Jesus.
We have recently opened our new coffee shop, Saltyard. Our prayer is that Saltyard will provide a place of belonging and love in Jesus for all the people in the community.
