“… whoever wants to become great among you must be your servant, and whoever wants to be first must be slave of all. For even the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give his life as a ransom for many.” Mark 10:43b-45

At present we are without a minister and so the Leadership Team is looking after the church.

We believe in the model of leadership that Jesus demonstrated to His followers, namely that first and foremost a Christian leader is a servant to those they are leading.

We are a diverse group of people who share a common desire to serve God in this place.

Please make yourself known to us – we would like to get to know everyone who comes to the church!
