Who we Are

For us the church is not a building Rather, we prefer to regard it as a spiritual family made up of people from different backgrounds, ages and nationalities - but united through a shared faith in and commitment to following Jesus Christ as our Lord and Saviour.

We enjoy meeting up to worship God and encourage each other. Like any family we each face different problems and challenges in life, so we believe it's good that we can worship God, pray for each other, support one another and share life together.

As a family, we don't always get it right, but through all our experiences we seek to grow more like Christ and share our faith with others.

Anybody is welcome to join us at any of our services, make new friends and become part of the family through faith in Jesus.

What we Do

Every Sunday we gather to worship our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. This normally includes time in prayer, a talk to the children, singing songs - modern and old and a talk based on a passage from the bible, which we seek to understand and apply to our lives. Frequently we have times before or after the service when we have tea/coffee/food and spend time together.

Please note that due to COVID some of these meetings are not currently taking place - please contact us for further information.

JOY Club

On Friday from 6:30 to 7:30 we have our children''s club, when children of primary age do games and crafts and learn some of the stories of the bible and how to know Jesus.

What We Believe

The bible teaches that God created the world and that as the highlight of his creation, people are made to have a relationship with Him. Despite sin (falling short of God's perfect standard) affecting this relationship, God showed His love by sending His Son, Jesus, to be our Saviour through His perfect life, death on the cross and resurrection. If we ask Him to forgive our sin and commit to following Him, our broken relationship with God can be restored, meaning we can become part of His family.

Doctrinal Statement

The Doctrinal Statement of the Church, which is regarded as a summary of those doctrines commonly held by the Church and is subordinate to Scripture, reads:

  • 3.1 The Scriptures
    The verbal inspiration and total inerrancy of the Holy Scriptures of the Old and New Testaments as originally given by God; their sole-sufficiency and final authority in all matters of faith and practice.
  • 3.2 God
    One God in three persons, the Holy Trinity, Father, Son and Holy Spirit, co-equal, co-eternal, sovereign and active in creation, providence and redemption.
  • 3.3 The Lord Jesus Christ
    The essential deity and perfect humanity of our Lord Jesus Christ, the only mediator between God and men; His virgin birth, real and sinless life and sacrificial death on the cross as the only substitute for sinners; His burial, bodily resurrection and ascension to heaven to the right hand of God; His high priestly ministry for all who come to God through him and His personal return.
  • 3.4 The Holy Spirit
    The work of the Holy Spirit in regenerating the sinner and indwelling, sanctifying and empowering the believer.
  • 3.5 The Devil
    The personality of the devil; his evil activity and final doom.
  • 3.6 Humanity
    The creation of humanity, male and female, in the image of God, equal in value and complementary in role; the creation ordinance of marriage as the lifelong union of one man and one woman; the entrance of sin through Adam's disobedience; the fallen and totally depraved state of all humanity; their subjection to God's wrath and condemnation; their responsibility to repent and believe the gospel.
  • 3.7 Justification
    The justification of the sinner by God's grace alone through faith alone in the atoning merits of our Lord Jesus Christ alone; the eternal security of the believer.
  • 3.8 The Church
    The church, the body of Christ, made up of those drawn from every tribe, language, people and nation throughout history who are added to it by the work of the Holy Spirit and the exercise of faith in the Lord Jesus Christ; the scriptural expression of the church in the world as the local company of baptised believers gathered under the headship of Christ for worship, fellowship, instruction and evangelism, which God has commissioned the church to do by preaching the gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ, by all means consistent with the nature of the Gospel and that God commands all people everywhere to repent and believe on the Lord Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of sins; in separation from all systems of belief that do not adhere to the Scriptures and are unfaithful to the gospel of salvation by grace alone; the ordinances of baptism as commanded by the New Testament and the Lord's supper as instituted by our Lord Jesus Christ: baptism being the immersion of believers on profession of their faith in the Lord Jesus Christ and a symbol of their cleansing and identification with Him in His death, burial and resurrection; the Lord's supper being a remembrance of Christ until He comes for those believers who, from the work of grace in their hearts, show forth fruits of righteousness and a renewal of commitment to Him; the offices of elder and deacon; the gifts of evangelist and pastor-teacher; the priesthood of all believers and their unity in the Body of Christ; the separation of church and state.
  • 3.9 The Future State
    The unconditional immortality of the soul; the resurrection of the body; the eternal joy in heaven of the believer; the conscious eternal punishment in hell of those who die impenitent.
  • 3.10 Christian Behaviour
    The responsibility of all believers to obey and serve the Lord and to live self-controlled, upright and godly lives; the duty of each church to exercise godly discipline in a loving and caring fashion.
