Our Mission logo (ourmission.png)

In response to the Father's love for us and for all people, we desire

  • to know Jesus and to follow his ways
  • to help others in our community and beyond to know him and
  • to grow together as disciples

living in the power of the Holy Spirit.


From this Mission Statement our 5 year rolling plan will develop
and be reviewed regularly to ensure we remain focussed on the calling God has given us.

Our Mission Statement

The phrase, 'Knowing Jesus, making him known' was adopted as a summary of our Mission Statement in 2016. The full version is on the main part of the page on the right. Download and/or print a copy (pdf format).

Note. This will download an A4 page which can be printed and cut into 4 individual A6 copies. (You may need to set your printer to print landscape.) Prop one up on your mantelpiece, put one on your desk, use them as bookmarks.... Keep reminding yourself of what mission is about and why we are here!


We like to put the words 'Knowing Jesus, making him known' in the form of a cross (see below and right) because mission is 'cross-shaped'. 'Knowing Jesus' is the 'upright' - our relationship with Jesus, his love for us and our growing love for him - which supports and inspires the 'cross-piece' - our reaching out to others to show his love for them and to help them to know him too.

'Our mission' is not really ours - it is God's mission, God through Jesus and the Holy Spirit reaching out to us in love and, though us, to others. We continue to work out the ways this is expressed in our life as a church.
