We are a village church which has mixed congregations, looking towards offering a variety of worship styles so that there is something for everyone. Our vision, discerned by our whole congregation is:
To become a church which offers relevant, varied worship and supportive home groups, while undertaking practical action which meets the needs of families and others in the church and community. We will do this in collaboration with the Methodist church where appropriate, and communicate it effectively as widely as possible.
We are working towards our vision guided by our mission statement which is:
Reaching into the community through worship, teaching, action and caring.
We are currently exploring an ecumenical partnership with our brothers and sisters at Copmanthorpe Methodist Church. While we have this vision we recognise that we are not there yet, but we continue to work towards it, while being open to God’s guidance and prompting.
OUR PURPOSE – To be a focus of worship and witness for Jesus.
OUR MISSION – To reach into the community through worship, teaching, action and caring.
