I am delighted that you found our website. If you are seeking a church community I hope that what you find here online will entice you to give us a try in person.
If you do, you will find a diverse bunch of folk who are trying to make a difference for Jesus in this time and place. We have come from east and west, from north and south, including England, Scotland, India, China, Ghana, Madagascar, Pakistan, Guyana, Brazil. Our theological roots are in the Protestant Reformation and particularly in John Calvin and John Knox. We sing with gusto. We laugh a lot. And we know how to do food really well!
We understand faith to be a journey rather than a destination, a relationship rather than a commodity. Our own experience has taught us that following Jesus is no easy thing, but it is far easier when we attempt it as part of a community rather than all on our own.
We are known for the architecture of our sanctuary and we worship in “the belly of the fish.” But we also have a long heritage of commitment to outreach, mission and interfaith cooperation. Individually and corporately we are involved in a broad range of activities of compassion and social justice, seeking to rebuild creation.
We don’t always agree on issues, but we work hard at respecting each other – even and especially when we disagree. We honor the truth that “God so loved the world” and so we seek to be an inclusive, welcoming congregation for “the world” – all its races, genders, sexual orientations, ages, nationalities and ethnicities, economic situations and abilities.
We would love to add your energy and ideas, your experiences and your hopes, to our mix and invite you to share this journey with us!
