What is a church?

Some of the church at our recent weekend away.

The concept of ‘church’ is often misunderstood today. Our ideas about it may have been coloured by bad childhood experiences of pale imitations of the real thing. Or maybe by media headlines about scandals or stand-up comics’ cynicism and contempt. Maybe you think of a faceless institution or a club for self-righteous and judgmental people.

The reality is different.

A church – in the sense that the Bible means it – is simply a family of people from all walks of life who have been drawn together by a shared experience; they are thankful for God’s forgiveness and love and want to follow and learn from Jesus Christ so that we can grow to become the people he wants us to be.

We’d love you to join us…
