We come from a wide variety of backgrounds with many different experiences of life but we are drawn together by our common faith in God, and for our love for each other and for the world that God created. We know that we are not perfect and that we make mistakes but we have all known the grace of God in our lives, and his forgiveness and power to change us. We try to live as a hopeful people in a world that is often losing its sense of hope. We also recognise that this is not always easy. We believe that Jesus coming into the world has changed everything and that this is good news – the gospel! We believe that individual lives, friendships, families and communities can be transformed by the love and presence of God in the world.
