View how to maintain your regular giving for the work of our church 

We are:

all about following Jesus. We are a community of imperfect people who have experienced the love and forgiveness of a wonderful God.  We are a local expression of God’s eternal and universal church, called to be God’s people who love, worship, glorify, and serve our living King, Jesus Christ;

part of the Assembly of Confessing Congregations of the Uniting Church, joining with other Uniting Church congregations in contending for the Biblical faith: Confessing the Lord Jesus Christ, Proclaiming the Truth and Renewing the Church; and

“evangelical” Christians, which means that Jesus shapes the heart of our worship, the Bible shapes the heart of our life, and the Gospel (the Good News about Jesus) shapes our heart for a broken world.

Our Statement of Faith & Core Values

The Gospel of John

“In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was in the beginning with God. All things were made through him, and without him was not anything made that was made.” (John 1:1-3)

Jesus is the Divine Word. But John wants us to understand not merely Jesus’ person but also his work. John wrote his Gospel “so that we may believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God” (John 20:31). Christ means “Messiah,” or “Saviour.” Jesus the Divine Word came into the world to be the Saving Word.

Our greatest problem is that we are alienated from God because of our sin. Our guilty nature has separated us from God, with no way of repairing this separation ourselves. For this, above all, Jesus is the Word who reveals and provides our only answer. He came to die for our sins that we might be reconciled to God. Jesus said, “The Son of Man must be lifted up, that whoever believes in him may have eternal life” (John 3:15).

The great industrialist Henry Ford once experienced a breakdown on his assembly line that no one could fix. In desperation he called Charlie Steinmetz, the mechanical genius who had designed and built Ford’s plant. Steinmetz came and tinkered for just a few minutes and threw the switch and everything started running again. Days later Ford received a bill for $10,000, a significant sum at the time. Ford wrote back, “Charlie, don’t you think your bill is a little high for just a little tinkering!” So Steinmetz sent back a revised bill: “Tinkering—$10. Knowing where to tinker—$9,990.”

Likewise, Jesus knows how to fix this broken world, because he made it. However, he didn’t come just to do a little tinkering. He fixed the world by shedding his own blood for all our sin. However, he does not present us with a bill. He offers us the free gift of eternal life through faith in him.
