However they arrive, at whatever stage of life, no matter how planed for or surprising, they completely change our lives. Being a parent is a amazing joy and a monumental responsibility. And in between these it is fraught with worry and anxiety.
As a church family we are realistic and honest about all of the challenges that parenting brings. But we are also hopeful and expectant. We believe in a God who loves us like a good father and who nurtures us like a wonderful mother. And it is within this narrative of being a child of God that we seek to help each other as parents to keep going, to keep praying, to keep investing, to keep guiding and shaping, to keep learning.
We have a vision for every parent to feel increasingly confident
in the love God has for them and for their family that they
choose to align every part of their family life around the
Kingdom of God and the life of Jesus.

We believe in family and we are committed to joining with you in the serious, joyful and challenging task of being a mother or a father. This means more to us that simply putting on children’s or youth groups for your kids to attend, more than making Sunday worship family friendly, more than putting on a holiday club. It means that we believe that God has placed you in your specific family to be who you are with God at your centre. You are the most important people in your children’s lives and we want to support and encourage you in this key role.
We believe in you. But God believed in you first.
