We believe God gives everyone abilities and we see it as part of our work to encourage and develop those abilities. We do this to allow everyone to live their life to the full and as part of that, take the fullest part in worshipping God together.

We have an elected leadership team which consists of a Minister and a team of Deacons.  The leadership team work together to seek God’s will for the Church, and each member coordinates a particular area of God’s work here.
