About us

We are a group of people keen to see the Gospel thrive in our own lives and in the lives of those around us.

We value:

  • God above all

  • Sound teaching of the Bible

  • Prayer 

  • Spreading the good news

  • Spiritual growth

  • Generosity

  • Being real 

We don't much like:

  • Christian jargon

  • Sloppy thinking about God

  • Being boring

  • Wasting our lives

  • Destructive cultural trends and practices
