A warm welcome

What sort of a church are we? 

 

We seek to be a ‘Culture’ of Grace’ community: with foundational

values and beliefs which determine why we do what we do,

our priorities, how we spend our time, how we relate. 

These are expressed in our ‘grace arrow below.

* We are all accepted by God and each other no matter what.

* There is no pressure to conform in any way but rather a freedom to

  be ourselves.

* We recognise we are on a journey which can be hard and

 difficult at times.

* We help one another grow in our relationship with God, others and ourselves.

* We believe it is important to be real and acknowledge the difficulties as well as celebrating the good things.

Ministering God’s love, justice, and peace in tangible and relevant ways in our wider community and beyond is  

 important.

In harmony with ‘Count Everyone In’ [www.counteveryonein.org.uk] we have a group of about ten adults who have learning difficulties. These people are fully integrated, accepted and supported, and make an active and beneficial contribution to the life of the church.

 

As a Baptist church the final authority for Church Government rests with the congregation.                                                                                                                                                

* We are aware that issues or conflicts will arise, and we seek to address these in a Godly way.

* We allow these issues to be shared and not ignored or swept under the carpet.

* We respect everyone’s feelings and opinions and encourage honest sharing.

* We listen - to one another, to everything, to motives, to evidence, to scripture.

* We recognize that sometimes relationships are more important than the issue.

* We respect leaders who lead with wisdom and sensitivity, who make the church as fully aware of things as 

   possible and help us to weigh things together.

* We refrain from becoming too conclusive and dogmatic or from allowing our individual prejudice to affect our

   attitudes and actions.
