Here you will find a community of joyful and generous hearts, an extended family of people of all ages and walks of life – all of us seeking and searching after God together. Every week we gather, in worship and out of it, to break bread, to explore God’s Word through scripture, to share stories of God in our lives and to be Jesus’ people in the world. Come join us on our journey!

We hope this website tells you something about us and our path. But the best way to find out more is to come and see. Join us for worship or for any of the other activities and ministries listed here – or contact us to ask questions. We look forward to meeting you along our shared path.
