Our goal is to foster a Spirit-led community which responds to the needs of its people & neighbours, to live out our mission and vision of becoming a vibrant Christian community which proclaims the Gospel & strives to be the face of Christ in the World.
Grant your faithful, we pray, almighty God, the resolve to run forth
to meet your Christ with righteous deeds at his coming, so that,
gathered at his right hand, they may be worthy to possess the heavenly kingdom.
