  • Be motivated to respond to the needs of one another with patience and wisdom; kindness and perseverance; warmth and resolve

  • Understand ourselves as fully Human and Divine.

Inclusive

We are committed to being a welcoming church where all people are encouraged to participate fully.  We do our best to:

  • Be fully inclusive of all people regardless of ability, age, ethnicity, gender identity, gender, race or sexual orientation

  • Be more accepting and affirming

  • Promote awareness and understanding

  • Work to end discrimination, alienation and ignorance
