Senior Pastor’s Welcome
For me it is both a lot of fun and an enormous privilege to be part of this vibrant mission focused church, which is committed to Jesus Christ and his kingdom here in South West Christchurch and beyond. I first came to this church community 35 years ago and the people, global heart, concern for the poor and marginalised as well as the worship and teaching of this church have shaped my life ever since.
Our vision is personal – helping people become life-long followers of Jesus – and yet it is also something we live out together, as we form and grow redemptive communities. We want to support individuals and grow a deep sense of ‘we’. So, our goal is to be faithful followers of Jesus who shape thriving vibrant communities; bringing life and creativity, hope and healing.
Supporting this vision are four values: That we grow in our love for God, our love for each other, for ourselves and the world. We do this together, drawing on each other’s support, prayer, insights, gifts and energy.
In partnership with other churches and groups we seek to live out a deep commitment to global mission, to bring positive, Jesus-shaped transformation in our personal lives, and communities; both here and around the world.
Will you join us? Following Jesus in the places we live.
