Over recent years we’ve felt inspired to shape our church life around the message from the Old Testament book of Isaiah, chapter 61 where we sense that the Spirit of the Lord is upon us to proclaim good news into the brokenness of the community.  We think of ourselves as Living and Proclaiming God’s Restoring Love, with a keen desire to link up with other local churches in to seek oneness in our shared witness.
