We are a progressive Christian community following a path of love and grace and compassion. We value both the head and the heart, and we invite you to join us as we grow
in our own ability to show God’s love to a world which needs care and hope.
We believe that God has given gifts to us all and our task is to discover those gifts
and use them to be who God has called us to be – not who someone else wants us to be. 
We are an inclusive, joyful congregation of witnesses to the life of Christ,
and so we welcome all people to live in the light of God’s love.
