Who Are We?
We belong to a church called the Community of Christ. We have been established in Sutton-in Ashfield since 1905 and have been on the Oval, Carsic Estate since 1964.
Community of Christ is a worldwide organisation with churches in over forty countries in all five continents.
Our mission statement is
We proclaim Jesus Christ and promote communities of JOY, HOPE, LOVE, and PEACE.
We believe that the message of Jesus is vital and that love, joy, hope and peace are all desperately needed in our world. And so:-
We seek to offer:
A place where you can find friendship, where everyone is valued as an individual, and where in times of need you can find security, care, and support.
A community where the message of Jesus is the focus of our worship, learning and caring, providing genuine opportunities for spiritual growth.
A community that values all cultures, all ages, and celebrates the rich diversity of human life.
A place where there are opportunities to serve Jesus Christ in a meaningful way by helping others and promoting peace.
