Our Values

WORSHIP AND SPIRITUALITY : Encounter and creativity

  • We acknowledge our dependence upon God in prayer and look to the Holy Spirit to empower our ministry and transform lives into Christ-likeness .
  • We want to help people encounter God in worship with their whole person ; body, mind, emotions and spirit.
  • We believe in encouraging creativity and participation in worship and we recognise the importance of resources in the different Christian spiritual traditions.

    MISSION : Friendship and respect

  • We understand that being a missionary congregation is central to our identity.
  • We are committed to relational network evangelism and the making of new, genuine friendships with those who are not-yet Christians.
  • We are willing to move out of comfort zones to build bridges into different cultural groupings.

  • JOURNEY OF FAITH : Encouragement

  • We respect the spiritual journey of each person (adult and child) and seek to create environments where people can observe and move at their pace on their journey with Christ.
  • We aim to encourage and nurture disciples , who understand that they are saved for a radical purpose in living for Christ in the world.

    COMMUNITY:Belonging and authenticity

  • In a world of fragmentation , we believe in the importance of creating and maintaining real community ,where people can easily belong.
  • We believe that our life together matters and that how we behave and serve one another is central to the credibility of our Christian message.
  • We regard children as an integral and valued part of our B1 community.
  • TRUTH AND MEANING : Relevance

  • While we seek to understand cultural and worldview changes, we believe that the Gospel of Jesus Christ remains relevant and essential today in every culture.
  • We believe that effective engagement with those influenced by post-modern culture requires new ways of communicating timeless Biblical truth.
