We all have questions about the meaning of life, our purpose, and whether or not there is a God.
These are the kind of questions that people have debated and discussed throughout history. Millions of people over those years have tested the Christian faith and found that it makes sense.
- We believe that there is a God who created us and loves us.
- We believe that Jesus was uniquely both a human being and divine, and that his death means we can all be offered forgiveness for those things we do wrong.
- We believe that a new life is possible, with a sense of meaning and purpose that can't be matched by wealth or possessions.
- We believe that the Church is a community of flawed individuals who have realised that they need that help from God - our churches are not gatherings of good people, but a community of bad people who have to continually seek God's forgiveness.
