What we believe
Belief in God as Father, Son and Holy Spirit is at the heart of our faith. Christians believe that Jesus is God’s Son. Jesus reveals to us that God is our Father, and that God is available to us through the Holy Spirit.
You won’t ever be asked if you completely understand all this. But you are asked whether you believe and trust. This is called faith. It is a different sort of knowledge. It is the knowledge of being known and loved, and of loving in return.
The Christian faith is not a human invention. There are signs of God’s existence and handiwork in creation for anyone to read (Acts 14.15–17). But we believe in the way we do because God has come to seek us out and has made himself known to us.
'The most important decision any person can ever make is to become a disciple of Jesus Christ. It’s the best thing anyone can do.'
Archbishop Justin Welby

Going to Church and Worship
As Christians we believe the full purpose of our lives is to praise God. As we do so we begin to recognise more and more that everything comes from God and to feel even more thankful and full of praise.
