We believe that the good news that is Jesus is to be shared – in words and with actions. For us this is what mission is about. It is about telling people about Jesus and inviting them to receive Jesus as Saviour and Lord, It is about serving other people in practical ways. In short, we desire to make a difference so that people and the world are transformed with Jesus who is good news.
These are some of the ways we are engaged doing mission.

Tayloo Bears are stuffed ‘teddy bears’ that are given to individuals and families that are facing challenging times, perhaps because of some loss or sickness, and need a reminder that God loves them. The Tayloo Bears project began as a memorial to a family member of one of our members that was killed in a car crash.
