What makes us tick ...
We are both formed and informed by our Methodist roots. The scallop shell that symbolised pilgrimage in Wesley's day suggests to us an ever-evolving understanding of the Gospel as we journey into fresh understandings - led by God's grace in 21st century Aotearoa New Zealand.
John Wesley emphasised the close bond between being and doing; he believed that personal transformation and social action
went hand-in-hand. Our theology, beliefs and faith are informed, and in turn transformed, by our everyday lives.
We believe that:
~ God created all things with a loving purpose.
~ Jesus, who is the Christ, is the human expression of God's love at work.
~ We are born so that we may discover God's love, alive and active within each
one of us.
~ We are called to recognise the inherent dignity and worth of every human being
~ The good news of the Gospel offers hope, wholeness and well-being for all.
~ There is no right living unless it is lived out in care for others and creation.
~ Everyone is uniquely gifted by God and called to share those gifts in loving service.
We are a community of vulnerable people, on a journey of hope, inquiry and faith.
Come and walk with us!
