Every Sunday we as a community, send each other out with a simple statement of intent - that we would be the Church in our everyday life - where we live, learn, work and play.

Paul Simon famously wrote and sung the words “I am a Rock, I am an Island” and while 100’s of thousands of people have sung along with him, the simple fact is that it isn’t true.
