Our Mission Statement 

We believe we are called by God to witness to the truth of the Gospel.
We do this:
●    By maintaining our chapel as a centre of study in which the word of God is proclaimed and as a centre of prayer and fellowship open to all.
●    By working in the community by visiting and promoting community activities thus demonstrating the love of God in Christ for all.
●     By demonstrating in our daily lives that the way of Jesus is a more excellent way.
●    By offering friendship and fellowship to all, including other Christians, and becoming involved in ecumenical events and projects.
