Church and Community

Church and Community

God’s mission in the world is the reconciliation and renewal of the whole of creation. The church is a community of followers of Jesus in one place, exploring how they are invited to participate in God’s mission. Attributed to many different writers is the catchphrase “It is not the church of God that has a mission in the world but the God of mission who has a church in the world.”

To this end we hope to engage in our community by “Growing in Spirit” and “Reaching out in love.” We are asking God how we can be ‘good neighbour’ in our community. The “Church in the Trees” was built on 1997 as a community facility. We currently host a mixture of our own events and programs alongside hiring the space.

Southlakes U3A
