Vision and Values

Our Vision

Living, Learning and Growing Together

Through living, learning and growing together we nurture each individual’s uniqueness and potential so that they may enjoy life in all its fullness.

John 10:10

Core Values

Our Christian values are: Celebrating Life, Good Choices, Friendship, Perseverance, Peace and Love.

Each one of these underpins our CORE vision. Love is the value that all of the others are based upon and therefore is our main core value. In the Bible we learn that “Love is patient and kind. Love is not jealous or boastful or proud or rude. It does not demand its own way. It is not irritable, and it keeps no record of being wronged. It does not rejoice about injustice but rejoices whenever the truth wins out. Love never gives up, never loses faith, is always hopeful, and endures through every circumstance.” (1 Corinthians 13:4-7)
