Mission Statement

St Paul’s prayer for us today:

‘Out of our infinite glory, may he give you the power, through his Spirit, for your hidden self to grow strong, so that Christ may live in your hearts through faith, and then planted in love and built on love, you will, with all the saints have strength to grasp the breadth and length, the height and depth, until, knowing the love of Christ, which is beyond all knowledge, you are filled with the utter fullness of God.'
