  • To love and care for each other.
  • To share faith in Christ.

  • We listen to what is said as addressed personally to us.
  • We are aware and considerate of others in church whose needs are different from ours.

To love and care for each other

  • We are friendly and outgoing towards others in church: we find out each others names; we speak to those we do not yet know.

  • We invite friends, family and others we know to join us in worship and church activities.
