We are a family of friendly churches in the north Rutland area and our vision is to help everyone in our communities to:


We're passionate about our faith but we're also passionate about Rutland and the people who live in it.  We have some beautiful church buildings to meet in but we never lose sight of the fact that the church is actually the amazing network of people who meet in those buildings.  

We see ourselves as people on a shared journey and we try to live in a way that meets the two key commandments in the bible; to love God and to love other people.  

We keep in mind that none of us is perfect and we accept each other whatever baggage we bring with us.  In this way we try to live out of the grace that we know God extends to each one of us through Jesus Christ.  

If you're looking for connection, meaning and purpose in your life then come and join us on the journey.
