CHRISTIAN VALUES

COMMUNITY

With God’s love: We focus on relationships, participation in the community, building character and enabling everyone to live well and flourish together.

“Share the work and share the wealth. And if one falls down – the other helps”

Ecclesiastes 4:9

HOPE 

With God’s love: We enable healing, repair and renewal, coping wisely when things go wrong, widening our horizons, raising aspirations and guiding everyone into ways of fulfilment.

“God says, I know what I am doing. I have it all planned out; plans to take care of you, not abandon you.; plans to give you the future you hope for.” 

Jeremiah 29:11

DIGNITY 

With God’s love: We educate for dignity and respect: celebrating the preciousness of each person, treating each person as a unique creation of God.

“You are blessed when you are content with just who you are – no more – no less”

Matthew 5:5

GENEROSITY

With God’s love: We share time, talents and resources, sometimes in a spirit of sacrifice, to lift spirits, heal hearts, realise dreams and encourage aspiration.

“whoever sows generously will also reap generously”

Corinthians 9:6

FORGIVENESS

With God’s love: We recognise that we all make mistakes; the life and teaching of Jesus shows how our community can be nourished and repaired as we forgive and ask for forgiveness, letting go of grudges, bitterness or anger.

"For if you forgive other people for their offenses, your heavenly Father will also forgive you."

Matthew 6:14

TRUST

With God’s love: We build a culture of openness, honesty and integrity so that everyone is safe, nurtured, noticed and loved.

“May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in him, so you may overflow with hope”

Romans 15:13
