Our vision is in creating an open, inclusive and engaging sanctuary for all; regardless of social standing, sexuality, race or religion.
We respect both our heritage and that of the traditional custodians of this land, while shaping our future through excellence in music, education and worship.
Our impact is our legacy. We aspire to establish trust with our community by presenting our message of inclusion, grace and faith.
