We are Christians who worship God in a fellowship that is run under Bap[tist Principles. You may need to know what Baptists believe. There is an ongoing discussion about whether churches should totally immerse a person when they are old enough to understand this commitment or to Christen a child shortly after birth.
Baptists believe scripture teaches that a person should be baptised after they have made a personal decision to follow Jesus and so to be a member of our church a person must have followed that process. However, all people are very welcome to worship with us.
The Leadership Team is responsible for the running of the church as well as seeking Gods guidance for the way forward. However there are quarterly held church business meetings. where members are kept informed of general matters and all major descisions are discussed and if a vote is taken each member's vote carries equal weight. The result of any vote taken will be the deciding factor in what the church does or does not do.
