vision

Then Jesus came to them and said, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptising them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.”

 

Our mission statement at Freedom Church can be summed up as "transforming those who don't know Jesus into wholehearted disciples who do." This has been a long standing mission statement at Freedom Church for over 18 years!

 

At Freedom Church we are passionate about relationship and discipleship, walking alongside people in the highs and lows of life, equipping people to follow Jesus with their whole hearts throughout all that life throws at us. The way we carry out our mission is through our vision.

Our Vision is threefold - Community, Presence and Resource (or C.P.R for short!) Take a read to find out a bit more...

community - the heart of the community

 

We have a have a strong value on community at Freedom. We believe that Jesus is God's answer to the brokenness in the world and the church is God's vehicle in which people discover his goodness. We do our very best to love our community in fun, creative and beautiful ways so that we truly do become the heart of the community; a place and a people whom our friends, family and work colleagues just love to be around!

We outwork our 'Community' part of the vision in the following ways - 

  • Freedom Cafe

  • Youth Cafe

  • Tots Soft Play Sessions

  • CAP Centre

  • Town Pastors

  • Partnership with Mencap

  • Kintsugi Hope

  • Alpha

  • Honey Pot Dementia Cafe

  • Community Events e.g. Fireworks

presence - a place where god dwells

Being a people of presence is at the core of who we are at Freedom Church. All we do is centred around prayer as our starting point and nothing we do is without involving Holy Spirit in the midst.

We are a church who love to worship! For us there is nothing better than gathering together, whether just one or two of us or the whole Freedom family and praising Jesus!

We believe that an effective church is a church who pursues the presence of the living God, the one who wants to work in all the same ways as we read in the bible. It's all about being 'naturally supernatural and supernaturally natural.' 

We outwork our 'Presence' part of the vision in the following ways -

  • Coffee and Testimony 

  • Monday Bible Study

  • House on a Hill Worship Collective

  • Worship and Word

  • Small Expressions

  • Youth Life

  • Muddy and Wild

  • Prayer Connect

 
resource - a centre of resource

Over the years Freedom Church has been a sending and resourcing church. We have pioneered many local ministries including Town pastors and Open the Book and our mandate to be a resource continues to be a strong arm of our vision here at Freedom. Whether it's offering our building to local businesses, leadership training or overseas mission, Freedom is committed to be a resourcing church as far and wide as God calls us to be.

We outwork our 'Resource' part of the vision in the following ways - 

  • Kintsugi Wellbeing Groups

  • CAP Debt Centre

  • Building Hire

  • Town Pastors

  • Legacy Leadership Training

  • A2B - Albania

  • New Day United
