We are a congregation of all ages and stages who believe the church is made up of people and that relationships should be at the heart of everything we do. Our aim, as God's people in this place, is to serve the Lord Jesus Christ, to make his name and love known as widely as possible and to seek to serve the community in which God has placed us.


We seek to give a sincere welcome to all who come to worship with us, whether regulars, first-timers or visitors. Our aim is to provide an atmosphere where people feel comfortable and relaxed in their worship and our hope is that everyone will feel welcome and be enriched and encouraged by their time with us. If you are in Houston on a Sunday we would be delighted to see you. If you live nearby, we encourage you to visit us and learn more about life in this church.
