Here at St Paul’s our vision is the formation of cityshapers – a people shaped by God to shape the city.
We believe that God has called each of us to influence throughout the city – whether through demonstrating love, relieving need, leading in development, bringing reform or bearing witness. We are all called to influence for good.
We are passionate about God’s reputation growing. We want him to be famous. Known because of his love, mercy, compassion, goodness, greatness and might. We want all of our lives to reflect his glory.
Salt & Light
We want to be a people marked by our unity. A place where young and old, male and female, rich and poor, come together from every race and background. This community is one where all have a part to play. It’s a community with a purpose. A salt and light people who host God’s presence and release his restoring power into every corner of our city.
Shaped by God
God is committed to our transformation: by His Spirit He is shaping us like Jesus. Cityshapers are people of character, growing in wisdom for life in the city – confident in their calling, encouraged in their gifts, eager and equipped to step out in faith.
To Shape the City
God invites his people to seek the peace and prosperity of the city. It is our environment. God loves our city. When God’s purpose for his creation is finally fulfilled it will look like a city. In the light of that heavenly city we live hopefully in this city. Every one of God’s people, whatever sphere they find themselves in, can influence for justice and for peace.
As a church, we are committed to pursuing Jesus wholeheartedly and to seek His will for our lives. Whether it is through using your gifts to serve on a team, give regularly, or join our weekly prayer meeting, we are so grateful for all you do to make this vision possible.
We hope you will join us as we are shaped by God to shape our city.
