The Gospel is at the heart of who we are as Christians and what we do as a congregation. Our hope is firmly rooted in our risen Saviour Jesus Christ who we learn about in the Bible. We also learn in the Bible that our greatest need is to have our sins forgiven and that we could not secure this forgiveness by ourselves. This is why Jesus came into the world, and it is through his life, death and resurrection that a new relationship with God is now possible.  Entering into this new relationship is a life-changing and life-defining moment for us all. It is amazing that God has provided for us in this way and it reveals his love and grace towards us. This good news of full and free forgiveness of sins has been the core message (Gospel) of the Church ever since Jesus came into the world. With a personal faith in Jesus our sins are forgiven. Forever.
