“The only thing that counts is faith expressing itself through love”
(The letter to the Galatians, in the Bible)
Church is a community where love is the expression – in words and actions – of our faith in God, who is making everything new.
Our desire is to help people to become fully devoted followers of Jesus, to create space for the powerfully loving presence of God and to serve our neighbourhoods and world with justice and kindness.
We aim to make this happen through forming communities of friends who can share life and faith together, as well as creatively using room, resources and relationships to take care of people who live around us.
Our vision for Rising Brook is to see people go on a lifelong journey:
Discover who Jesus is and who you are.
Finding some others to journey with.
Make a difference in the world together.
Clusters within Rising Brook are the place where we find community and a sense of mission. They are groups of varying sizes each with its own identity and vision. The clusters provide a safe place for us to invite our friends and family to. See a full list of our Clusters.
Within each of these clusters are small groups which meet to go deeper with God and with each other; a safe place to grow and develop as a Christian. If you would like to join a cluster, please contact us.
Young people are one of the most important parts of who we are at Rising Brook. We believe that children and youth should be given the opportunity to know God personally in their lives and that our families have a crucial role to play in growing faith. Our team of staff and volunteers work hard to put on a range of different programmes for young people of all ages. Learn more…
Action is the expression of our faith in seeing the rule and reign of God impact people’s lives through justice, healing and compassion.
Anyone can join in and be involved in serving in at any of our locations each day, providing food, household items and DIY for our Community in Actions projects, in volunteering with one of our local associated ministries in the town and in taking part in work with partners in other parts of the world.
