St Mary's Church, Billingshurst

Vision

The church is not a building - it is a community of people who want to worship God and share in the community Jesus’ love and message of hope. The vision of St Mary's is to be a vibrant community where lives are transformed. The aim is for everyone to be involved (at services, in Small Groups and serving), everyone giving and everyone praying.

Values

Prayerful

Prayer is the core foundation of the church as it strengthens and unifies our relationship with God and with each other. So we need to be a prayerful church.

Accepting and Caring

Our acceptance must be seen in our Christ-likeness in welcoming and responding without judgment to all people. In obedience to Jesus' command to love one another we reach out in love to everyone the Spirit puts in our path.

Truthful

Jesus is God's truth and we must aim to live our lives in the light of that truth, and draw others into it.
