At the heart of the Brookside family is a desire to be a community of people who love God and His presence, and who wish to make His love and goodness tangible to the people we live and work amongst.
As you look through these pages, we hope you'll get a sense of who we are, and the things that are important to us.
If you have any questions, or would like to chat further, drop us an email or give us a call. We'd love to hear from you.
Two passages from the Bible that continue to inspire us:
The Word became flesh and blood, and moved into the neighbourhood. We saw the glory with our own eyes, the one-of-a-kind glory, like Father, like Son, generous inside and out, true from start to finish. John 1: 14 (The Message)
"Teacher, which is the greatest commandment in the law?" Jesus replied: "Love the Lord your God with all your heart and all your soul and with all your mind. This is the first and greatest commandment. And the second is like it: Love your neighbour as yourself." Matthew 22:36-39 (NIV)

40 days of giving back, doing good and living generously. 40acts is a generosity challenge, which invites you to do Lent a bit differently. During the forty days of Lent (Sundays aren’t counted), 40acts participants will be invited to take part in forty simple acts of generosity - for example, thank someone you don't know, or take someone breakfast in bed. Resources full of simple, creative ideas to help make Lent more meaningful are available for families, or individuals.
