Culture has been described as "the way we do things around here!" We want to be a church that is increasingly living out our lives in a way that shows all aspects of God's kingdom. We long to see a more tangible sense of God's love of the Kingdom of God among us and flowing through us into all the community groups we are part of and are reaching with the Good News of Jesus Christ.
As we welcome more of God's Kingdom we are confident that there will be more and more signs of the presence of the King. We love the tangible presence of God, who by The Holy Spirit, moves in power to transform lives and circumstances.
Much of our teaching and learning is focused on helping us to grow a 'Kingdom Culture' across the church, revealed in our daily lives. Click the Kingdom Culture image below to access teaching on Kingdom Culture.
Bill Johnson's book, The Power that changes the World,' is a great book to help us understand what a church full of God's kingdom can be and can do. Bill provokes us to think about the difference between a church full of it's own culture as opposed to a church seeking a kingdom culture.

This, then, is how you should pray:
Our Father in heaven, hallowed be your name, your kingdom come, your will be done, on earth as it is in heaven. Give us today our daily bread. And forgive us our debts, as we also have forgiven our debtors. And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from the evil one. Matthew 6:9-13 (NIV)
But seek first His kingdom and His righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well. Matthew 6:33 (NIV)
