Our Church here fills many different
roles. The Church building is a place for people
who have come to know God -Father, Son and Holy Spirit - to gather together and worship Him, and to be together in His presence.The building serves too, as a place where the good news of Jesus Christ is poured out from, the place where the grace
of God for our community of Burnfoot is carried out by those who come to worship.It serves also as a place
of refuge and safety for the wearied and worried, for the lost and alone, for the broken, bereaved and abandoned. It is a
place of healing, and restoration. A place where those who are mature in faith and those whose faith is intermittent, can
come and be filled by God, and enabled to go and live.
Church, however, is not just the building. The Church is the people of faith who worship, who bring the good news and grace
of God out (of that building) into the community of Burnfoot.It
is the Church - the people, who share refuge and safety to the lost, the lonely, the broken, bereaved and abandoned. And it
is alongside the people of the Church that God brings His healing and restoration to any who need it. This is the great
thing for us who know God - to know that those whose faith is small or shaky can come and taste and see that God is good.
Let us invite you to come and see. The God of all peace, and love, and hope, and life, bless you today...
