New Church Hemel

church that connects

about us

Our vision is to be a church that connects...

with God...

in the Word through our commitment to anointed preaching & our value of scripture

in worship that draws us close to God's Father heart for us

with one another...

through the quality of our relationships with one another

by building a church family that loves deeply and communicates carefully

with the world...

by reaching out in a relevant way to a hurting world that needs to encounter the wonderful, life-giving, life-changing message of Jesus Christ.

 

the building blocks on which we build church are

Hospitality

A warm welcome to our house from the very beginning has been foundational to our being church together.

Teaching

Inspiring, empowered, Biblical teaching is essential for us to grow in our faith. Listen carefully to God's Word and we will hear Him speaking to us.

Worship

We have a passion to meet together in God's presence and to draw close to Him in worship and so see our hearts & lives shaped by being part of a worshipping community.

Pastoral care

We aim to meet people's pastoral needs. In a caring environment people flourish.

Growing gifting

The church comes to maturity when each person is growing in the gifts God has given them. When each part does its work, we will grow.

Leadership

Leaders seek to set a good example, fulfil responsibilities, envision & guide people into God's best.

Communication

Good communication keeps us healthy and promotes engagement & understanding. We show we value one another when we listen & respond thoughtfully.

Excellence

We seek to do everything in a spirit of excellence.

Our hope

With God's help this vision & these building blocks are shaping our reality. Our prayer as we live these values is to experience a visitation from God that will change our lives, our community and our world.

No words can fully describe the life of any church but it is with this vision & these values that we would like to extend our welcome to you to join us at one of our services.

Bless you.
