Rooted in God

Our relationship with God is the foundation of all we do.
We want to follow Jesus Christ and become more like him.
We listen to God and are guided and empowered by his Spirit.We do this through reading the Bible, prayer and worship.
We want to share the good news of Jesus Christ with all people, believing he is the only way
to eternal life and he has the power to transform our lives.

Growing as a family

We want everyone, of all ages and backgrounds, to feel welcome at Parklands Community
We believe everyone should be treated with respect, kindness and love.
As we share our lives together, we want to build true friendships with one another
Recognising that we all have questions, we seek to be a supportive community to all who
are on a journey of faith.

Flourishing with our communities

We believe that God wants the best for our communities of Locking Parklands, Flowerdown,
Locking Grove and beyond.
Working alongside other local groups, we want to play our part in seeing all who live, work
and play here, flourish and thrive.
We seek to provide opportunities for people to get to know each other, develop friendships
and foster a positive community spirit.
We want to see God’s love at work in every area of life.
