WHo are we?

We are a friendly community of people made up from all ages and backgrounds who are committed to living with Jesus as Lord.

We know that we don’t live up to God’s holy standards and so need his forgiveness and grace. We are passionate about learning  together from the bible about what it means to live with Jesus as Lord and encouraging each another in living that learning out.

We love our town and want to see Stockport flourish. We believe that the most effective way for this to happen is for the people of Stockport to hear who Jesus is, what he has done and to come to understand why that is extraordinary news for them. As such we are keen to welcome anyone to join with us as we seek to make Jesus, his cross and resurrection and his teaching clear and relevant to all people.
