We are a small congregation with a big mission from God.
In March 2010 we refocussed our life to make our church a place unchurched people would love to attend.
We moved our main teaching to a serious Bible Study on Wednesday's from 7.30 til 9.00 and made Sunday morning (10.45) focussed on issues based teaching series of 3 or 4 weeks.
Essentially we aim to take features from weekly magazines (relationships, money, dating, parenting etc) and show what the Bible says that makes it relevant to the subject.
We believe that people need to see the relevance of the Bible for their life before they believe it is God's word.
We are leafletting our community monthly with adverts and door knocking systematically to invite people to join us.
Over the last year, we have developed our First Sunday each month as an intergenerational activity event which sees a 50% rise in attendance.
We run a tea shop which raises support for the crypt and have a partnership with a Church in San Salvador where we have sent mission team.

I found the project/churches page on the Network Leeds site really useful as I was looking for projects with a social action focus
