The church is a classic “Church on the Hill” serving generations and generations in the community. As the neighbourhood changed, the Deacon at the time felt the Church needed to start looking beyond its walls for a new mission and meaning of being a church in its changing community. He strongly believes that the location dictated that mission hence deciding to create a ministry for the whole city.
