At Ivy Church we are all about Jesus. We want to help people find their way back to God and become followers of Jesus, disciples who then share the good news with others so that they become disciples too.
You are always welcome at Ivy.
Wherever you are in your faith journey, we’d love you to join us.
We are focussed on those who are finding their way back to God.
We will take risks for God and step into unknown things in obedience to his call.
We want everything we say and do to be relevant, authentic and accessible.
We are confident in God that he will lead us forward, step by step, whatever the circumstances.
We extend an invitation to everyone, whatever their background and whatever their needs.
We want to enable God's power to be released through God's people to equip us to be all that God has made us to be.
We have highlighted 5 key areas in our walk with God which cover different aspects of being a disciple who disciples others.
How can we discover people far from God and help them discover Jesus?
How can we lead others into a life following Jesus?
How can we help others be devoted to God in community, the bible, worship?
How can we develop others?
How can we send people out to be disciples who make disciples?
We are led by a team of staff and elders, a group of leaders with varied ministry gifts, who together are responsible for the spiritual health and direction of the church.
