The Parish of St Leonard’s desires to be a vibrant, faithful, and missional Christian community that fully relies on God.
We Revive ourselves in Christ by cultivating a Christian community in which believers are challenged and encouraged to grow every day to be more like our Saviour. We hope to see this community characterized by vibrant worship, strong biblical teaching, and a powerful loving community.
(Ephesians 5:1-2, Romans 12:1-2)
We Reach others for Christ by being a Church that looks outside its four walls, obeying the command Jesus gave to us to go and make disciples. We want to actively engage friends, neighbours, and community members, seeking to expose them to the love that God has for this world, inviting them to the blessing of true life that has been made available to us by Christ’s death on the cross.
(Matthew 28:19-20, 1 John 4:9-10)
We Renew our world through Christ by acknowledging that He has empowered us to be His hands in this community. We desire to be a church that fully relies on God, that looks for his guidance and provision through prayer, that trusts in his empowerment given to us by the Holy Spirit, and believes that the only true hope for our community rests in what has been done for humanity through Christ’s death and resurrection.
(Ephesians 2:1-10, John 14:12-14)
