We believe that people are made for community: face-to-face, messy, beautiful community. Our vision is to plant and grow a vibrant community in Carlisle where lives are shared and love is put into practice, with Jesus as our inspiration.

On Sunday evenings at 5pm we do a variety of things. Some weeks we gather for worship, teaching, prayer and a communion meal in the Fusehill St campus chapel. Some weeks we gather in our Missional Communities to deepen our faith. And some weeks our Missional Communities run quirky events to reach out to others. Follow us on facebook, twitter and instagram to keep up!
We encourage everyone involved to make sure that they are practically blessing others each week.
We encourage everyone involved to be active in opening their homes and lives to other people.
We encourage everyone involved to invest in building great friendships – new and old.
