Collective is an inclusive church community of friends and family, exploring faith and sharing life as we learn to follow Jesus.
THE WORD "COLLECTIVE," IN ITS ADJECTIVE FORM, SPEAKS OF SOMETHING THAT IS SHARED OR DONE BY ALL MEMBERS OF A GROUP.
THE CHURCH IS NOT A "PLACE WHERE" BUT A "PEOPLE WHO." THE BIBLE DESCRIBES THE CHURCH AS BEING MEMBERS OF ONE BODY WHOSE HEAD IS CHRIST. EACH OF US HAS A PLACE AND A ROLE TO PLAY SO THAT THE BODY CAN BE HEALTHY AND FUNCTION AS IT SHOULD, CARRYING OUT ITS PURPOSE IN THE WORLD.
Our lives are often in constant motion. At Collective, we hope to pause, gather, and truly see one another. We meet regularly at the table—a place of nourishment, centred on relationship where space never runs out.
Collective exists to point beyond ourselves, inviting the people of our towns and villages into a living encounter with the person of Jesus through our shared life together—to be a sign and a foretaste of God’s plan for creation.
We are a collective of people from all walks and stages of life. An eclectic gathering of young and old, coming together to explore new ways of joining God’s story in our towns and villages. Our stories, backgrounds, and interests are varied. But we are held together by one common bond:
We believe that God’s grace in Jesus is the key that unlocks all of life.
So wherever you are on your spiritual journey, whether you are committed to following Jesus Christ, are skeptical, or are just mildly curious about Christianity, we welcome you.
