At The Project our mission as leaders is to lead the charge on the vision God has given us to be a vibrant community of Jesus followers. We believe our job is to create a welcoming, caring and outward-focussed environment, a place to come, be real and connect to God, where the church family is equipped and empowered to minister to each other and the wider community. We are a small but passionate team who each wear many hats, excited to see how God will grow His church and us!
