We welcome everyone, to walk with Jesus everyday, and see restoration everywhere.
We believe that every person is uniquely made in the image of God and is deserving of being embraced, valued and honoured as such.
We believe that true discipleship is a whole-hearted and whole life commitment to follow Jesus, and so is an everyday living out of His values.
We believe that Jesus came to share God’s love everywhere and to establish more of the life of heaven on earth. He started with those most in need, and worked out from there, and we seek to do the same.
To see as many people as possible, from every walk of life, encounter God’s love and goodness and to have the opportunity to be reconciled in relationship with Him.
To enable people to find healing for physical, emotional or spiritual pain and to grow into living out their God-given design
To positively contribute into the lives of others, living an outward-focussed and generous life, and so bringing community transformation.
We encourage everyone to be part of a Restore group, which provides a place of belonging, shared life and spiritual growth.
We believe that everyone has God-given gifts, and we grow most when we use these to serve others. Each Restore location has a vision to reach its local community and we encourage everyone to get involved in this mission.
We gather both in individual locations and also as a whole church to celebrate all that God is doing in and through us as Restore, and for vision and worship.
The DNA of Restore is drawn from Isaiah 61, which Jesus used to define His mission in Luke 4: 18-19
