Vision and Values

Our Vision:

That by God’s grace, Immanuel Church will be a vibrant reformed church in Brentford, with a passion to plant further churches in West London, for the glory of God.

Our Values:

Dependent on God’s Grace

This will be seen in our worship, as we adore our gracious Triune God; in our teaching as the word of God’s grace will be at the centre of all we do; in our commitment to prayer; and in our welcome and compassion for outsiders. As those who know our own dependence upon God’s grace, we will be willing to admit our own helplessness, and offer grace to others.

Interdependent in God’s Family

Western culture stresses independence, and equates maturity with self-sufficiency. In contrast, God adopts us into His family by grace, and we grow as Christians together because Christian maturity is never individualistic. It is always about the whole church together (Ephesians 4:10-16). Our interdependence is also expressed in giving and receiving hospitality and mutual discipleship.

Involved in Brentford

We love Brentford and want to be involved in this place in Jesus’ name. We do not all live in Brentford, but we all seek to build relationships with individuals here, and together to serve in the community. We hope by God’s grace to be salt and light influencing Brentford..

Engaged in God’s World Mission

We have the privilege of being part of what God is doing around the world. So we pray for, and give to, mission work. We will also train up leaders, and work towards planting another church in the next 5 years.
