I’m New

Welcome Letter from Lead Pastors

We hope you feel at home with us. We’ve been Pastors of the team here at SWLV for over 30 years after taking up Senior roles from John and Eleanor Mumford in 2008. We want to do all we can to help connect you to the life of the church here.

As a church, our heart is to respond to Jesus’ words from Matthew 22 and Matt 28 – the Greatest Commandment, ‘to love the Lord your God with all your heart, mind and strength and to love your neighbour as yourself’ – and the Great Commission ‘…go and make disciples of all nations, baptising them in the name of the Father, teaching them to obey everything I have commanded and surely I am with you to the very end of the age’

When we first and foremost passionately pursue Jesus, when we love God in everything and with everything, the stuff of Matt 28 becomes the natural overflow. We hope that you will join us on the journey.

We’d love to invite you to our next Welcome Lunch, Connect Online or Discovery Course. All designed to give you a space to get to know us, ask questions and meet some of our staff. We look forward to meeting you!

As always,
Neil + Kate
