Our vision

Our Vision at The Gap Uniting Church is very simple:

“Growing Life-Long Disciples of Christ”

In all that we do, this is what we are on about. As a community of people who follow Jesus, our vision is to be Growing Life-Long Disciples of Christ.  In our gathered and personal worship; in how we grow and care for one another; as we reach out into our local community; and as we use the resources God has provided; our vision as a congregation is to be Growing Life-Long Disciples of Christ.
