Otter Vale Mission Community

More to church than just your local parish

Churches working together to nurture faith and serve our communities

There are different gifts, but the same Spirit and there are different ministries, but the same Lord1 Corinthians 12: 4 - 5

Welcome!

Maybe you’ve moved to the area and are looking for a new church, or maybe you’re just exploring coming to church for the first time: you’re very welcome at any of our Mission Community churches. Don’t be put off by oak doors or not necessarily understanding everything that goes on; being present with and open to God is the most important thing.
