What We Believe

The artwork at the front of our church summarizes some of the key points of our faith:

In the central position on the altar we have a statue of the risen Christ extending hands of blessing.

The upper window to the right of the altar illustrates the Christian view of the threefold nature of God: named traditionally Father, Son and Holy Spirit, i.e. Trinity.

The upper window to the left of the altar depicts Martin Luther’s coat of arms, a summary of Lutheran theology: that at the centre of Christian faith is God’s love manifested on the cross where Jesus died.

The lower stained glass windows on both sides of the altar show Jesus knocking on the door asking to be invited in and Jesus as “the Good Shepherd”, caring for his followers.
