Who we are
We are all about making Jesus as accessible as possible to as many people as possible. That’s what churches are supposed to do, right? So what’s different about Park Road?
Well, we take the Bible seriously, but we try not to take ourselves too seriously. We laugh together when times are good and cry together when things are rough. We work really hard on our preaching and our music ministry because we want church to be exciting for everyone who comes along.
For us, following Jesus is about both the head and the heart – too often these are seen as either/or options. We’re convinced it’s meant to be both.
If you’re looking for a church to call ‘home’ – a place where you can be blessed, grow, be challenged and comforted – and a place where you can use the gifts God’s given you through His Spirit to serve Him and others, Park Road just might be the church you’re looking for.
To be a church that loves people where they are at – no matter how messy that might be – and then to walk with them on a journey that sees them changed, transformed, empowered and inspired to live a life that reflects Jesus.
We do this with boldness, joy, and passion.
We do this by staying faithful to God’s word.
We do this with authenticity: Park Road does not aspire to be a family of shiny, happy, rule-following Christians.
We aspire to be a family under Christ that is ‘real’ and full of grace.
We want people to come as they are and to always leave feeling better than when they first walked in.
Do we always get it right? No. Nothing’s perfect this side of heaven. But with love, faith, God’s grace, perseverance, and a whole lot of prayer, we keep working at it.
