At Living Waters you will hear us saying that we are ‘on a journey with friends to freedom’. None of us have ‘arrived’ and so this is a journey we are on together.
Jesus came to enable us to live according to our original design, which in a nutshell is loving God and loving people. So people are at the heart of our church. Understanding how valuable every person on earth is and learning about their uniqueness is part of a journey of seeing people through God’s eyes. Everything we do has this at its heart. We are all on a journey of seeing God’s love for us, accepting his call to relationship and then as we become more like him, loving others as he has loved us.
We love Living Waters because...
I remember arriving at living waters over 13 years ago and on that day meeting a few of the people who are still my closest friends now. I had come from a lively, noisy church in London, so the style suited me straight away. But over time I have come to realise that the most important thing in church is not the style but the heart. I love that at the heart of Living Waters we want to connect on a deeper level with God and each other. This has been a real journey for me, learning how to be more vulnerable and trusting in relationships, but the reward has been some of the deepest and most enduring friendships I've had in my life! And we have a lot of fun, fun is very important!!
