Encountering God
Central to the life of our church is the worship of God. In worship, we encounter the Living Lord who comforts us in our hurts and confronts us in our complacency.
Educating the Heart
Even before Easter, Jesus was the One who was “standing up” in the midst of this world, fully aligned with God and God’s vision for the world.
Encouraging Community
Fellowship is a vital part of our faith community. We build relationships by gathering for conversation and to share our stories, deepening both our faith and friendships.
Engaging Our World
As our hearts are awakened through encountering God and we begin to stand up, aligning our hearts with the values of God’s kingdom, we begin to manifest the presence of Christ (Ephesians 5:14).

Freemason Street is an active, open-hearted and open-minded community of committed Christians. Here, all are encouraged to seek God’s presence and practice being the heart and hands of Christ in our world.
