Worshiping 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.
Developing Disciples
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.
Building Relationships
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.

Freemason Street is an active, open-hearted and open-minded community of committed Christians.
