FEAST creates a safe space to discuss, question, and challenge our faith and the Bible.

We are an ecumenical and progressive ministry dedicated to open-minded living, social justice and an emerging Christian faith. We are an open and affirming community where all people are welcome.

We seek to follow Jesus by serving each other and our wider communities. We live out our faith missionally by working for social justice and positive change.

We welcome questioning and doubt as expressions of great faithfulness. We see in the life and teachings of Jesus Christ an extravagant welcome where people of all genders, ethnic backgrounds, creeds, sexual orientations and gender identities are celebrated and affirmed.
