St Aidan’s Hurstville Grove mission
We exist to know Christ and to make Him known.
St Aidan’s vision (the “what”)
We seek to grow disciples of Christ who walk intimately with God, who are part of the fellowship of the church, serving one another in love, and who reach out to the world with the good news of Jesus.
Our rationale (the “why”)
Then Jesus came to them and said, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptising them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.”
(verses 18-20, version © NIV®).
