Its church but not as you know it!

Food - Fun - Friends

 At its very heart, Ignite-D is about forming relationships; its about joining in Christs mission to heal the broken-hearted (Isaiah 61).

Its about meeting Christs people wherever or whoever they are, whatevers going on in their lives. Its about reaching out to those who feel they are on the fringes of society, showing individuals that they are loved (by us and by God) and extending Christs unconditional love and welcome to them. In the midst of chaotic and broken lives, Ignite-D aims to provide a safe place to meet each other, to question, to explore and to heal.

  • ·         Services will be held in St Marys Church from 7pm-8.30pm on Mondays
  • ·         At least the first 20-30 mins of each service will be fellowship with food
  • ·         The service will then follow a magazine-style format of short sections.
