- Long term
- 1-2 years, 2-5 years, 5 years or more
Ferrybank Christian Community Church, on the edge of Waterford City, has been reaching into the local community with hope, creativity and love, since 2010. We are a Christian Church, who are centred on Jesus as we find him in the bible, and seeking to grow in our love for him and for others.
We are a growing church, who are currently seeking people to join our church planting team, as we seek to build up the church as a team on mission in our community.
Could you add value to our values? As a church, we value
Creative and relevant bible teaching. This is at the heart of all we do, as we seek to grow in faith and be equipped as disciples to live for Jesus in our ordinary everyday.
Welcoming and warm relationships. In a culture which places a high value on relationships, we seek to show the welcome extended to all in the gospel of Jesus.
Unity in diversity. We come from a mix of different ages, backgrounds, nationalities and extend a warm welcome to all into a family like group where there is encouragement and support for one another.
Children and youth are an important part of our church family and we seek to teach them the bible in creative and fun ways that they can understand.
Serving our community. We seek to show our faith in our ordinary, everyday lives by loving and serving others in our community. We are also seeking to develop regular ministries to engage in social action and love our neighbour well.
Collaboration with other churches. We actively seek to build relationships, offer support and strengthen the work of other churches and Christians, as we work together for the gospel in Waterford and the surrounding area.
