Lead Pastors | James & Alanna Murray
A lot of people have perceptions and opinions about Church and some of them quite frankly, are true. But is that really what the church is about, the real church?
Despite popular opinion, the Church is not actually a place for perfect people. In fact, it is purpose-built for imperfect people. Jesus didn’t come for the perfect but for the soul-sick, the down and out, the broken and rejected, the good, the bad and the ugly things in our lives. He is all about people no matter who, what or where they came from, he proved that through the Cross.
We are a STRICTLY INCLUSIVE church. What does that mean? It means we believe that The Church shouldn't be a country club for the morally elite, but rather a hospital of hope for humanity - a place where people can come just as they are and find acceptance, belonging, genuine friendship and ultimately, Jesus. Not only does He love us the way we are, but He also loves us enough not to leave us the way we are.
C3 H M E. is all about discovering Jesus in a community of people who all have unique stories, challenges and experiences but share a desire to do the journey together.
We believe that The Gospel is for everyone, regardless of background, upbringing or church 'experience', the real message of Jesus is one of relentless grace, unconditional love and authentic community.
