Our values

Based on Jesus’ prayer for his disciples in John 17, we believe that, as a church, God has called us at St Sebastian's to be:


Not ‘Jesus and…’, but Jesus alone at the centre of our lives.

' ... glory has come to me through them …’ (John 17:10)


God-directed living, thinking, and speaking.

‘Sanctify them by the truth; your word is truth.' (John 17:17)


Not ‘I’ve won!’, but ‘We are one.'

‘… that they may be one as we are one …’  (John 17:22)


A serving church rather than a consumer church.

‘As you sent me into the world, I have sent them …’ (John 17:18)

Spirit-filled All God’s people using God’s gifts to the full.

'… so that they may have the full measure of my joy within them …’ (John 17:13)
