Christian Ethos & Values
Our Christian Ethos is based on the Parable of the Mustard Seed which tells us that a seed is a beginning. The mustard seed is the tiniest of all the seeds, yet when it is planted it becomes the biggest of the plants in the garden; it becomes a tree. Birds come and rest in its branches.
