Common Ground


“Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of compassion and the God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our troubles, so that we can comfort those in any trouble with the comfort we ourselves have received from God”.  (2 Corinthians 1:3-4)


Welcome!  If you have found this page, it is likely because you either need some support at this time, or because you’d like to get involved in supporting those in our church family in particular need right now.  Either way, we are so glad that you are here! 


Our vision at Common Ground is simply to be the hands and feet of Jesus Christ, comforting those in any trouble with the comfort we ourselves have received from our compassionate and loving God.


For every one of us, there will be seasons when we are in particular need of support; during times of sickness, loss of a loved one, unemployment, marriage difficulties, depression, major life events, etc. Whatever your individual need, we would love to come alongside you, listen and pray with you, and offer practical help as a member of our church family.




Prayer plays vital role in worship and for individual lives.  For prayer requests, call the church office at
