Our name, ‘Shofar’ (pronounced ‘show far’), is the Hebrew word for the ceremonial ram’s horn. In Biblical times, the shofar had several uses (all of which are significant to who we are). It was used to announce the advent of times and seasons. It was a pitcher for the oil used for anointing and inducting kings and priests. It also signalled a summons to war. The shofar is a metaphor for prophetic urgency, authority and mobilisation.
Our purpose statement is the vision God has given us as a church family. It is to reach nations and generations through disciple-making, leadership development and church planting. Our core values shape how we live out the vision God has given us. Our statement of faith explains what we believe in more detail.
what we do
Church is so much more than just a Sunday service. We’re an active church family that enjoys living life together, growing in faith, learning about God and working to see His kingdom come in our families and communities. Each person who gives their time and energy to serving in church is literally the hands and feet that make it possible for us to see God’s kingdom grow. Find out from your local congregation where you can volunteer your time.
