About shoreline

A word about us

Church, at its core, is about finding a personal relationship with Jesus and knowing the joy of His grace and salvation.

At Shoreline, we encourage individuals of all ages and backgrounds to bring the Lord Almighty into their lives at every moment - moments of joy, moments of despair, and even those moments in between. We are committed to the teachings of Jesus Christ, and are here to spread His message with loving patience and kindness. 

Shoreline is a non-denominational fellowship and we have people from a range of Christian backgrounds and none! We value our relationships with other churches and Christians in the local area and beyond. It has been important to us to encourage and develop a sense of unity amongst all believers in our local community and focus on building God's kingdom as he taught us.
