Sue Irwin - Senior Pastor

I believe God is calling us to display His power and His love in an unprecedented way. He is calling us on a journey of faith together to become a place of light, of hope, of power and of influence. I see us becoming a church of imports and exports- training and equipping people to bring transformation to every aspect of society and bringing people from other places in so they can be equipped and encouraged. I see us presenting the gospel in innovative and creative ways and seeing many people discover that life in Christ is very real and is in fact the desire of the heart of every person on the planet.

I see our church as a place of joy and that joy is our strength. In our church people will increasingly encounter the love of the Father who unites the family as one, who sees the potential in each unique person and releases that potential by the power of His Spirit into a world that is waiting for the children of God to rise up and be all we are created to be.

The church is not a building. It’s actually a house made of unique individuals, children of God, who together become a dwelling place where God lives by His Spirit.

I would love to invite you to join us here at The Grainery Church.

Ps Sue.
