“our life together is


Small and


At the Source Since 2018

The Source is a community of painters, poets, carers, charity-workers, students, teachers, tutors, designers, musicians and makers. We care about bringing dignity and destiny to humanity, outworking this calling as companions together. It is our desire to display the image of the Creator in our everyday lives and through partnering with others to play our part in seeing his image restored in the world around us through the way we live. What motivates us?

We take our lead from Jesus, who is the source of everything we do. 
— Ephesian 4: 15, 16 THE MESSAGE

We recognise that we are not perfect nor fully formed! We have responded to the invitation Jesus extends to everyone to follow him and learn to walk in his way of life. Through creating an environment of extended family which values the tough times as well as enjoying fun and celebration we are committed to helping one another make the most of moments where we can learn, grow and become the kind of people God intends us to be. We would love you to come as you are and join us on this journey!
