One, holy, catholic, apostolic
St. Ignatius is a Roman Catholic church community committed to knowing, loving and serving Christ and His Kingdom. Our desire is that you may encounter Jesus and choose to follow Him.
We have found that the easiest, most fun way of encountering Jesus for the first time is on our Alpha course.
We are a home
The more the merrier
Bring your parents, your siblings, your children (and even your in-laws)! Nothing makes us happier than a church full of families. If needed, we have a Family Room in the back and a changing room available.
We offer special programs for kids and teens.

“Tend the flock of God that is in your charge, exercising the oversight, not under compulsion but willingly, as God would have you do it—not for sordid gain but eagerly. Do not lord it over those in your charge, but be examples to the flock.” 1 Peter 5:2-3
Rarely a day goes by that I do not learn something new from the amazing people I work with. That prospect excites me.

It’s great to be able to use my God-given talents, and be a witness to God’s Spirit, as He transforms the lives of the people here. To see with my very own eyes, God’s love moving, as we help build His Kingdom, one person at a time.

“If you want to build a ship, don’t drum up the men to gather wood, divide the work and give orders. Instead, teach them to yearn for the vast and endless sea.” Antoine de Saint-Exupéry
I love seeing how encountering Jesus changes people and brings them new life!

“Concerning all acts of initiative and creation, there is one elementary truth the ignorance of which kills countless ideas and splendid plans: that the moment one definitely commits oneself, then providence moves too… Whatever you can do or dream you can, begin it. Boldness has genius, power and magic in it. Begin it now.” Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
Great people, always lots of laughing! … Because if living your faith doesn’t significantly improve your life, then why bother?
