Love for the city

We want to show God's love for the people in our city. We do this regularly and in various ways, including seeking opportunities to show kindness and be present for people in need. Treasure hunting is part of this, where we listen to God and go out into the city to talk and pray with people.


We strongly believe that community is incredibly important and that we are better together. Jesus is our shepherd and he always gathers his flock. We are created for fellowship, and we reflect God's love better in fellowship than when we are alone! The Bible is full of guidance for communities who want to live with Jesus and for Jesus – with love at the core. God is love, and love exists only in relationships. When relationships and communities are challenged,  we see it as an increased opportunity to live in love – God’s love – that we can share and grow in together!

Welcome to a year of family fellowship in the kingdom of God, welcome into a fellowship that has the dual goal: to receive more love from God and give more love to one another! 


Norway trip

The international students will have their own trip as Explore+ goes on a longer missions trip in the spring. For a few days we'll see the beauty and culture of Norway at the same time as we get to minister to different people and churches. It is a great experience where you get to know Norway a bit more and see more of God moving in and through you. Look at the practical info to see how much it costs.
