Welcome to the website of Shield church! Take a look around and find out about us here but please be assured of a warm and sincere welcome at our Sunday morning meeting detailed on these pages. We would be delighted to meet you personally, hear your story, and talk to you more about who we are and what we’re doing.
Our pastor recently shared with us his vision for a ‘balanced church’ taken from the widely read and highly acclaimed ‘purpose driven church’ by Rick Warren:
- Warmer through fellowship
- Deeper through discipleship
- Stronger through worship
- Broader through ministry, and
- Larger through evangelism.
As we meet and share with one another we aim to give equal significance, time and commitment to fulfilling these five strands of church life. If any are under or over-emphasised, there is a danger of falling into something less than the fullness of Jesus’ plan and commission for the local church. So the events and programs we seek to run are always undertaken with these principles in mind.
Are you a Christian looking for a church in South Shields? We hope you can find a spiritual home amongst us and that your relationship with Jesus deepens and widens in everyway as we serve Him together.
Are you unreligious and never stepped foot inside a church? Have you found yourself drawn to Jesus and wanting to find out more? You will find a whole cross section of Christians here at Shields church who will personally relate their own stories to you as you hear more about this Jesus who has turned our lives upside down!
