Cartsbridge Evangelical Church is an independent church which has its roots in the Brethren movement and is led by a group of elders. The global church is described in the Word of God as the bride of Christ who are a family of people called into fellowship with God, saved by Jesus Christ, and indwelt by the Holy Spirit in order that they might worship, witness and work to the glory of God.

Equip for life
We will guide believers to grow in Christian maturity in all areas through example, Bible study and training

Engage with Love

As God gives us direction we will respond to the needs of our community and the world
