Our Pastor

Georgina had a challenging upbringing and it is fair to say she knows and understands the word ‘struggle’ in the real sense!


She has made ‘The Tab’ a place and a church for all. She heard the call to ministry at a young age and completed her training at Spurgeon’s College.

She is passionate about people growing in the Lord and seeing them fulfil their God-given destinies. By God’s grace she has raised up an incredible, strong leadership team around her that assists in many ways in the running of the church vision. 

Georgina has been married to Steve for over forty years and they have three daughters, a son, and six beautiful grandchildren.

Our Mission

“The Spirit of the LORD is upon me, because He has anointed me to preach the good news to the poor; He has sent me to heal the broken-hearted, to proclaim liberty to the captives and recovery of sight to the blind, to set at liberty those who are oppressed; to proclaim the year of the LORD’s favour.”  Luke 4:18-19

 
 

Vision

Our vision is to deepen our relationship with God and to continue to reach out to others with love and compassion.

We believe that the Church is key to transforming our local community – and that by working closely with our members, we can transform our society with the good news of Jesus and the power of the Holy Spirit.


We aim to do this through our personal walk with Christ and by following Jesus’ example.

Values

It’s all about Jesus: “Love each other with genuine affection, and take delight in honouring each other.” Romans 12:10 NLT

 

We are called to love the Lord with all of our heart, soul, mind and strength. It is the First Commandment Jesus gave us.

 

We do this by encouraging all to allow the love of God into all areas of our heart, including the messed up places, so that we can help and minister more effectively the love of God to others. 

 

What does this look like? We believe that as Christians we should be walking in the power and grace of Jesus, bringing encouragement, healing, deliverance and all of the benefits of God to the world around us. To this end, we believe in equipping the church to do the Father’s work, both in the church and the marketplace.
 

As part of the Harvest Alliance worldwide family of churches, we also embrace the core vision and values which are expressed in the four FIRE values:

F.    The Father’s love revealed through the Lord Jesus Christ.

I.     Intimacy with God and hearing his voice.

R.   Restoration of the heart and the healing of inner hurts.

E.   Extending the kingdom of God through the equipping and   empowering of the Holy Spirit.

Our Beliefs

We affirm the Nicene Creed

We believe in one God,

the Father, the Almighty,

maker of heaven and earth,

of all that is, seen and unseen.


We believe in one Lord, Jesus Christ,

the only Son of God,

eternally begotten of the Father,

God from God, Light from Light,

true God from true God,

begotten, not made,

of one Being with the Father;

through him all things were made.


For us and for our salvation

he came down from heaven,

was incarnate of the Holy Spirit and the Virgin Mary

and became truly human

For our sake he was crucified under Pontius Pilate;

he suffered death and was buried.

On the third day he rose again

in accordance with the Scriptures;

he ascended into heaven

and is seated at the right hand of the Father.


He will come again in glory to judge the living and the dead,

and his kingdom will have no end.


We believe in the Holy Spirit, the Lord, the giver of life,

who proceeds from the Father [and the Son],

who with the Father and the Son is worshipped and glorified,

who has spoken through the prophets.

We believe in one holy catholic and apostolic Church.

We acknowledge one baptism for the forgiveness of sins.

We look for the resurrection of the dead,

and the life of the world to come.

Charities We Support

We are proud to support these wonderful organisations in the work they do around the world
