Our Vision

The Lane is a place where faith and real-life intersect

Our vision is to create a community of authentic believers to witness a community transformed by the life-changing reality of the gospel as people come to know Jesus.

That every man, women and child should repeatedly have the opportunity to hear, understand and to accept or reject the Good News of Jesus Christ.

We are members of the 'Evangelical Alliance' and'Together for the Harvest' group of  Churches on Merseyside and subscribe to their vision.
