A Church With The Essence Of Generations Of Prayer




About St. Benedicts

Our Vision Statement

“To be a church that is inwardly transformed by the Holy Spirit; a church that reflects the virtue and Grace of Jesus; a church reaching out to proclaim God’s word to a broken world.”


Being transformed into the image of God. 2 Corinthians3:18 And we all with unveiled face,beholding the Glory of the Lord, are being transformed into the same image from one degree of glory to another. For this comes from the Lord who is the Spirit. 2 Peter 3:18 Grow in the Grace and Knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ.

Reaching Out

Go into all the world and proclaim the Gospel to the whole creation. 1 John 1:3- For what we have seen and heard we proclaim to you also. Matthew 25:40- And the King will answer them "Truly I say into you, as you did it to one of the least of my brothers, you did it to me."


For you will be a witness.Matthew 5:16- In the same way let your light shine before others that they may see your good works and give glory to your Father who is in heaven. Ephesians 4:32- Be kind to one another, tender hearted, forgiving one another, just as God, in Jesus has forgiven you.


The sacrifices of God are a broken spirit; a broken and contrite heart, O God you will not despise. Matthew 11:28- "Come unto me all who are weary and heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Psalm 105:4- Look to the Lord and His strength.

Behind The Red Door

St Benedict’s Red Door

Why a Red Door? A beacon, and an ancient tradition. The colour red is commonly associated with love, courage, sacrifice, blood, fire.  From early Old Testament, a Red Door takes us back to the red lamb’s blood that the ancient Hebrews spread on the door posts and lintels so that God would pass over them in Egypt.  In the blood, passion and death of Jesus, the Lamb of God, we like the Hebrews are saved from death as we enter the church, through His blood, and under His protection. The colour red is also symbol of the Holy Spirit. From the tongues of fire over the disciples at Pentecost, to today, individual Christians and the church are filled with the Holy Spirit. So again, entering a church through a Red Door is symbolically appropriate. The Protestant leader Martin Luther is said to have posted his 95 Theses on the Red Door of Wittenberg Castle Church, prompting Red Doors on many Lutheran churches, while historically a Red Door indicated a more Catholic bent in the Church of England. As Anglicans we have a tradition of the middle way and the Red Door symbolizes that we have both Protestant and Catholic heritages.
