Vision: A space for God in the City’s Heart
Sing the songs you still can sing
Forget your perfect offering
There is a crack in everything
That’s how the light gets in.
Adapted from “Anthem” by Leonard Cohen
To walk with Jesus in the city,
honouring the past,
transforming the present,
creating the future.
