“Even as the Son of Man came not to be served but to serve,
and to give his life as a ransom for many”

Matthew 20:28

We believe that serving not only blesses others but also transforms the person who is serving. We’re so very excited about the many great things that are happening here at St Saviour’s because of the servant hearts of our incredible church family.
