Our Mission, Vision, and Values

Our Mission

Knowing God’s Grace

We believe that God has made himself known in his Son Jesus Christ, through his Word written in the Bible, and as he dwells with us by his Holy Spirit. In response we desire to grow in our relationship with God, we seek to glorify and enjoy Him forever.

Living God’s Grace

We believe that in response to his grace God calls us to be His church in the world. In the power of his Holy Spirit we rely on God in prayer, and we seek to use our gifts to make disciples, to love one another, and to serve our city.

Sharing God’s Grace

We believe that the gospel is the power of God for the salvation of all who believe. We long to see many in our city hear the good news of God’s grace in Jesus Christ and have their lives transformed as they repent and believe.


Our prayer is to be a growing, welcoming church family, delighting in God and resting in His grace; each person being transformed by the gospel to become more like Jesus, loving one another and our community, being equipped to share the gospel and use our gifts in Wagga and beyond to God’s glory.


  1. Developing church facilities that serve the ministry
  2. Developing and maintaining a strong, godly and well-equipped team of leaders
  3. Effectively welcoming and integrating people into the life of the church
  4. Developing a culture of effectively engaging with our community


At least 85% of youth and adults at St Aidan’s understand their spiritual gifts and feel encouraged and supported as they use them in the service of Jesus.

Our Core Values

  • We value the gospel as ‘the power of God for the salvation of every one who believes’ — the good news that God came to us in his Son, Jesus Christ, that Jesus died for our sins and rose victorious from the tomb, and that consequently we have eternal life through him, if, by the power of the Holy Spirit, we turn to him as our Lord and trust him as our Saviour. We recognise that ‘there is no other name under heaven given to men by which we must be saved’.
  • We value the grace of God that gives us salvation when we do not deserve it and could never earn it. In response to that grace we seek to live as God has called us to — with a faith that is shown by holiness, righteousness and love.
  • We value the Bible as God’s reliable, authoritative Word. We value the preaching of that Word. We seek to defend its truth, obey its precepts and submit to its authority over all aspects of our life.
  • We value the Father’s gift of prayer through which the Holy Spirit upholds us and strengthens us in Christ, in all that we do until His return.
  • We value the church, the body of Christ, chosen by God and gathered by Him at St Aidan’s to declare His praises by loving one another and working together to grow in Christ. We value unity in our church, with a diversity of generations, backgrounds, styles and ministries. We recognise that we are one church, gathering as multiple inter-dependent church families.
  • We value making the gospel known to others by sharing the content of the gospel in words and by demonstrating the implications of the gospel in our lives.
  • We value demonstrating love – because God first loved us. In response we seek to love our church family and community through sacrificial, prayerful and practical care. We seek to express God’s love by caring for and welcoming people of all backgrounds and nations.
  • We delight in God and we seek to Glorify Him and enjoy Him forever.
