To us at IIC, mission is a mentality not a location

L1 Fifty Three

“He has filled the hungry with good things,
And sent the rich away empty-handed.”
Luke 1:53 (NASB)

Sending to the nations

Local missions

Romanian Fellowship

We have connections with other fellowships of other language speakers, therefore we look to establish places where people of all different nations and languages feel welcome …

Our Values

As a church and a family of believers we seek to be the following 5 key areas in our lives as individuals and as a part of Christ’s wider church as we go about making disciples and impacting nations.

Gathering Life Shape


We are family friendly, where people of all ages, backgrounds, live out life together. We do this as dispersed community in Relational Cells, and gathered celebrations on Sundays.

Growing Life Shape


We are committed to lifelong learning where everyone is effectively discipled. We create environments where information, imitation and immersion happen.

Giving Life Shape


We seek to live a contagiously generous lifestyle within the body and the local community. We do this by being generous with our time, talents and treasure.

Going Life Shape


We believe in being passionately mission minded wherever we are. We seek to reach the least, the last and the lost in our neighbourhoods, town and the nations.

Glorifying Life Shape


We believe all the above are built upon the foundation of an intimate and intercessory walk with the Holy Spirit.


Meet our leadership team, we cant wait to meet with you. Come say hi this Sunday morning at 9am or 11am.
