We are a group of Christians living in Harrow, North West London, who are exploring how we can make church more accessible to all the different cultural backgrounds who live around us. Our services are in English and we always seek to have representation, affirmation and celebration of other cultures and languages.
We intentionally describe ourselves as “intercultural” rather than ”multicultural”, because one can live in a multicultural society where cultures co-exist alongside each other, but still have little meaningful interaction.
At Mosaic we want to be an intercultural community who proactively values shared learning and blessing from each other’s cultural insights.
TO BE AN INTERCULTURAL CHURCH RESOURCE HUB
We are part of Intercultural Churches UK, a network of intercultural churches and church plants, working in partnership with others to help Christians in London and the UK to have a more global perspective. Some of our church family are also involved in the Diocese of London Intercultural Think Tank.
TO BE INTENTIONALLY INTERCULTURAL
We seek to be a culturally intelligent community, teaching and equipping our members, to be more culturally aware and sensitive.
We honour and celebrate cultural differences.
We hope people can find a place of belonging and a sense of family and community.
Diversity in leadership
Diversity in worship
We believe that our corporate worship as diverse peoples uniquely hosts something special of God’s presence.
We use English as the core language and there is always cultural and language representation to confirm our core beliefs that no culture has the best view of God.
We always end our services with food together, and encourage people to bring their “heart” food to share for the blessing of others.
Everything we do is rooted in prayer.
We join in with inter-church prayer initiatives, and in particular those organised by One Church Harrow, our supporting resource church.
We have started to do this regularly on the streets of Harrow as we want to see many more people find Jesus.
