Abundare exists to help God's children see just how abundantly the Father loves them through art.
Sometimes we all forget just how much the Father loves us. Abundare helps folk to see that again, by creating art based upon Jesus' words:
'I have come so that they can have life; life to the full.'

He loves us
He cherishes us
We are His precious children
They love him
They know him
because of Jesus Christ
They are obedient to his call
They follow him, guided by his Word
And the good counsel of his Spirit
They pour themselves into making the world a better place
Translating his truth, compassion, grace and justice into public service
Being salt and light in order to preserve the good in society
Because they see the state society is in
They see the ignorance, the arrogance, the injustice,
the abuse of power, the vulnerable and the innocent
This pains them and makes them angry
because it isn’t right; it isn’t fair
God sees it all
Sees all that they are doing for his son
He is Abba, the father who cherishes us all so much
Who delights in us and rejoices
Calling out to the angels, ‘Come, look at what my precious child is doing!'
And just as they want to bring a better, more abundant life to others
So the Father wants them to see the life full to the brim and flowing over
that his son Jesus came to show them
My God-given mission is to be a conduit for the Father’s love
To create artwork which his children will be able to see with their eyes and carry in their heart
To help them to remember the love-letter the Father has written to them
