That is the short version, below you will find more detail about why we do what we do!
Positive, strong relationships are vital for our personal well-being and the health of our church. We open our doors at 9:45 AM, half an hour before the worship service starts at 10:15 AM. This gives us an opportunity to grab a coffee, connect with each other, and build friendships. After the service is finished we get together for a shared lunch in the Family Centre, so feel free to come along, bring something to contribute, and join the conversation!
Worship is essential in the life of the Christian. Because worship is a two-way conversation of love with God our services are a blend of contemporary songs and spontaneous free worship. We do this because songs are inspirational and stir our faith, and spontaneous worship expresses our love for God in our own words and from our own life.
Christians grow in substance and integrity by a healthy diet of God’s word. We are blessed with a committed preaching team who are constantly seeking God for messages that are relevant and applicable, unpacking biblical truths that give people the tools they need for life.
Why church at all?
Between work, family, and the pressures of modern society, we are all running in the race of our lives. God designed church to be a place of encouragement, refreshment, and connection for all of us. Life can be difficult so don’t do it alone, come and be a part of our family!
